"Rio" (movie) comes from the creators of the hit "Ice Age" series and is a 3D comedy adventure about taking a walk on the wild side. Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, and enjoys a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he's the last of his kind, but when they learn about another macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu's female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. Blu escapes, aided by the street smart Jewel and a group of wisecracking and smooth-talking city birds. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.

"Rio," a movie from Blue Sky Studios and Twentieth Century Fox Animation, is the biggest, most ambitious animated film for the studios. It is rich with scope and grandeur, and alive with character, color, music, emotion and fun. The story unfolds amidst a colorful jungle, a beach paradise, a sprawling metropolis – and the celebration to end all celebrations, known as Carnaval. "Rio" is more than a point on a map; it's a magical place, a state of mind, and an attitude.

Twentieth Century Fox's "Rio" is directed by Carlos Saldanha and stars the voices of Anne Hathaway, Leslie Mann, Jesse Eisenberg, Jemaine Clement, Tracy Morgan, will.i.am, Rodrigo Santoro and Jamie Foxx. The producers are Bruce Anderson and John C. Donkin. Music is by John Powell and cinematography is by Renato Falcåo.
