Blu, Flying Near You
From the makers of ICE AGE, here comes another family-friendly film, RIO.
A story of, a rare species and the last male of its kind, a Blue Macaw named Blu who gets out from his comfort zone and fights the fear to win his heart. Lending Blu’s voice is The Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg with his partner/loveteam Jewel (Anne Hathaway). The film was jam-packed with great actors, a wise Toco Toucan (George Lopez); Luiz, a bulldog (Tracy Morgan); Linda, Blu’s owner (Leslie Mann); Flora, a Roseate Spoonbill (Wanda Sykes); Fernando, a teenage boy (Jake T. Austin); Pedro, a Red-crested Cardinal (Will.I.Am); and Nico, a small Yellow Canary (Jamie Foxx); with bottle cap as a hat.
The film took place, well, in Rio de Janeiro. Under development for years, Rio is considered “Brazilian-born Saldanha’s dream project“. Saldanha reported that the film will be more musical than his comedic Ice Age movies.
So catch it flying soon near you. 🙂
