Blu, the feathered star of the movie RIO, has made a flying visit to the UK and flown over various locations throughout the country.

Rio has landed in Bristol, Stonehenge, the Severn Bridge and Oxford ahead of his movie release.

RIO is a 3D motion picture event from Blue Sky Studios, the makers of “Ice Age” and one of the most successful producers of animated feature films in the world.

The comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota for the exotic wonders of Rio de Janeiro.

But Blu’s new life and adventures in Rio are complicated by the fact that he can’t fly. Lucky for Blu, his new menagerie of friends are ready to help him find his inner-hero – and teach him what it really means to soar.
