Andy Garcia, Kristin Chenoweth and singer Bruno Mars will lend their voices to 20th Century Fox’s “Rio 2″, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The trio join returning cast members Anne Hathaway, Jesse Eisenberg, Jamie Foxx and wil.i.am in the sequel to the 2011 family animated film.

Rio 2 will follow Blu (Eisenberg), a neurotic blue macaw, and Jewell (Hathaway), his free-spirited mate, as well as their three kids. The conflict of the film arises when Jewel expresses her desire to raise the chicks in the Amazon as “real birds” rather than in their current domesticated environment.

Carlos Saldanha returns to direct the sequel, which will apparently feature a subplot involving next year’s FIFA World Cup.
