20the Century Fox has released the full theatrical trailer for the animated sequel Rio 2. Directed by Carlos Saldanha, the follow-up finds Blu (Jesse Eisenberg), Jewel (Anne Hathaway), and their three kids leaving a domesticated life in the city for a journey into the Amazon, where they encounter a number of colorful characters including Anne’s father (Andy Garcia). The film looks to put a spin on the “meet the parents” premise, but having not seen the first pic I can’t really judge how this appears to stack up to the original. Regardless, the final gag in this trailer is pretty good.
Hit the jump to watch the full trailer. The film also features the voices of will.i.am, Jemaine Clement, Tracy Morgan, George Lopez, Leslie Mann, Rodrigo Santoro, Jamie Foxx, Rita Moreno, Bruno Mars, and Kristin Chenoweth. Rio 2 opens in 3D on April 11, 2014.
