Host an Epic DigitalHD Outdoor/Camping Party! #EpicDay @FHEInsiders

From the creators of Ice Age, the year’s funniest, most exhilarating animated adventure comes home as EPIC debuts on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Deluxe Edition Blu-ray, and DVD this August 20 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Directed by Chris Wedge (The Ice Age Franchise) and featuring an amazing voice cast including Colin Farrell, Amanda Seyfried, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Pitbull, and BeyoncĂ©, the blockbuster film comes home just in time to help families become one with nature and end the summer in Epic style.

Transported to a magical world, a teenager (Amanda Seyfried) is recruited by a nature spirit, Queen Tara (BeyoncĂ© Knowles), to help the “Leafmen” save their existence – and ours – from evil warriors. The whole family will love this fast-paced thrill-ride, with its astonishing animation and all-star voice cast that includes Colin Farrell, Oscar Winner Christoph Waltz, and Steven Tyler!

Every Blu-ray and DVD comes with the Epic Coloring and Storybook Builder app. The app will allow kids to create their own Epic story and share it with family and friends.

The EPIC Blu-ray combo-pack includes Blu-ray, DVD and DigitalHD and comes complete with exclusives that will have kids both engaged and learning about the environment, just before heading back to school. With special features including an overview of what life as a person two inches tall would be like, to discovering all of the different bugs from the film, EPIC is the perfect gift for families to enjoy from summer to the holidays!

Today you can own  EPIC on DigitalHD!  Purchase Epic  DigitalHD on iTunes for $12.99  or purchase Epic [HD] on Amazon for $14.99!  Why not host an Epic DigitalHD Outdoor/Camping Party and gather the kids for one last party before school starts!  Here are some ideas to get your juices flowing!

We have a fire in the fire pit, S’mores are almost a must in the summer, but when you have a number of kids over, you may not want all the kids roasting over a fire.  Get the same great S'mores  taste in Hershey’s S’more Trail Mix!
Hershey’s S’more Trail Mix:
  • Marshmallows -I used bite sized ones
  • Graham Crackers -I used Honey Maid Lil Squares
  • Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Drops

  1. Empty all ingredients into a large bowl or bag, gently toss to combine.
  2. Store mix in an airtight container.

Help the kids plant a seed, explore the backyard, and capture bugs before settling down in a tent or on the patio with some hot coco to watch Epic on a portable device. During the film, kids can enjoy festive like Epic-themed snacks and drinks, including healthy snacks, like M.K.’s Ants on a Log (celery, peanut butter and raisins).

Food ideas:
  • Burgers and dogs on the grill
  • Pizza
  • Trail Mix
  • Ants on a Log
  • Punch
  • Bug Juice
