Rio/Rio 2 DVD
Directed by Carlos Saldanha
Double bill of children's animated features. 'Rio' (2011) is a comedy adventure featuring the voice talents of Jesse Eisenberg and Anne Hathaway.
Blu (voice of Eisenberg) is a rare macaw living in a bookshop in small-town Minnesota.
Believing himself to be the last of his kind, he is thrilled to hear that a female macaw of the same species has been spotted in South America.
Blu must now overcome his social ineptitude and fear of flying and set out for Rio de Janeiro to track down the feisty and independent Jewel (Hathaway) and try to win her heart.
In 'Rio 2' (2014), following their romantic escapades in the first film, Blu and Jewel are now happily married macaws with three children.
Adventure lies in wait for the fledgling family when they leave Rio de Janeiro for the wilds of the Amazon to visit relatives.
Not only does Jewel's estranged father Eduardo (Andy Garcia) intimidate Blu - who is already out of his comfort zone so far from the city - but Nigel (Jermaine Clement), his nemesis, returns with his heart set on revenge.
To complicate matters further, Blu and Jewel learn that the fragile habitat of the Amazon faces a grave threat.
Can the couple save the environment that nourishes the creatures they visit and cope with the many challenges thrown their way?
