This cheerful animated film aimed at children is filled with color and movement. The main character is Blu (voice of Jesse Eisenberg), a rare blue macaw raised in captivity in Minnesota.

But soon smugglers are after them, and Blu and Jewel must go on the lam. The chase leads to Rio de Janeiro with its beaches, favelas and Carnaval. Other celebrity voices heard include Jamie Foxx, will.i.am, George Lopez and Tracy Morgan. The lively music was overseen by Sérgio Mendes.
