The teaser trailer for Rio, the new film from Blue Sky (they made the Ice Age movies), has gone online. The 3D animated film is a comedy-adventure-love story between two rare macaws (voiced by Neil Patrick Harris and Anne Hathaway). The film is set in Rio de Janeiro. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for City of God references.

Here’s the synopsis for Rio:
‘Rio’ is a 3-D animation feature from the makers of the ‘Ice Age’ films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there’s another — and that she’s a she — he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it’s far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life’s many wonders. ‘Rio’ brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance.
