Shake Your Tail Feather with First Musical Teaser Trailer for 'Rio 2'
It's time to shake your tail feathers again. After Blue Sky's musical animated film Rio became a surprise hit, the blue macaws voiced by Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, along with a colorful supporting cast voiced by the likes of will.i.am, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Jamie Foxx and more, are back for Rio 2. The film doesn't arrive until next spring, but a teaser trailer has arrived that will have kids dancing in the theaters and tapping their feet. It's a cute little trailer, but as someone who wasn't impressed by the first film, this one has some work to do to get me excited. Watch it!
Here's the teaser trailer for Blue Sky's Rio 2 from the film's YouTube channel:
Rio 2 finds Jewel (Anne Hathaway), Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and their three kids leaving their domesticated life in that magical city for a journey to the Amazon. There they encounter a menagerie of characters who are born to be wild with voices provided by Andy Garcia, Rita Moreno, Bruno Mars and Kristin Chenoweth. In addition, will.i.am, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Bebel Gilberto, Jake T. Austin and Jamie Foxx are all reprising their roles from the first film. The animated sequel is directed by Carlos Saldanha (Rio) and Fox and Blue Sky send it to theaters on April 11th, 2014 next spring. Good?
