Jewel's childhood friend, Eduardo's wingman and the hearthrob of the Spix's macaw tribe, Roberto is a new character in Rio 2 who stirs up Blu's jealousy. With an impressive wingspan, curtain of silky head feathers and a beautiful singing voice, Roberto seems to be the perfect specimen of a wild bird. A singer, a dancer, and all suaveness and confidence, Roberto is the complete opposite of Blu in almost every way. However, Roberto is not so perfect afterall; under the surface, there is a hidden secret. He is voiced by the award-winning singer Bruno Mars, and even sings a song in Rio 2, Welcome Back.
Did you know that Amazon Rainforest is the largest and the most species-rich area of that kind on the world? The basin covers more than 7,000,000 square kilometers, of which about 5,500,000 square kilometers are covered by rainforests! That's more than one half of all the rainforests in the world! The major characteristic is the very high biodiversity in the entire region - it is home to about 2.5 million insect species, tons of plants species, and almost 2,000 mammals and birds. One fifth of the bird species and one fifth of the fish species live within Amazon Rainforest. However, continued deforestation and poaching can annihilate this full-of-life area, what somewhat happens to be a part of Rio 2.
