So in the continued tradition of making sequels to almost every Blue Sky movie ever created, Rio 2, which will be directed by Carlos Saldanha, has released a new trailer and an official synopsis.
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 (Anne Hathaway), Blu (Jesse 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.
And, maybe it’s just me, but the trailer looks really adorable, I mean, Clara the Capybara singing “Memory”? Ahhh….
Of course, we do have to end with the stereotypical scene with the animals partying. Thanks for making that the status quo Madagascar…
Rio 2 will be released in April of 2014. Does this trailer make you excited for the film?
