I don’t know about you, but my Tuesday has been pretty miserable, so I thought I’d brighten it up a little by sharing the first two minutes of the brand new animated film from the creators of Ice Age, Rio – a film which features the delights & wonders of Rio de Janeiro.
RIO is a 3D motion picture event from Blue Sky Studios, the makers of the “Ice Age” films and one of the most successful producers of animated feature films in the world. The comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota for the exotic wonders of Rio de Janeiro. But Blu’s new life and adventures in Rio are complicated by the fact that he can’t fly. Lucky for Blu, his new menagerie of friends are ready to help him find his inner-hero – and teach him what it really means to soar.
Check out the first two minutes below:
And here’s the trailer:
Rio hits UK cinemas in April 2011.
