A perfect day for Blu is making pancakes for Jewel and their 3 kids and plopping on the couch to watch a soccer game. But when it's discovered there might be more blue Macaws out there, Blu reluctantly agrees to go on a short trip to the Amazon to help find them. While the rest of his family happily embraces the adventure and wants to stay forever, Blu struggles to shed his creature comforts and realizes getting back to Rio is going to be harder than he thought.
Though she's content with Blu and the kids in Rio, Jewel is overjoyed to venture into the wild so that the whole family can finally shed their human conveniences and act like real wild birds. The trip turns out to be more than she could have ever hoped for when she's reunited with her long lost father. But it becomes clear that Blu is having trouble adapting to the wild, leaving Jewel torn between her desire to stay with her father in the Amazon and Blu's wish to go back to Rio.
Carla is the spunky eldest of the triplets of Blu and Jewel who'd rather be listening to her iPod than hanging with her family. Though she initially dreads the idea of a family vacation into the wild, she soon finds out her cool uncles, Nico and Pedro, are coming along to scout talent, and suddenly the trip has potential. Carla ultimately blossoms when she finds a way to help scout talent and judge the auditions.
Tiago is the youngest of the kids by three minutes, and the only boy. If something needs to be blown up or destroyed, he is the one to go to. Always up for adventure, Tiago quickly becomes right at home exploring the wild.
Bia is smart like her father, always with a book in hand and quick to spout facts and figures. But when she gets to the Amazon, she is inspired by its awe and wonder. For once, she puts down her books and experiences the colorful life around her.
When they hear Blu is headed to the Amazon, Nico and Pedro decide to join the trip to scout new talent for the upcoming Carnival. Their adventure becomes a South American Idol of sorts as these city birds audition a bevy of unique new animals (some with talent, some without), all who exhibit a wild jungle flair.
Always up for an adventure, especially when it involves getting a break from his family, Rafael is quick to join the trip to the Amazon once he realizes his buddy will probably need his help. As Blu grows concerned that he's not bird enough for Jewel, Raffie's simple advice, "happy wife, happy life" inspires Blu to try to embrace the wild and "bird up."
Though he's lost most of his feathers, wears an Elizabethan vest and now flies like a chicken, our favorite villainous cockatoo is back. We find him in an Amazonian marketplace where he has been relegated to plucking out fortunes for tourists. But an audience is an audience and Nigel takes the stage with Shakespearean flare. However, when he sees Blu and family fly overhead, Nigel finds a new reason to live – revenge on "the bluebirds of his unhappiness."
Luiz happily tries to help Nico and Pedro with their talent auditions in Rio. Unfortunately, he usually does more harm than good.
Mimi is Eduardo's funny, older sister and self- appointed advisor. While the Macaw tribe members respect and fear Eduardo and obey his every rule, Mimi is the only one brassy enough to challenge him and give him a piece of her mind. Mimi lovingly welcomes both Jewel and Blu with open arms and tries to smooth over the conflict between Blu and Eduardo. She reminds her headstrong brother that despite what he may think of his new son-in-law, he must accept the fact that Jewel is all grown up and has another man in her life.
Eduardo is the larger than life head of the blue Macaw tribe in the Amazon who is also revealed to be Jewel's father. Passionate about his bird culture and fiercely protective of his daughter, Eduardo proves to be a major comedic obstacle as Blu's intimidating father-in-law. When Eduardo meets Blu, an overly domesticated Macaw from Minnesota, he can't help but wonder, "How did this guy ever end up with my daughter?!" He tries to honor his daughter's wishes and welcome Blu into the family (well, sort of), but when his son-in-law's awkward attempts to fit in fail, Eduardo makes it clear he thinks Blu should shape up or ship out.
Jewel's childhood friend and the son Eduardo never had, Roberto is the Fabio of blue Macaws – a confident charismatic bird in every way, and the exact opposite of Blu. It seems as though there's nothing Roberto can't do. With an impressive wing span, he sings, dances and makes all the females swoon, making Blu feel incredibly inadequate.
Linda, the spunky gal from Minnesota, has settled into her new life in Rio with her buddy, Blu and new husband and colleague Tulio. When she and Tulio go deep into the Amazon to look for more blue macaws, she instead finds a danger that could threaten the whole jungle. Linda's quick-thinking and bravery will be just the tools she needs to overcome any challenges the duo might have in store.
Tulio, the quirky but brilliant ornithologist, continues his work researching and saving the birds of Brazil. His curiosity and enthusiasm reach new heights when he and his "loving wife and colleague" Linda travel to the Amazon and make the discovery of a lifetime – Blu and his family may not be the last of their kind!
Charlie is a mute giant anteater with a bowler hat whose black coloring makes it look like he's wearing a vest. He was forced to tap dance for tourists until Nigel freed him. He will do almost anything for ants (and red ants make him crazy). He becomes the silent muscle in Nigel's plot to find Blu and ruin his life.
Gabi is a tiny, pink, cute, but poisonous, dart frog who has been stuck in a jar in the marketplace, watching Nigel from afar with adoring eyes. She realizes it's a bit of a stretch for a frog to have feelings for a bird, especially since touching him would kill him, but she is thrilled to be join Nigel on his quest for revenge. She may be small, but her villainous heart is large.
