TOYS FROM THE MOVIE RIO: RIO PLUSH TOYS, FIGURES AND BOOKS, FEATURING BLU, JEWEL, LUIZ, PEDRO, MARMOSET AND NICO
I saw Rio with my two boys the day that it came out. It was a really funny movie and my favorite character was Luiz the Bulldog. His constant drool was really funny and actually made me laugh out loud. The Rio movie was Blue Sky studios sixth feature film and was a big hit in the box office. The main characters in the Rio movie are
- Blu the Macaw Parrot
- Jewel the Macaw Parrot
- Luiz the Bulldog
- Pedro the Red Crested Cardinal
- Marmoset the Monkey King
- Nico the Yellow Canary
The basic plot of the movie Rio is simple-- Blu is an extremely rare bird. He is the last known male of his species of Macaw. He lives in a bookstore in Minnesota. Scientists learn that another Macaw fron the same species was spotted in South America. Yes, this other Macaw is a female. Blu (who never learned to fly) needs to get to Rio de Janiero to meet his female counterpart to save their species.
