The family and I were out at the movies a few weeks ago, when we saw the CUTEST preview. My kids were laughing and I, too, was getting excited to see a new animated film that takes families on an adventures through Latin America, specifically Rio De Jenerio. You DO know that is the ONE place I want to go the first time I travel out of the country, right?
This new animated movie has some really amazing actors including my newly favorite Jessie Eisenberg (You can blame the Social Network for that one), Anne Hathaway, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, will.i.am, Jamie Foxx, and Jake T. Austin to name a few. Which movie am I talking about? Well, Rio the movie of course! Have you seen the previews?
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.
When does Rio hit theaters? April 15th guys! Mark it on your calendar.
The kids and I are so excited about the movie and to add to that excitement, next month we’re bringing you a really fun Rio Giveaway, and will, of course, give you our take on the movie after we see it.
