Rio on DVD and Blu-Ray 24th October 2011

The Mummy Matters family headed down to London on Saturday morning for a weekend of activities kicking of with a screening of the ultimate carnival family film Rio at London Zoo. To say that my children thought I was a star is an understatement!! We made our way to the Mappin Pavillion grabbed ourselves some of the lovely food on offer, Little Bean had her face painted and then we found our seats and settled down to watch the film.


From the maker’s of Ice Age comes this colourful, musical family film Rio which follows the adventures of Blu the exotic pet macaw who believes he is the last of his kind until his owner discovers a female macaw by the name of Jewel in Rio de Janeiro. Together they go in search of Jewel and enjoy lots of fun along the way. Blu has never learned to fly but when he meets a group of city birds they help him to find his courage and spread his wings.


Everyone loved the film and were really excited when one of the keepers from the Zoo brought in one of their macaws to say hello. The very clever macaw even gave us all a wave!! Once the screening was over we headed out into the Zoo to explore and find other animals.

Rio was a huge success on the big screen and is soon to be available to watch at home on Blu-Ray Triple Play, Blu-Ray and DVD courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox. You can find more songs, more dancing and more fun, not to mention a free download of 15 all-new exclusive levels of Angry Birds Rio which will buy you brownie points with most children!
