Rio 2 DVD Giveaway and Free Printables

We all remember Rio - the lovely animated story about Blu, the Macaw who is captured by smugglers and taken to America. He's lucky and ends up in the hands of Linda, who loves him and cares for him, and eventually he meets Jewel, another rare Macaw, and his soulmate.

Rio 2 is out on DVD from next Monday August 4th. Rio 2 sees Blu happily living with Jewel and their 3 children - Carla, Bia and Tiago - when they discover the possibility of more rare Macaws in need of help, and set out to find them.

The Rio movies have a fantastic ecological message, the bad guys in this movie are illegal loggers, and looking after our wildlife and rainforests a major feature of the movie. They're caring films with heartwarming messages, and make great full family movies.

We've watched Rio 2 today, and it was great. My 4 and 5 year old boys really enjoyed it. There were a couple of belly laughs from the boys, and the movie held their attention throughout. It's beautifully animated and the characters are very likeable - well, except the mean characters!

The storyline is easy to follow and the fact that Blu really has no idea of how to survive in the rainforest is very funny. There aren't many birds carrying around a stash of equipment including lip salve and a GPS!
