Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg bringing animated film Rio to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Fox Home Entertainment has announced that the colorful animated film RIO, from director Carlos Saldanha and featuring the voice talents of Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, Leslie Mann, Wanda Sykes, Jane Lynch, Jemaine Clement, George Lopez and Jamie Foxx, will be released on Blu-ray in a BD/DVD/Digital Copy “Party Edition” on August 2, 2011. The film follows Blu, a domesticated macaw from a small-town in Minnesota who, when kidnapped, meets up with Jewel, an independent bird that takes him on an adventure of a lifetime.

RIO received very positive reviews and grossed over $136 million worldwide, which is pretty spectacular for an animated film not put out by Pixar. Supposedly a great kid and adult film, this will probably be a good one to add to your collection.
