Here’s the synopsis of Rio:
Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is a rare species of blue macaw resident at a bookstore in Minnesota, who is the last of his kind. When scientists learn that another macaw was spotted in South America, and that the macaw, Jewel (Anne Hathaway), is female, they take him out of Minnesota and send him to Rio de Janeiro to meet her. While there, he learns to confront his fear of flying in order to win her heart. Along the way, they get kidnapped by poachers to sell them to get a fortune. After they escape, they try to avoid the thieves with help from Rafael, a wise Toucan (George Lopez), Luiz, a chainsaw “professional” bulldog (Tracy Morgan), Linda, Blu’s owner (Leslie Mann), Hoagie, a silly marmoset (Wanda Sykes), Marco, a redhead bird (will.i.am) and Bobby, a small yellow canary (Jamie Foxx), and also avoid the theives’ pet cockatoo, Nigel (Jemaine Clement).
If I’m not mistaken, this is the first animated film to have Brazil as its setting.
Rio will fly its way to theaters on April 8 in Brazil and April 15 in the US and the rest of the world.
