'Rio 2' first trailer revealed

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Animation Scoop has the first trailer for Blue Sky StudiosRio 2, out next April. It’s anthro birds, birds, birds!

I just got through reviewing the coffee-table The Art of 'Epic' for Animation World Network. (My review should be posted in the next day or two.) In it, director Chris Wedge says that a major reason for Blue Sky to have made Epic is to evolve the studio away from hard-edged, bright computer graphics like in the Ice Age movies, Robots, and Rio. and develop a softer, more dense look, such as that needed for the realistic forest in Epic. It sure hasn’t taken them long to get back to the brightly-colored Rio!

Now Dan Sarto, my editor at Animation World Network, says that my review of "The Art of 'Epic'", will be posted next week, after the movie comes out. From what the book shows, "Epic" should be the first major release of 2013 to have an appreciable anthropomorphic cast: slug, snail, toad, caterpillar. ("Escape from Planet Earth" is not major.)
