Blu-ray Release: Rio 2
Today, 20th Century Fox is releasing Rio 2 on Blu-ray & DVD. Continuing the charming adventures of Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway), this is a harmless and entertaining enough animated sequel that kids are going to love. We reviewed Rio 2 when the film was in theatres back in April, and our overall consensus was:
“Although Rio 2 isn’t as fresh as the wonderful first film, this is still a cute and brightly animated sequel that family audiences are sure to enjoy, with appealing characters and a good environmental message for those of all ages. *** (out of 4)”
The Blu-ray includes a deleted scene, several featurettes, a lyric video for the catchy Janelle Monae song “What is Love,” and the Almost Home teaser short.
Rio 2 is 101 minutes and rated G.
