Blue Sky and 20th Century Fox have unveiled a colorful new trailer for the animated comedy sequel, Rio 2, featuring the voices of Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway. The new adventures of rare blue macaws Blu and Jewel finds the familiar characters from Rio moving to the Amazon to reconnect with their roots. The colors are vibrant, the visuals are gorgeous, but what about the story? Rio‘s plot let that animated movie down and hopefully the sequel can deliver something a little more developed and entertaining.
The entire cast of the animated smash Rio returns in Rio 2, and they are joined by a new flock of top actors and musical talents. Rich with grandeur, character, color and music, Rio 2 finds Jewel (Hathaway), Blu (Eisenberg) and their three kids leaving their domesticated life in that magical city for a journey to the Amazon. They encounter a menagerie of characters who are born to be wild, voiced by Oscar nominee Andy Garcia, Oscar/Emmy/Tony-winner Rita Moreno, Grammy winner Bruno Mars, and Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth.
