Talbert, III, CDME, President & CEO of the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau. “The exciting cultural vibrancy portrayed in Rio 2 mirrors the welcoming multicultural fabric and flavor of Miami, which is a top attraction for our visitors of all ages from around the globe.”

“Rio 2” tells the story of Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they’re hurtled from that magical city to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel (Clement), and meets the most fearsome adversary of all – his father-in-law.
