Blu is back in the first trailer for “Rio 2.”
Picking up after Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and his lady love, Jewel (Anne Hathaway), have settled down and welcomed three kids, the animated sequel heats up when they learn that there are in fact for blue macaws in the Amazon.
The brood attempts to reintroduce themselves to the rainforest with the assistance of his former owner, Linda (Leslie Mann), and Tulio (Rodrigo Santoro), CinemaBlend reports.
Of course, the transition cannot go all that smoothly, so things get awkward when Jewel’s father (Andy Garcia) and ex-boyfriend (Bruno Mars) end up back in her life.
The film also features the voices of Tracy Morgan (“30 Rock”), will.i.am, George Lopez, Kristin Chenoweth, Jamie Foxx and Jemaine Clement.
Though their locales are polar opposites, the folks behind “Rio 2” are likely hoping to capitalize on the success of “Frozen” with the new trailer.
Adjusting for inflation, “Frozen” marks Disney’s biggest launch for an animated film since 1994’s “The Lion King,” proving that there is still an appetite for animated fare.
“Rio 2” hits theaters on April 11, 2014. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments!
