Quote "I know where your birds are!"


Fernando is a young Brazilian orphan boy (adopted by Tulio and Linda later on) who initially worked for the smugglers, but later helped Linda and Tulio find Blu and Jewel.

Bio

Rio

After being let into Tulio's aviary by Nigel, Fernando captures Blu and Jewel and brings them to Marcel. He is only paid half of what he was promised, and later overhears that the smugglers don't care about what happens to their captives, this starts to make Fernando feel guilty. When Fernando sees a "lost" poster of Blu the next morning, his guilt finally gets to him about taking Blu and Jewel, and he goes back to the aviary, telling Linda and Tulio that he knows where Blu and Jewel are.

When they reach the smugglers' hideout and discover the birds are already gone, Fernando admits his part in stealing Blu and Jewel. While Linda and Tulio hide, Fernando manages to learn the Smugglers' plan: to use the Carnival parade as a means of escaping with their birds. While Fernando goes with the smugglers, Linda and Tulio also go to infiltrate Carnival.

When Blu and Jewel are recaptured, Fernando attempts to free them, but is caught out by Nigel and Marcel. Marcel drags Fernando away, but he manages to escape after he bites Marcel's hand. Tulio and Linda arrive too late to stop the smugglers from leaving the airstrip, and all three think they have failed. However, some time later, Fernando spots Blu returning with an injured Jewel.

After Jewel's wing is healed, and she and Blu are released into the wild, Fernando is shown to be a volunteer at the Blu Bird Sanctuary along with Linda and Tulio.

Over the end credits, several photos show that Fernando, Linda and Tulio have come together as a family of sorts, and Linda and Tulio later adopt him.

Rio 2

In Rio 2, he makes a very brief appearance. Now older (16 years old, according to the Junior Novel and The Art of Rio: Featuring a Carnival of Art From Rio and Rio 2), he takes care of the Blu Bird Sanctuary while his parents go out to the Amazon to do research on the avian fauna. He is briefly seen calling out a greeting to Jewel, who squawks in reply.

Rio: Snakes Alive!

Fernando makes a brief appearance in the graphic novel Rio: Snakes Alive! He is seen in the Blu Bird Sanctuary, playing a handheld game console while Linda gives Blu some waffles.

Appearance

Fernando is a 12-year-old in the first movie, and a 16-year-old in the second movie. He is a Brazilian boy, who has black hair and hazel colored eyes. He wears a yellow tank top with green outline.

Personality

Fernando is a kind-hearted boy. He was only working for the smugglers so he would get paid. He apologized to Blu and Jewel when he hung up their cage amongst the other birds, and even inquired as to their fate afterwards. He would later attempt to set them free when the smugglers were loading them on the plane.

Fernando is also quite streetsmart, able to quickly trade Tulio's Jeep for a motorcycle, showing a level of trade savviness.

  • In the search for Blu and Jewel, he traded Tulio's Jeep for a motorcycle.

  • Fernando's real parents' identities were never revealed in the movie.
  • Fernando is one of the few Blue Sky characters to be anti-heroes.
  • Although he's just barely seen in Rio 2, he was previously meant to be the one to find the Spix's Macaw feather in the jungle as shown in the deleted scene.
  • When Fernando became Tulio and Linda's adoptive son, its unknown if he took the last name "Monteiro" or "Gunderson."
