‘Rio’ press day

Twentieth Century Fox had a press day to promote their upcoming movie Rio which of course features Anne as the voice of Jewel. I’ve added a small batch of MQ images to the gallery with more to come soon (hopefully in HQ as well).

Edit: All but two of the previously added MQ photos have been replaced with HQ versions. In addition, over 50 new HQ and over 60 new MQ photos have been added. (Make sure you refresh your screen as most of the first 14 MQ images have been replaced with different photos).

Chris Jenkins (“Surf’s Up”) and Bruce Anderson (“Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!”) are producing.

Hathaway and Harris have done animation before. Hathaway voiced the lead role of Red in the Weinstein Co. release “Hoodwinked!” in 2005, and Harris voiced a character in Sony Pictures Animation’s “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.”

Fox would not confirm casting. Continue reading
