This animated film features the voices of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, and Leslie Mann. Eisenberg voices Blu, a rare blue macaw who's forced to leave his cozy American home for Rio, to meet another macaw, Jewel (Hathaway) in the hopes that they'll hit it off and repopulate their species. When the two are kidnapped, the kids' film becomes a colorful adventure through an animated South America. DVD extras include a deleted scene, making-of featurettes, a jukebox, and music videos.
