Jewel and Blu journey to the Amazon in the 'Rio 2' trailer

I didn't see Rio. But my wife and son did, and of course they both loved it. The cast from Rio returns -- with some new, fancy additions -- in Rio 2

Rio 2 finds Jewel (Anne Hathaway), Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and their three kids leaving their domesticated life in that magical city of Rio for a journey to the Amazon. They encounter a menagerie of characters who are born to be wild, voiced by the likes of Andy Garcia, Rita Moreno, Kristin Chenoweth and Bruno Mars. Will Blu lose his family to the calls of the wild? Will he be able to overcome his most fearsome adversary of all -- his father-in-law? 

You can bet it's going to be a vibrant movie with tons of music that'll have your kids all singing. And you know one of those songs are going to be by Bruno Mars. Damn he's cool...

Rio 2 opens in theaters on April 11, 2014.
