My children really wanted to go see the animated movie RIO 2 at the movie theater but unfortunately we just weren't able to get out to see it.  So they are excited that the movie is coming out on Blu-ray and DVD on July 15,2014.  The last few days they've been getting really excited about seeing the movie when it comes out on home video!

We've been having some fun while waiting for the RIO 2 Blu-ray/DVD release by enjoying some of the soccer activity sheets Fox Home Entertainment has provided while we've been tuned in to the big futbol tournament going on in Brazil [CLICK HERE TO CHECK THEM OUT - HAVE SOME SOCCER FUN WITH THE CHARACTERS FROM RIO 2] and demonstrating our creative and artistic sides with some coloring pages based on the movie. I've included these free coloring pages at the bottom of this post so everyone can enjoy them.

In this sequel, the RIO adventure continues when Blu, Jewel and their three kids take a walk on the wild side and embark on a colorful, comical, music-filled journey through the Amazon.  As Blu tries to fit into his new surroundings, he goes beak-to-beak with the villainous Nigel and meets the most fearsome adversary of all ... his FATHER-IN-LAW!!!

In addition to a great family movie, RIO 2 on Blu-ray  provides loads of extra bonus features plus 2 downloadable bonus songs from the movie's soundtrack:  "I Will Survive" and "Poisonous Love" both performed by Gabi (Kristin Chenoweth) and Nigel (Jemaine Clement).  The DVD also has some bonus features but not as many as the Blu-ray.  The Blu-ray is also available in 3D though that version is not included with our giveaway promotion.


I hope everyone enjoys these coloring sheets and adds RIO 2 to their home theater library...this is really a great family movie for adults and children to enjoy together.
