Watch: Second Full Theatrical Trailer for Blue Sky's Animated 'Rio'

Time to fly. I just made that tagline up, but it works. Fox has debuted a new full-length trailer on Apple for Blue Sky Studio's animated comedy Rio, about a domesticated blue macaw who winds up in Brazil. This is the second trailer we've seen, following the teaser back in May, and it looks fun but oh so typical. We already know the two birds will hook up after the physically and emotionally challenging adventure. Plus when the teaser hit, we didn't know it was Jesse Eisenberg voicing "Blu" but now we do and it just sounds like him, not a macaw. Anyway, I'm probably being too harsh on this charming animated movie, so watch and enjoy!

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.
