What better way to forget the misery of one of the most brutal winters in recent memory than with a trip to the tropical climes of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in Rio 2? 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have gotten the entire cast of the original movie back together for a trip into the wilds of the Amazon, where Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway) and their three kids discover that Jewel's long-lost father (Andy Garcia) is still alive and that Nigel the cockatoo (Jemaine Clement) won't rest until he has his revenge. In anticipation of the movie's release, Titan Books has offered Reelz an exclusive first look at The Art of Rio, a lavish book containing more than 300 pieces of concept art, character sketches, storyboards and digital paintings from Rio and the upcoming sequel, opening April 11th.
