The cast of the animated hit comedy Rio returns — along with a new flock of all-star voice talent, including Bruno Mars, Kristin Chenoweth, Andy Garcia and more — in this high-flying sequel for the whole family. The party continues when Blu (Oscar® nominee Jesse Eisenberg1), Jewel (Oscar® winner Anne Hathaway2) and their three kids take a walk on the wild side and embark on a colorful, comical, music-filled journey through the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit into his new surroundings, he goes beak-to-beak with the villainous Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all: his father-in-law!
This DVD is full of extras, including several sing-a-long AND dance-along clips for the whole family to enjoy!
Learn about Brazilian music, see animal auditions and more!
Make movie night even more Rio-themed fun by chopping up some bananas and other fruit, and passing out lemonades before showtime.
And after the movie, keep the conversation going by doing an activity sheet- my favorite choice is the family tree, since Wonder Boy is really into understanding the relationships between him and other members of our family. He loves to point out who is my mom and dad and Mr. Wonder’s moms and dad, and understands Nana is my dad’s mom.
This movie has such amazing songs in it, ones I turn up the music and jam like no one’s in the backseat (well, as long as there is no one in the backseat). What’s your favorite?
