Rio Screening at London Zoo

Last Saturday we were invited to watch a special preview of Rio at London Zoo before it's released on DVD. The blurb about the film is described as:  From the makers of ICE AGE comes a high-flying animated comedy for the whole family. Blu is an exotic pet bird who believes he's the last of his kind. But when his owner learns about Jewel, Blu's female counterpart in Rio de Janeiro, they set out on the adventure of a lifetime. Even though he's never learned to fly, Blu befriends a group of wise-cracking city birds who help him find the courage to spread his wings and follow his destiny! It’s a lovely family film although the ‘bad bird’ is really quite scary!!!!

The DVD also lets you download 15 bonus levels of Angry Birds which are not available any where else.

We watched the film with some other lovely Mummy bloggers, where there was lovely food, face painting and free cuddly toys:

After the film we got to meet our very own Macaw:

Then we had some spare time to hit the zoo. The things that Chick wanted to see most were the chimps and she even wore a themed top:

And the Giraffes......such lovely, graceful animals....unlike myself and Chick. She also made friends with Kyd, Alice’s son and we spent a couple of hours chatting and wondering around the zoo together:

All in all a fabulous day.  Rio is released on DVD on the 24th of October. Fancy joining in the fun before then?? You can play the Monkey vs Birds game or Rio in a row :-)
