Fox has recently announced new additions to the star studded voice cast of their upcoming animated feature, Rio 2. The sequel to Carlos Saldanha’s hit 2011 CG feature is slated for an April 14, 2014 release and will feature the voices of original cast members Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jamie Fox and Will.i.am. They will be joined by newer additions such as Andy Garcia, Kirstin Chenoweth, Bruno Mars, and NBC news anchor Natalie Morales.

Rio 2 will be animated by Blue Sky Studios, and will follow Blu and Jewel, along with their three kids as they decide to raise their chicks in the Amazon as free birds, instead of trying to live life in a domesticated environment.

The movie will also pay special attention to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Rio next year. The music for the film will be performed by Grammy winner Janelle Monae, who will also voice a character.
