This fall seems like the golden age of animated films, as the film studios drop sequels to “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and prep for the releases of “Free Birds” and “The Nut Job” in the coming months.

Yet the crowded world of family-friendly animated fare doesn’t appear to be making room anytime soon, what with the release of “Rio 2” just around the corner, CinemaBlend reports.

A teaser for the 3D sequel to the well-liked 2011 film, once again starring Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway, has just been unveiled, and though it doesn’t give a great deal of information on the plot, “Rio 2” certainly looks like a party.

The movie has an expert voice cast that includes Leslie Mann as Blu's former owner (“This is 40”), Jamie Foxx, Kristin Chenoweth as a poisonous frog, Bruno Mars and Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.am, among others.

“Rio” 2 hits theaters on April 11, 2014, so we’ll have to wait and see if fans of the original will flock to theaters for the sequel.
