Everybody knows that the bird is the word in this fun-filled animated adventure! The critter in question is Blu, a flight-challenged macaw living as the loyal pet to his equally nerdy owner. Learning that he may be the last male of his kind, Blu heads to Rio de Janeiro to mate with a female macaw named Jewel-and begins the adventure of a lifetime. Snatched by devious bird smugglers, Blu must put aside his fears and spread his wings as he and Jewel make a courageous escape with the villains hot on their trail.
Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jemaine Clement, Leslie Mann, George Lopez and Jamie Foxx head up the superb voice cast in this family-friendly tale. Directed by Carlos Saldanha; screenplay by Don Rhymer and Joshua Sternin & Jeffrey Ventimilia and Sam Harper.
