Rio tells the story of a rare macaw named Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg ) who discovers that a female macaw (Anne Hathaway) of his species has been found in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and ventures forth from his comfortable life as a pet in Minnesota in search of her in the hopes that she will be his mate.
Rio was directed by Brazilian-born Carlos Saldanha, director of all three of the Ice Age movies for Fox. Additional voice talents include
George Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Neal Patrick Harris, Jemaine Clement and Rodrigo Santoro.
