What species

My wife was watching a movie on Amazon Prime called "End of the spear" today.

In this move the natives of the rain forest have an Amazon parrot that looks very much like my Green cheek amazon with one notable exception.
The color of the beak (both upper and lower) where they meet at the edge have a dark edge. My Green cheek amazon parrots beaks are entirely light colored.

Could it be a hybrid ?

Re: What species

With Hybrids, one can never say never.
That said, the coloration of the upper and lower bills are very species specific. It would take a dedicated breeder and several generations to set that specific feature.
Possibly a discoloration of the beak edge from a recent chewing event?
