Jamie Foxx’s Character
Jamie Foxx voices Nico. Smooth-rapping canary is half of a Rio-dwelling dynamic duo also featuring Pedro the cardinal. Nico is a little yellow ball of energy who lives for music.
“When you hear the music, you know you’re in Brazil – or you know you want to be there. Music is part of the film’s DNA, so every time you hear that amazing percussion, you know something magical and fantastic is going to happen.” Jamie Foxx says
