Rio 2 - Teaser Trailer
Director Carlos SaldanhaYear 2014Genre(s) Animation
Blu and Jewel live as an idyllic life as any blue macaw could wish for, raising their babies under the protection of their owners Linda and Tulio; two humans determined to keep the Brazilian jungle safe from the likes of the smugglers that previously endangered them. Rio bird parties are regular, and their flamboyant and unusual friendship group comprising of Pedro, a Red-crested Cardinal; Nico, a Yellow Canary; Rafael, Toco Toucan; and Luiz, a bulldog, are still with them enjoying their wonderful tropical lives. However, Jewel - a free spirit - wishes for nothing more than to venture into the wilderness of the Amazon rainforest; to raise their children among 'normal' birds and learn the ways of the wild. Used to being domesticated, adventure has never been a part of Blu's character and while struggling to adapt to his new surroundings, he finds himself intensely worried about the fate of his family. And when Nigel the evil Sulphur-crested Cockatoo makes his return, their new lives becoming anything but easy.
The sequel to 2011's 'Rio' is getting closer with the return of director Carlos Saldanha ('Ice Age', 'Robots') accompanied by a new co-screenwriter Don Rhymer ('Big Momma's House', 'The Santa Clause 2'). Don't get too eager though; we still have a while to wait as this lovable animated flick won't hit UK screens until April 4th 2014.
