“Rio 2″ Teaser Trailer

Rio 2, directed by Carlos Saldanha and produced by Blue Sky Studios, will be released in April 2014. Here is the official synopsis released this morning with this teaser:

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.

    Cute. I gotta say, I’m looking forward to this, as I really enjoyed Rio.
    So far Fox released two trailers for animated sequels, but we still haven’t seen anything regarding Mr. Peabody and Sherman, which I’m really looking forward to!

  • Roberto Severino

    Great opening gag! That had me laughing a lot. Good luck to the crew over at Blue Sky.

  • Jen Hurler

    Well…that was unexpected. Can’t wait to see more!

  • Dana B

    Pretty cute. Wasn’t truly crazy about the first, but maybe Rio 2 will be a step up from its’ predecessor. Hopefully there will actually be an art book this time around!

    (How did Blue Sky know my weakness for capybaras? :P)

    I’ve never seen Rio–but I must admit that was a very cute gag. Better not show it to my capybara loving mother though…

  • Andrew Kieswetter

    Hollywood is getting really on my nerves, with making sequels to EVERY SUCCESSFUL animated film…. This has to stop.
