Watch Rio 2
Rio 2 is a 2014 animated musical adventure-comedy film by Blue Sky Studios and directed by Carlos Saldanha. The movie is a sequel to the first Rio movie from 2011 and follows the adventures of a group of birds living in Rio de Janeiro. The main character in the movie is Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg), a rare blue macaw who lives with his mate Jewel (voiced by Anne Hathaway) and their three children in the city. Blu, being a domesticated bird, struggles to adapt to life in the wild as he tries to raise his family. He is worried that his children will inherit his awkwardness and inability to fly properly. Jewel, on the other hand, encourages her children to embrace their instincts as wild macaws.
The plot of the movie takes place when Blu finds out that there is another group of blue macaws living deep in the Amazon rainforest, and Jewel thinks it would be great to go and meet them. They embark on a journey through the dense jungle with their friends - the toucan Rafael (George Lopez), the cardinal Pedro (Will.i.am), and the canary Nico (Jamie Foxx).
On their journey, they meet a variety of new characters including Roberto (Bruno Mars) - a handsome macaw who used to be Jewel's childhood friend, Eduardo (Andy Garcia) - Jewel's stern, traditionalist father, and the antagonist of the film, Nigel (Jemaine Clement) - a revenge-seeking evil cockatoo who is still bitter about his defeat to Blu in the previous film.
The movie has a great soundtrack, featuring songs written and performed by various artists including Bruno Mars, Janelle Monae, and Ester Dean. The music adds to the fun and excitement of the entire adventure.
Apart from the songs, the movie also features stunning visuals. The animators have done an excellent job of bringing the lush green forests, sandy beaches, and vibrant colors of Rio de Janeiro to life. The characters are designed in a way that makes them look even more colorful suitable for an animated movie.
Rio 2 also deals with important themes such as deforestation and the destruction of natural habitats. The plot revolves around stopping the destruction of the Amazon rainforest by loggers, and the consequences of destroying nature. The movie raises awareness about these issues and delivers a powerful message about conservation and the environment.
Overall, Rio 2 is a hilarious and charming movie that the whole family can enjoy. It is a great sequel to the first Rio movie, and the plot has enough twists and turns to keep the audience engaged. With excellent animation, engaging music, and colorful characters, Rio 2 is an entertaining adventure filled with laughter and heartfelt moments that is worth watching.
