(This is coming a little late as it is from my column in St. Anthony Messenger, June 2012. Subscribers received the magazine about 10 days ago):
Blu (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jewel (Anne Hathaway), rare blue macaws, have settled down in Rio de Janeiro with their three kids, Carla (Rachel Crow), Bia (Amandla Stenberg), and Tiago (Pierce Gagnon). They perch on the extended arms of the statue of Christ that overlooks the bay. Blu’s former owner, Linda (Leslie Mann), is now married to Tulio (Rodrigo Santoro), an ornithologist. They are traveling to the Amazon rain forest searching for more blue macaws to save them from destruction.
Blu and Jewel decide to take the kids and help Linda and Tulio. Blu is reluctant because he likes the safety of home, but he loads a fanny pack with a GPS and they take off with some of their animal friends in tow.
