'Rio 2' Trailer Proves Family, Music Come First


So long, Brazil. Hello, Amazon rain forest!

If the animators behind Rio 2 were looking for a more vibrant, colorful, gorgeous location in which to set their sequel, they seem to have found it… as suggested by the latest trailer, which just dropped.

Like so many sequels, the Rio 2 plot seeks to introduce long-lost family members, expanding the ensemble to include new celebrity voices. That gimmick famously worked for the Toy Story franchise…



The Ice Age franchise…



And the Shrek franchise, to name just a few.



What Rio has going for it, as well, is the musical component. We had vibrant South American beats in the original movie. Here, we get a Cats joke, which somehow feels fresh.

Rio 2 stars the voices of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, will.i.am, Jamie Foxx, George Lopez and Tracy Morgan. It soars into theaters on April 11 in 3D. And by the looks of this trailer, it will be a vibrant adventure for the whole family!
