Rio 2

Posted: Updated:

Passport check. Dancing shoes check. Ticket to Rio, well I got a ticket to "Rio 2" the movie. Check out the cast of the 3D flick and they told Deco why they were on board for a sequel.

"Rio" is rocking again. Blu, Jewel and their pals are back in "Rio 2."

This time Blu and family discover they're not alone and set out to find more of their kind.

For Blu the city bird, the Amazon is a whole new world. But for Jewel it's a return home.

Anne Hathaway: "It was great coming back. In the first film Jewels was not in a happy place."

Anne Hathaway is back as Jewel, a gem in the flock.

Anne Hathaway: "In this film she found love and she's a mama and I think she loves being a mama. It was great to see her in a happy place, but still feisty and still powerful still herself."

Jamie Foxx and George Lopez are back as Nico and Rafael.

George Lopez: "You find out they are doing another one. Everyone came back that's a testament."

The birds are still musically minded and still up to no good.

JAMIE FOXX: "It's a bit of a different story. What I like about it is we move us to the Amazon, and when we go to the Amazon to find talent for a big show. We have out amazing idol and all these different."

Speaking of the new characters, Blu and his crew find a flock of birds and it's insta-family when they realize the leader of the pack is Jewel's dad, Eduardo, played by Andy Garcia.

Andy Garcia: "He calls it as he sees it. He is over protective and he takes great responsibility and pride in that I think. Just calls it as he sees it. He sees his daughter with a guy with a fanny pack who is a pet. That's not a good thing."

And adding some comic relief and some mischief, Kristen Chenoweth is Gabi, a poisonous frog who would leaps to new heights for Nigel the cockatoo played by Jermaine Clement.

Kristin Chenoweth: "It was exciting. It was because I wanted to make sure I was as good as everyone else,a he was so good in the first one and then I found out I was going to be with him. I don't think Gabi is evil. She would kill or poison."

The music in "Rio 2" will have you dancing in the theater. So grab your favorite feathered boa just make sure it's faux feathers.

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.
