A full trailer for "Rio 2" is now available, and it shows that the animated sequel is as sweet, mild-mannered, and gently amusing as the first movie.
Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway) pack up their kids to go live in the Amazon. "We're not people, we're birds. We have to get out into the wild and be birds, Blu!"
There, the fowl family is reunited with Jewel's dad (Andy Garcia) and the birds meet other denizens of the jungle, including a villainous Cockatoo (Jermaine Clement), a rapping cardinal (will.i.am), a poisonous tree frog (Kristin Chenoweth), and a drooling bulldog (Tracy Morgan).
It's clear from the trailer that "Rio 2" will be very family friendly, cute, and colorful. The "meet the parents" theme isn't original, but some of the gags in the trailer are charming.
"Rio 2" opens in theaters April 11, 2014.
