A new international trailer for 20th Century Fox's upcoming 3-D CGI-animated feature, Rio, has just appeared online that contains never-before-seen footage from the movie, including scenes from a hilarious birds-versus-monkeys war. Directed by Brazil-born Carlos Saldanha, who previously directed all three of the Ice Age movies for Fox, Rio tells the story of Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg ), an extremely rare blue macaw living as a pet in Minnesota who travels to South America after learning that a female blue macaw (Anne Hathaway) has been discovered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Additionally, a new featurette has been released that offers a glimpse at the making of the music for Rio, with commentary from Jamie Foxx and Will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas.
Rio also includes the voice talents of Leslie Mann, George Lopez, Neal Patrick Harris, Jemaine Clement, Rodrigo Santoro and Brazilian bossa nova singer Bebel Gilberto.
