My mouth fell open when I received this invite because my boys were able to join me 🙂

Atlanta-based recording artist Janelle Monáe joined animation director Carlos Saldanha for a special red carpet presentation of 20th Century Fox’s RIO 2 in Atlanta.  It was great to see all of the colorful Rio dancers and all of their feathers.  🙂

After the carpet I was able to sit with my family and enjoy this adorable feature! The first song in the movie was AMAZING!!  Monae’s hit “What is Love” from Atlantic Record’s RIO 2 soundtrack brought so much fun & spunk making it the perfect introduction to the film.  The kiddies were dancing and trying to sing along. LOL!

The Story

It’s a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids in RIO 2, after they’re hurtled from that magical city to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all – his father-in-law.  All our favorite RIO characters are back, and they’re joined by Oscar® nominee Andy Garcia, Grammy® winner Bruno Mars, Tony® winner Kristin Chenoweth and Oscar/Emmy®/Tony winner Rita Moreno.  RIO 2 also features new Brazilian artists and original music by Janelle Monae and Wondaland.

This is a MUST SEE.  Rio 2 will be in theatres April 11th!!
