5 Fun Facts We Learned From RIO 2
Get ready to shake your tail feathers! Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment takes you deep into
the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest for the most fun you’ll have all summer, as RIO 2 debuts on 3D Blu-ray,
on July 15th. The cast of the animated hit comedy Rio returns — along with a new flock of all-star
voice talent, including Bruno Mars, Kristin Chenoweth, Andy Garcia and more — in this
high-flying sequel for the whole family. Rio 2 is entertaining, and just as educational. Although
Blu is originally against visiting the Amazon, he soon realizes all it has to offer! Here we will take
you through some fun facts and also, common misconceptions about the Amazon!
1. The Amazon covers A LOT of the earth’s surface. The Amazon in Brazil covers 3.5
million square kilometers out of the 6.5 million that is the entire Amazon.
2. Anteaters, like Charlie, have tongues that can be as long as two feet!
3. Another name for a Blue Macaw is a Spix’s Macaw.
4. More than two-thirds of the earth’s living species come from the rainforest.
5. Dart Frogs, like Gabi, can be very tiny. They are sometimes less than 1.5 cm.
