We are a family that loves watching movies! So when we were told to get ready for a south-of-the-border journey with the release of animated adventure Americano during a day at the San Diego Zoo we were thrilled! Americano tells the charming tale of a colorful Mexican parrot named Cuco who sets off on an adventure to defend his family. Available in both English and Spanish, the film features the voices of Rico Rodriguez, Kate Del Castillo, Cheech Marin, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, Golden Globe nominee Lisa Kudrow (Best Supporting Actress, Television, “Friends”), and Academy Award nominee Edward James Olmos (Best Supporting Actor, Stand and Deliver, 1988), in addition to radio personalities Don Cheto, El Mandril, and Argelia Atilano. All opinions are our own.
Cuco is a Mexican boy parrot that would rather imitate the crazy stunts of his TV parrot superhero, El Americano, than help with his chores at the family bird circus. Yet when a gang of bully birds threatens his ringmaster father and takes over the circus, Cuco sets off on a hilarious and perilous journey to Hollywood to enlist his hero in his fight, only to discover the true hero within himself.
So Much Fun!
During our adventurous day at the San Diego Zoo on behalf of Americano, we had the opportunity to hear from the filmmakers themselves about how much fun this film was to create! It was a fun day and it was great learning more about Americano.
