Rio is a new movie from the creators of Ice Age coming to theaters on April 15th! My kids have already been enjoying the previews for this as we stream them from our XBox 360 and Lucian just asked me the other day when we get to go see it in the theater.
It features a voice cast of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jemaine Clement, Leslie Mann, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, will.i.am (from Black Eyed Peas), Rodrigo Santoro, Jake T. Austin and Jamie Foxx.
For someone who lives less than an hour away from starting point of the movie in Minnesota, I’m really look forward to seeing both how they portray Minnesotans (which often in movies is not in a positive light) but also to be able to connect with the shock the character feels when visit such a warm climate in comparison to his home!
From the makers of the hit ICE AGE series comes RIO, a comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, living a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he’s the last of his kind, but when they learn about another Macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu’s female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. With the help of street smart Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking and smooth-talking city birds, Blu escapes. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.
