With Pixar canceling plans for Newt--the studio's animated story of the last remaining pair of rare newts, who hate each other but must mate to repopulate the species--you probably thought you were just going to have to settle for Alpha and Omega's very similar but far more poorly-animated version of that story. Not the case! 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have made their own they'll-never-get-along!-oops-they're-in-love rom-com with Rio, the story of the last remaining pair of rare macaws, who hate each other but must mate to repopulate the species.

You know, it was pretty annoying how the Alpha and Omega superfluously crammed "Hungry Like the Wolf" into its trailer, but somehow the lack of "Rio" in this almost seems more insulting. Like you're above Duran Duran, Rio?
