Talk about a role fit for Queen Bey!

Beyoncé‘s wearing a new crown with Queen Tara in the upcoming animated flick Epic, and she’s revealed it was an overwhelming experience.

“You know, I was honored when they asked for me to do this role and I was actually pregnant at the time,” Beyoncé revealed to Good Morning America. “And I thought, you know, by the time this comes out my daughter will understand it’s my voice, and what an incredible, cool point. It’s a beautiful role and it has so much depth. It’s so emotional. I was crying when I did the voiceover. And it was the first thing I did after giving birth.”
