Rio 2 The Movie #RioMovie

by mitzimsa on April 10, 2014


It’s time to take flight! Rio 2 April 11.  Since I’ve never had the pleasure to travel to Rio, I can only image the sights and sounds. When I listen to the soundtracks from Rio and Rio 2 (John Powell and Sergio Mendes Soundtrack Producers) they transforms my thoughts to Carnival. All my life, I’ve thought of Carnival as Rio!

Rio 2 Blu & Family







One of the beautiful things about working at 20th Century Fox Film Music Division…is music itself!  I’ve been exposed to many different artist and their music. In Rio/Rio2 the (Director) Carlos Saldanha introduced us to the different sounds and rhythms of Brazil, that Bossa Nova & Samba sound. In order for the sound to stay true the artist were brought from Brazil to the Los Angeles to create the music I call it the “Rio Movie Sound”.


I’ve had the Rio2 soundtrack for a few weeks now, I can truly say that the songs tell a story, I feel like I’m on the journey to the Amazon along with the characters. That’s what I call getting lost in the music and sound, add the amazing picture and your there!


I was so excited to be reacquainted with Blu, Jewel and the rest of the gang from Rio, as well as the introduction of the new characters.  But, most of all I couldn’t wait to meet those three wonderful little chicks of Blu & Jewel.


Grab your kid (s) or just grab a seat at your nearest theater, animation is not just for kids anymore.  The big boys and girls of the academy have shown us over the last few years that animation is great entertainment for everyone and Rio 2 lives up to just that. There’s only one thing left to say ‘O’Vida, Oh Life’ meaning Let’s Go On A Journey!  See ya at the movies!
