Must Watch: First Trailer for Blue Sky Studio's New Film 'Rio'
Along with DreamWorks new trailer for Megamind, 20th Century Fox has debuted a trailer (on Moviefone) for their newest animated movie hitting theaters a year from now, next April. Rio is about a rare species of macaw from a zoo in Minnesota who embarks on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil when he learns that there is a female macaw located there. I've always liked Blue Sky's movies, but I haven't enjoyed any of their Ice Age sequels, but this looks like a solid return to form. It also reminds me of Surf's Up a little bit and that may be because the same screenwriter wrote this script, too. Anyway, it's a fun early teaser, so check it out!

Rio is directed by Rio de Janeiro native Carlos Saldanha, who co-directed of Blue Sky's Ice Age, Robots, Ice Age: The Meltdown and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs previously. The screenplay was written by family writer Don Rhymer, of Big Momma's House, The Santa Clause 2, Agent Cody Banks 2, The Honeymooners, Deck the Halls, and Surf's Up previously. This is Blue Sky Studios sixth feature animated film since Ice Age in 2002. 20th Century Fox is bringing Rio to theaters everywhere starting on April 8th, 2011 next spring.
