For our grandparents, Donald Duck's big-screen exploits were a carefree pleasure. Nowadays it seems, the wacky escapades of animated creatures must be predicated on an eco-sermon. Animals United brought our children up to speed on biodiversity. Now, Rio confronts that topic's cutting edge: extinction. The hero, Blu, and the heroine, Jewel, are the last surviving specimens of the Blue Macaw. Unless they can mate successfully, their species will die out.
TigerStar's Past chapter one
The Spix's macaw achieved onscreen fame in 20th Century Fox's "Rio" as a charming parrot named Blu who travels thousands of miles in an attempt to save his species.
