Rio

NZ release date:
7 April 2011

Directed by:
Carlos Saldanha

Starring
Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Jamie Foxx, Neil Patrick Harris

When Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams.

The creators (also responsible for the immensely successful Ice Age series) have really called on a lot of star power for this animated film - expect some great one-liners from the likes of Jane Lynch and Jaime Foxx.
