Rio 2 Blu-ray Review...

Get ready to shake your tail feathers! My family is so excited that RIO is out on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD July 15! Just in time for summer vacation, this “hilarious family adventure” (Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview) will samba its way into your home with exciting bonus features and extras everyone will enjoy.

The cast of the animated hit comedy Rio returns — along with a new flock of all-star voice talent, including Bruno Mars, Kristin Chenoweth, Andy Garcia and more — in this high-flying sequel for the whole family. The party continues when Blu (Oscar® nominee Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Oscar® winner Anne Hathaway) and their three kids take a walk on the wild side and embark on a colorful, comical, music-filled journey through the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit into his new surroundings, he goes beak-to-beak with the villainous Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all: his father-in-law!

The RIO 2 Blu-ray™ and DVD brings everything you loved from the first Rio, but with even more laughs, excitement and music! Not only will kids get nearly an hour and a half of bonus features on the RIO 2 Blu-ray™, but they’ll also get their groove on with two downloadable bonus songs from the RIO 2 soundtrack: “I Will Survive” and “Poisonous Love,” both performed by Gabi (Kristin Chenoweth) and Nigel (Jemaine Clement). For even more fun, every Blu-ray™ comes with 15 exclusive levels for Angry Birds Rio™ and Music Machine Sing-Along and Dance-Along songs for a whole family party! There’s also Janelle Monáe’s “What is Love” lyric video, a deleted scene, character auditions and much more!

Our Review:

We loved the first Rio movie so we had to get Rio 2 when it came out! This one didn't disappoint either. We love all of the music and singing. It made us want to get up and dance. :) Blu is such a fun character to watch. I felt bad when all he wanted to do is fit in with all the other blue birds in the Amazon, but he kept messing up, so they didn't like him. When he played soccer with them in the pit of doom, he scored the winning goal, but then noticed he scored in the wrong goal. So he ended up winning the game for the other team.

The frog that's in love with Nigel was soooo funny. She thought she was poisonous and couldn't touch him, but in the end found out she wasn't, so she starts kissing him all over. We loved how Blu came through in the end and led all the birds to victory against the bad humans that wanted to destroy the Amazon. This is a good movie that the whole family will love!

Don't forget to check out all of the special features. My favorite is Bird and Beats: The singing talents of Rio 2. There is also a deleted scene, Rio refresher, you be the judge auditions and much more.
