Not to be outdone by Dreamworks, 20th Century Fox has debuted the first trailer for its own upcoming animated adventure Rio.

The film centres around a macaw who embarks on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from a zoo in Minnesota, after learning  that there is a female macaw waiting there for a mate. Unfortunately for him though she doesn’t seem to keen, and all sorts of awkwardness ensues.

The film is being made by Ice Age creators Blue Sky, based off a script by Don Rhymer (the writer behind Surf’s Up and Big Momma’s House).  It also features an impressive voice cast with Neil Patrick Harris, Anne Hathaway, and George Lopez all providing their own unique talents.

It has got potential, and it also has 11 months to enter the subconscious before its expected April, 2011 release.
