Everything you need to know about “Rio 3” release
Animation studios have focused on producing more diverse and inclusive programming in recent years. “Mulan” and “Lilo and Stitch,” while we grew up with them, were distinctly more insular efforts that eventually fizzled out.
Studios were cautious about generating inclusive work until early, around the turn of the decade. Blue Sky Studios’ wildly entertaining adventure flick “Rio” was a solid step forward for the company.
Director Carlos Saldanha keeps bringing us animated classics we’ve appreciated over the years, from Ice Age to Ferdinand. With “Rio,” Saldanha takes us closer to home, telling the story of Blu, a domesticated blue macaw, and his adventures in the colourful city of Rio de Janeiro.
As a result, “Rio” is a love story about two endangered animals while celebrating Brazil’s rainbow culture.
Rio is distinctive because it addresses a fundamental problem: the extinction of blue macaws, a long-term threat. Whether it was Saldanha’s intention or not, the franchise will serve as a constant reminder of these beautiful animals.
Currently, “Rio” has two parts. The sequel was not released until a few months before the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Rio de Janeiro. Some fans hope that “Rio” will eventually turn into a full-fledged series.
We can be glad that the chance to continue Blu and Jewel’s adventure series remains open, as Saldanha and the cast have expressed interest in doing so. “Rio 3” is only a matter of time. These are the results we have achieved so far. 3 Rio de Janeiro.
As a child, Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) is removed from his home in Brazil by Linda, a young girl who takes care of him for the rest of his life.
Naturalist Tulio invites Jewel (Anne Hathaway), Blu and his friends to Rio to save the blue macaw species from extinction by mating with the last known female blue macaw.
When two birds are smuggled into Brazil, they embark on a hilarious and thrilling odyssey.
The first part of the movie ends with the two birds raising a brood of three in the jungle, and the second part picks up where the first left off, following the family on a trip to find more blue macaws in the Amazon, who turn out to be Jewel’s long-lost farming family.
It ends with the family deciding to stay in the Amazon but visit Rio in the summer.
We can only guess about the plot of “Rio 3” as there is no reliable material to rely on. In the first few pages of the third edition, we get a glimpse of the family’s existence in the Amazon with the rest of the flock.
Given the franchise’s name, it’s reasonable to assume that a family vacation in Rio de Janeiro all summer will play a role in the plot. It would be fascinating and timely if the next instalment somehow addressed the recent tragic extinction of this species.
Maybe that’s why Blu and Jewel decided to go on another mission to save their species with their friends and family’s help and support.
In a conference with Cinema Blend, the “Rio 2” cast discussed what they hoped to see in the film’s third instalment.
Jamie Foxx, who plays Nico, said yes when asked if he wanted to see the family go on an adventure to Miami, while Andy Garcia, who plays Eduardo, said no.
Based on the previous two films’ plots and what the actors say, we can expect “Rio 3” to be another thrilling adventure for the whole family.
Since the continuation has not been considered in recent years, we know it is not being worked on.
We can expect “Rio 3” to be released soon if Saldanha is interested in developing it as he has worked on sequels before.
Given Saldanha’s recent work on “Ferdinand,” we should expect to hear more about his following projects soon.
As a result, we should predict the release of “Rio 3” sometime in 2022 or later. For those who can’t wait that long, we have great news. A Nico and Pedro spinoff “Rio” is now in development for Disney Plus.
