Carlos Saldanha (himself a resident of Rio) first came up with the concept in 1995. Originally, it was about a penguin washing up on the beaches of the Brazilian city but when he learned of the production of two penguin-related animation features - Happy Feet (2006) and Surf's Up (2007) - he was forced to radically rewrite his screenplay.

It's story of how love compels to break comfort zone and discover our new self. Visually stunning Rio is brilliant stroke of writers to add magic to adventures and love tale of endangered bird "Blu". Story wouldn't have been same with Samba, carnival, beaches, mountain views, Tram buses if it was not Rio.
The whole story revolves around Tamed Blu and wild Jewel. Jesse Eisenber and Anne Hathaway did their best voice acting. Apart from Blu and Jewel there are plenty of characters which build story effectively and added plenty of rib tickling moments.
Even though story is simple and very much predictable with obvious ending, still story survives to tell a tale of love despite differences. Brilliant animation in 3d will take you on Journey of adventure and fun!
A must watch for its animation!
