20th Century Fox sent us the new Rio 2 Sing-along Blu-ray. It’s awesome. As you can guess, this new release displays the lyrics during the singing scenes. My two youngest kids love singing along with the characters. My nine-year old daughter sings along by reading the lyrics. My five-year old son, on the other hand, can’t read fast enough. So he sings along by listening to the movie and his sister. They are pretty cute when they sing along to the tunes. If you have not purchase a copy of Rio 2 yet, you should get the sing-along version. It includes the regular movie plus the sing-along version of the animated film. Rio 2 Sing-Along is available now on DVD and Blu-ray. Rio 2 features the voices of Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, and George Lopez.

The kids and I saw Rio 2 last weekend. We enjoyed the film, and I really like the tunes in the movie. They had a great beat. In this sequel, Blu and Jewel head into the jungle to look for other blue macaws. Jewell grew up in the forest, so she’s quite at home in the wild. Blu, on the other hand, grew up in a house so he’s like a city boy in the jungle. For instance, Blu insists on wearing a fanny pack and navigating via gps. Funny bird. Rio 2 (20th Century Fox) opens in theaters today. Continue reading to learn six things about Rio 2.
