In Rio 2 we meet a new character Gabi, voiced by Theatre legend Kristin Chenoweth ( "Wicked" "You're A Good Man Charlie Brown" TV and Flim)
Chenoweth is delightful and plays a pink love sick frog who has a giant crush on Nigel a Hamlet quoting evil devo who has a great number singing " I WILL SURVIVE"
The number is a film stealer. There is also another number where Gabi, Chenoweth sings a love song about their forbidden love. This film is rated G so you can take the kids but if you don't have children this film s a must for anyone who loves Chenoweth and Broadway musicals. It is fabulous. ( PS Nigel wants glitter on his outfit and I am afraid Nigel is gay.)
The film is splendid entertainment with beautiful animation and many glorious musical numbers. Pure, joy!
