Quote "I knew you were coming back — I saw it in the droppings."


Mimi is a female Spix's Macaw. She's Eduardo's older sister, Jewel's aunt, and Bia, Carla, and Tiago's great-aunt. She is the self-appointed adviser of the Spix's Macaw clan.

Mimi is described as being funny, brassy, and not afraid to speak her mind against Eduardo, and she welcomes Blu and Jewel into the group with open wings.

Bio

Mimi is first seen relaxing, with fruit slices covering her eyes and a face-mask on, but then she sits up upon hearing that her niece, Jewel, has returned. She enthusiastically welcomes Jewel, hugging her and affectionately calling her "wild flower." She then notices Bia, Carla, and Tiago, and rushes to hug them. The kids, a little frightened, fly away, and she accidentally hugs Blu, remarking that he is big for his age. Jewel and Eduardo correct her mistake, and she admires Blu's name, as it is the name of their species. As Eduardo and Roberto amusingly bicker over which one of them is "the bird," Mimi settles it by telling them they are both "the bird." Mimi then kicks off "Beautiful Creatures" by twanging a twig, and is seen dancing with her family and the rest of the tribe as they welcome Jewel back.

The next morning, Bia gives Blu some clay, telling him that Mimi says it is good for digestion. Mimi is at the soccer match between the blue and red macaw tribes, cheering the team on. She shows disappointment when Blu accidentally causes the team to loose the game, flying away with the rest of the disappointed tribe. Mimi joins the tribe in attacking the loggers, and as Roberto panics, she slaps him, telling him to "get a grip."

Mimi then joins in the celebrations afterwards, dancing with the tribe and her family.

Personality

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 wings 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.

Mimi is sassy, kind and very cheerful. She is accepting and welcoming, and smooths arguments and tension. She loves her family and friends, no matter what they may do wrong, and is friendly toward others.

Appearance

Mimi is short, shorter than her younger brother. She is plump, and similar in colouration to her niece, although Jewel's feathers are a brighter blue. She has darker blue wings, tail and head. Mimi has a cluster of feathers on her head like most macaws; they are long and curled. Her eyes are a pale blue, and her beak and talons are pale gray. Her eyelids have a lavender tint, and her face and front are lighter than the rest of her. Mimi has a pear-shaped body.

Relationships

Eduardo

Mimi loves her younger brother, but is the opposite of him when it comes to personality. She also reminds him that he must accept his son-in-law. She smooths the conflict between Eduardo and Blu, but still loves her brother despite his feelings toward Blu.

Blu

Mimi accepts Blu despite his mistakes, smooths the conflict between him and Eduardo, and tries her best to help him fit into clan life. She loves her nephew-in-law, and tries to help him when it comes to life in the wild.

Jewel

Mimi loves her niece dearly, showing enthusiasm and excitement when they were reunited. She affectionately calls Jewel her "little wild flower," and welcomes her back into the tribe.

Bia, Carla, and Tiago

Mimi is happy to be a great-aunt, and loves Bia, Carla and Tiago, showing such enthusiasm in their first meeting that she frightens them a little. She dances with them during the celebrations at Jewel's return. She also seems to entertain Bia with knowledge of the forest, like teaching her about how eating clay is good for them.

Roberto

Mimi respects and appreciates Roberto, but smacked him when he had a breakdown about the loggers.

Trivia

  • In Rio 2: The Junior Novel, Mimi was the one Eduardo aired his grievances regarding Blu to, rather then Roberto.
  • Her remark about seeing Jewel's return "in the droppings" suggests she dabbles in some form of fortune-telling or divination.
  • Mimi was probably supposed to have a more major part in Rio 2; her description on the Rio website suggests that she would have smoothed conflict between Blu and Eduardo, challenge Eduardo about his opinion, along with telling Eduardo to get over with his problems with his new son-in-law; these such things are not seen in the movie (though in the novelisation, she told Eduardo to respect Jewel's choice of mate).
