Rio 2 Blu-ray Review + Exclusive Clip - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jul 10, 2014

Get ready to shake your tail feathers! Rio 2 is now available on Blu-ray & DVD! Check out Kidzworlds review to get all the details on the hilarious family adventure!

The cast of the animated hit comedy Rio returns — along with a new flock of all-star voice talent, including Bruno Mars, Kristin Chenoweth, Andy Garcia and more — in this high-flying sequel for the whole family. The party continues when Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their three kids take a walk on the wild side and embark on a colorful, comical, music-filled journey through the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit into his new surroundings, he goes beak-to-beak with the villainous Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all: his father-in-law!

Exclusive Clip

This clip features Blu, Jewel, and Nico performing Janelle Monae's hit song "What Is Love" at their New Year's Eve party in Rio. The clip also features a dance machine that shows you how to shake a tail-feather, just like your favorite feathered friends.

 

The Bottom Line

Rio 2 may not have swept people away at the box office when it was released in theaters, but the sheer amount of extras featured on the Blu-ray totally knocked our socks off.  Rio 2 follows our favorite family of blue birds as they leave domestic life in Rio de Janeiro and head into the jungle to get back to nature, and their wild heritage. Rio 2 has family-friendly written all over it, and if you and your family love to sing-along, then the Special Features will have you belting out the movies' tunes while shaking your tailfeather. We loved Janelle Monae's "What is Love" music video, as well as the extras on the Barbatuques (it doesn't get much more Brazilian than that! You'll feel as if you've gone on vacation to Rio de Janeiro!) All the extras on this blu-ray make it a fun addition to your collection of summer movies.
