LONDON (AP) — Beyonce says she loved voicing Queen Tara in the new children's movie "Epic" — at least once she stopped crying.

The singer-songwriter has gone from pop royalty to screen royalty, becoming the forest queen in the animated movie that she hopes her 15-month-old daughter Blue Ivy will be proud of one day.

The film was her first work since giving birth and she says her hormones were raging. Beyonce says "I literally had tears when I played the voice," imagining her own child in a critical scene.

From the creators of the "Ice Age" and "Rio" series, "Epic" follows a teenager who is transported into a secret forest world and finds herself in a battle between good and evil.

It will be released in the U.S. on May 22.
