Peri is a cameo character from Rio 2. He was voiced by Jeffrey Garcia who also voiced Tipa in Rio and Kipo in Rio 2.


Rio 2

Peri first appears when Nigel (in disguise) mistakenly perceives him for Blu. When Nigel attacked him, he soon realized that he wasn't Blu, but another Spix's Macaw, who came to audition for Nico, Pedro, Rafael, and Carla's talent show. Peri is then shoved away by Nigel, who later presents himself to the group by singing "I Will Survive" with Gabi.

Peri is also seen in a deleted scene; Nigel emerges to begin his performance in the show itself, only to see that the audience and other contestants are fleeing. Peri flies by, and Nigel grabs his neck, demanding to know what is going on. Frustrated by Nigel again, Peri tells him that the logging activity means that the show has been cancelled, infuriating Nigel, who then drops him.


He has blue feathers, with the face region painted in yellow. A tuft of feathers sprouts over his beak.

  • Peri: "As I was saying..."

  • In Rio 2: The Junior Novel, Peri is described as a Blue-and-gold Macaw. He was probably called a Blue-and-gold macaw because he had a yellow face. But Peri is a spix's macaw because the yellow on his face was probably painted on.
