Get ready to shake your tail feathers and dive deep into the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest for the most fun you’ll have all summer, as RIO 2 debuts on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and DVD July 15. Just in time for summer vacation, or that long road trip, this movie will samba its way into your home with exciting bonus features and extras everyone will enjoy. 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!
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). For even more fun, every Blu-ray comes with 15 exclusive levels for Angry Birds Rio and Music Machine Sing-Along and Dance-Along songs for a whole family party! There’s also Janelle Monáe’s “What is Love” lyric video, a deleted scene, character auditions and much more! Not only is the music in Rio 2 catchy and fun, it also teaches some wonderful messages! To prepare you for this awesome film, and soundtrack, take a look at this list of the best lessons that some of the songs can teach us!
- 1. “What’s a song if you can’t hear it too? Can’t imagine dancing without you.” (What Is Love?)
- 2. “You’ve got to stand tall, even when you’re small. You’ve got to sing loud, when they tell you not to talk. You need to believe that you were born to be free. You’ve got to let go of all your fear, cuz’ it’s a Jungle Out Here” (It’s A Jungle Out Here)
- 3. “If you try to keep me down I’ll just come back stronger If you try to cut me short I’ll just come back longer If you beat me at ping pong I’ll just play ping ponger Give me my throne,I am ready to thrive one thing I know….I will survive! (I Will Survive)
- 4. Let’s celebrate,for we are beautiful creatures. Come spread your wings, dance and sing songs about freedom.” (Beautiful Creatures)
- 5. Vou levar alegria. Junto carrego o amor. Dia de festa. Salve a floresta!” (Fave de Me) Which translates to: ”I come bringing joy. Along, I come carrying love. Party day. Save the forest.”
