From the creators of the hit Ice Age, the ultimate carnival party for families comes home on 24th October 2011 when Rio is released on Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Following its big screen success Rio on Blu-ray and DVD features more songs, dancing, and fun as well as a free download of 15 all-new exclusive, levels of "Angry Birds RIO". The scope and grandeur of this colorful animated feature can also be experienced in 3D at home - only on BD.
Blu is a domesticated Macaw who never learned to fly, and enjoys a comfortable life with his owner and best friend Linda in the small town of Moose Lake, Minnesota. Blu and Linda think he's the last of his kind, but when they learn about another macaw who lives in Rio de Janeiro, they head to the faraway and exotic land to find Jewel, Blu's female counterpart. Not long after they arrive, Blu and Jewel are kidnapped by a group of bungling animal smugglers. Blu escapes, aided by the street smart Jewel and a group of wisecracking and smooth-talking city birds. Now, with his new friends by his side, Blu will have to find the courage to learn to fly, thwart the kidnappers who are hot on their trail, and return to Linda, the best friend a bird ever had.
Families will flock to the Blu-ray of this high-flying animated comedy that follows the grand adventure of two exotic macaws -- Blu and Jewel -- whose journey plays out through the colour, music, and emotion of Rio. With an extensive selection of special features worthy of a Carnival-style celebration the Blu-ray, guided by Blu himself, leads viewers inside the world of RIO on film as well as the actual city. Go behind the sounds of Rio with music legends Sergio Mendes and Will.i.am; dance the samba alongside the film's characters; get to know the amazing landmarks highlighted in the film; and explore the city of Rio de Janeiro with Carlos Saldanha.
