The Smugglers are the tertiary villains in Rio. Throughout the movie, they try to capture Blu and Jewel, because they are "the last Blue Macaws on Earth," and they "are worth a fortune!" They try to export them out of the country on a plane. Their client is unknown, but could possibly be French, as Marcel said "au revoir" to him during a phone conversation.
