Yesterday we went to Fox Plaza for a sneak peek into Epic, now available on Blu-Ray and DVD!
to tell us a little bit about the inspiration behind the bug characters in Epic.
Ken is contacted frequently for "props" in TV and movies.
You can find Ken featured in the Epic Blu-Ray bonus piece, "Bugs of Camouflage."
The armor of the leafmen in Epic is based off bug exoskeletons.
Here you can see one of the cool features of the Emperor Scorpion, a glow-in-the-dark shell!
They use these to be able to see themselves in the moonlight.
If they are glowing, then they know it is too bright to safely come out!
Some other random bug facts we learned from Ken the Bug Guy:
- Grasshoppers come in different colors to blend into their various environments.
- Tarantulas are the most popular bug to collect. There are over 100 types!
- Ken's favorite bug in the movie Epic is the fruit fly.
We went home with these little figurines from Epic!
My kids will have so much fun acting out their favorite scenes from the movie
and using their imaginations to create new storylines with these great characters!
Thanks Fox for a great movie and a great day!
