Blue Sky Studios' Rio spreads wings during Super Bowl XLV

Super Bowl XLV would not have been complete without an updated teaser of Blue Sky Studios and 20th Century Fox’s April 15th film, Rio. Blu (voiced by Jesse Eisenberg) is a nerdy, cowardly, shy blue macaw, living at a bookstore in Moose Lake, Minnesota. …at least until scientists learn that this endangered species has a potential mate in South America. It’s there, in Rio de Janeiro, that Blu meets Jewel (voiced by Anne Hathaway — the soon-to-be Catwoman Selina Kyle) the only female blue macaw left. Unfortunately, the process of love isn’t as easy as the scientists would believe, and Blu must overcome his fears to win Jewel’s heart. Rafael the toucan (voiced by George Lopez) does his best to help things along, while Nigel the cockatoo (voiced by Jemaine Clement) does his best to prevent the situation, and bring every bird back to his poacher masters.

From the creators of Ice Age: A bird who never learned to fly will discover a place where he can soar! In Rio, the music never stops – and the comedy never ends.
