“In Rio 2, we find Blu, Jewel and their three kids living the perfect domesticated life in that magical city. When Jewel decides the kids need to learn to live like real birds, she insists the family venture into the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in with his new neighbors, he worries he may lose Jewel and the kids to the call of the wild.
Brazilian music legend and Rio executive music producer Sergio Mendes also returns along with composer John Powell. Rio 2 will feature new Brazilian artists and original music by Janelle Monáe, who also voices a role in the film.”
I did enjoy the first Rio movie. Let’s hope the sequel will be at least as entertaining and won’t disappoint.
The film is directed by Carlos Saldanha who helmed the first film.
The release date of Rio 2 is set for April 11, 2014.
