Rio is a cute movie coming out April 15th at a theater near you. Created by the creators of Ice Age, it’s an animal movie appealing to my kids as they have seen a preview of the movie and were excited by it. Watch this behind the scenes of Rio, Feel the Rhythm as Jamie Foxx mentions how excited he is to work with Will.I.Am as they create the music and rhythm behind Rio! Check it out:
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.
