In an interview after his nomination for the Academy Award for Best Original Song, Sergio Mendes said that the film is likely to have a sequel, and that Carlos Saldanha is planning it for release in 2014, a few months before the World Cup, which will be held in Brazil. Also, a spokesperson for 20th Century Fox said that the studio is interested in turning Rio into a franchise.

Variety states that Carlos Saldanha had officially signed a five-year deal with 20th Century Fox that allows him to helm live-action and/or animated films, with the sequel being part of that contractual agreement.

Rodrigo Santoro has confirmed his return to voice ornithologist Túlio Monteiro, as well as hinting that the sequel's setting will involve the Amazon.

On November 28, 2012, Don Rhymer, screenplay writer of the first film, died during the writing phase of the sequel, after a battle with cancer.
