Rio 2 Blu-ray/DVD Combo Review

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!

The RIO 2 Blu-ray™ and DVD brings everything you loved from the first Rio, but with even more laughs, excitement and music! Not only will kids get nearly an hour and a half of bonus features on the RIO 2 Blu-ray™, but they’ll also get their groove on with two downloadable bonus songs from the RIO 2 soundtrack: “I Will Survive” and “Poisonous Love,” both performed by Gabi (Kristin Chenoweth) and Nigel (Jemaine Clement).  

My family was huge fans of the original movie, Rio. So when we were offered a chance to review Rio 2, I was more than excited to have this be our next movie for movie night. The entire family absolutely loved it. Not only was it nice seeing some of our old favorite characters back on the screen again, but we also loved meeting a few of the new characters that were introduced as well.

One of the best things about the Rio movies is the music. It was awesome getting to hear some of the new songs that they had in the movie and to see how catchy they would be with my kiddos. Not only was the movie awesome, but the hilarious humor in this movie did not let us down. It kept us all laughing and entertained from beginning to end. Definitely a movie for the entire family that would be perfect to watch this Summer. Rio 2 is now out on both DVD and Blu-ray. 
Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received a Rio 2 on blu-ray/dvd at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
