The animated film Rio has recently come out in many different countries around the world. It is the latest film from Blue Sky Studios, which also made the Ice Age trilogy, and as in those three films, the main characters are talking animals – this time two macaws (a kind of parrot) called Blu and Jewel.

The story begins with Blu living in the house of his owner, Linda, who runs a bookshop in Minnesota in the north of the United States. Though born in Brazil, Blu was taken to the US by tropical bird smugglers when he was very young, and is comfortable in his quiet life with Linda. He is a rather anxious bird who doesn’t like new experiences very much and has never learned to fly. One day Linda meets a bird expert called Tulio who tells her that Blu is one of a very rare species. In fact, he is so rare that there is only one other macaw of the same kind anywhere in the world: a female called Jewel who lives in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Tulio persuades Linda to take Blu to Rio, because getting him to meet Jewel is the only way of stopping their species from becoming extinct.

The rest of the film tells the story of the relationship between Blu and Jewel (which doesn’t start well: she dislikes him at first) and the adventures they have in Rio, as well as the human relationship between Linda and Tulio.

At first, Blu finds Rio quite scary, but might his new experiences there change his personality? Could he even learn to fly? Blu again faces danger from bird smugglers, who capture him and Jewel, but the story is mostly very happy, with lots of jokes, music and dancing. Rio is also beautiful to look at, with many of the characters being colourful Brazilian birds (plus some other animals) and with the mountains, forests and beaches of Rio in the background.

As with many other animations in recent years, the voices of some of the characters, including Blu and Jewel, are those of famous actors and musicians. Blu’s voice is that of Jesse Eisenberg (who played Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, in The Social Network) and Jewel’s is that of Anne Hathaway (who has starred in films such as The Devil Wears Prada and Alice in Wonderland).
