Watch: Cute, Musical First Two Minutes of Blue Sky's Animated 'Rio'
We don't normally post these "first five minutes" clips because I'm opposed to clips, but I was watching this over the shoulder of my friend Peter from SlashFilm, and I am totally sold. Fox has debuted on Bing the first two minutes of the animated movie Rio from Blue Sky Studios (of Ice Age) and it's a very musical, very fun, and very cute introduction to this charming flick. The voices in it are: Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jemaine Clement, Rodrigo Santoro, Jamie Foxx, George Lopez and Leslie Mann. I really suggest checking this out, it's just so much fun, and that macaw is SO frickin' cute! Watch the intro below and enjoy!
Watch the two minutes from Blue Sky Studio's Rio:
A nerdy macaw who lives in a small-town zoo in Minnesota takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro.
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 15th, 2011 next spring.
