Something like this:

location ~ ^/people/(?<REST>.+) {
return 301 http://example.com/users/$REST$is_args$args;
}

However, if you do not want to care about location order in future, this is better:

location /people/ {
location ~ ^/people/(?<REST>.+) {
return 301 http://example.com/users/$REST$is_args$args;
}
}
