During an interview, Carlos Saldanha conditioned the third film to the success of Rio 2:

  • "I have tons of ideas. Once you've connected with the characters, you have so many stories to tell. It's like our family – you can write books about your family. It doesn't take much work. That's the territory I tap into and I know there's plenty more to tell. It all depends on how the schedules shape up. I'm already scheduled to direct other films. If people enjoy this one, maybe we'll think about a third."

Another interview from CRI English on Rio 2 impressions and a new film. Though viewers who have seen Rio 2 are anticipating Rio 3 and further sequels, Saldanha said he is working on a new animated film, adapted from a very famous American book.
