Ill be honest this one slipped under my radar and when I was speaking to my friend about this he got really excited as he believed his favourite all time pop band Duran Duran were re-releasing Rio there famous song! How devasted he was when I gave him the sad news! Sometimes yo hear slightly about movies realor animated and it sort of passess you buy until but this nearly did but it has a A-list of actors to voice the characters with Jesse Eisenberg & Anne Hathaway. Eisenberg voices Blue a Macaw who believes he cant fly and Hathaway is Jewel a female macaw who is a little more adventurous than blu who is actually domesticated and both where kidnapped but end up escaping for adventure around exoctic Rio De Janiero!!!
The Movie also has George Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Carlos Ponce, Tracy Morgan, Jane Lynch, Wanda Sykes ending their voices to the film which will be released on April 8th, 2011.

RIO is a 3-D animation feature from the makers of the “Ice Age” films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there’s another – and that she’s a she – he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it’s far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life’s many wonders. RIO brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance.
