From the makers of the Ice Age Trilogy here comes RIO - a 3-D animation!  Set in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure revolves on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his species. When Blu discovers there's another and that she's a she he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it's far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. 

Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life's many wonders. Rio  brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance.

It is directed by Carlos Saldanha and written by Don Rhymer. The characters are voiced by Neil Patrick Harris, Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Rodrigo Santoro, Kate del Castillo and Bernardo De Paula. Expected release date will be in April 8, 2011.
