It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they're hurtled from Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets his father-in-law.
Director Carlos Saldanha became interested in casting singer Bruno Mars in his first voice-over role, after seeing him on Saturday Night Live (1975). After working with Mars, he re-wrote his character to make him less "macho", and, after a recording session, had a segment reanimated to fit his singing.
No way! A bird bath!
Blu: Tiago, caref... Ah!
Technically, there no possible way for Blu's GPS to detect or recognize his voice since all it would hear will be bird squawks. However, the GPS could have had a pet translator built in, enabling it to translate bird speech to the necessary input that the GPS requires.
At the end of the credits, just like the original movie, two blue feathers are formed by the abstract shapes.
