It’s a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their kids as they leave Rio de Janeiro for the wilds of the Amazon in Rio 2, released on Friday at the Showcase in Bargeddie.
Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their three kids leave their domesticated life in the city of Rio de Janeiro for a journey to the Amazon rainforest where they encounter a menagerie of characters born to be wild.
Upon arrival, the family comes across Jewel’s long-lost father, Eduardo (Andy Garcia) who is in hiding with a tribe of other Spix’s Macaws.
At first everything seems perfect but Blu is having trouble fitting in.
Things get worse when they realize that their Amazonian habitat is under threat and that Blu and Jewel’s old nemesis Nigel the cockatoo (Jemaine Clement) is back for revenge.
Also lending their vocal talents are Jamie Foxx, Will i Am, Leslie Mann and Bruno Mars.
Rio 2 is rated U and runs 101 minutes.
