MAYA THE BEE MOVIE
Available in Stores May 19, From Shout! Factory Kids!
Kids and their parents across North America will soon be enamored by the world famous little bee named Maya and her little insect friends when the international smash hit “MAYA THE BEE MOVIE” makes its buzz-worthy debut on DVD and on two-disc BLU-RAY™ 3D Combo Pack from Shout! Factory Kids on May 19, 2015.
Maya is a little bee with a big heart. She dreams of an exciting life of freedom, fun and adventure – the world is simply far too interesting to stay inside a hive! Her funny attempts to fit in bring her into trouble with the Queen’s narrow-minded royal advisory, Buzzlina. With her best friend Willy, Maya buzzes out into the meadow on an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery.
While most bees believe that other insects should be feared, Maya can’t help but make friends with Flip the charismatic and eccentric grasshopper, Kurt the dung beetle and even Sting, a young hornet. But when the Queen’s royal jelly is stolen, it will take Maya and all of her bug buddies to figure out who did it and how to save the day!
One of the best-known and beloved children’s brands of all-time, the stories of Maya The Bee have been passed down among generations of families for years. Originally a German children’s novel by Waldemar Bonsels, The Adventures of Maya the Bee was published over a hundred years ago in 1912. Since the original publishing, the book has been translated into many other languages and enjoyed by children all over the world. In addition to the book, Maya The Bee is also a comic book series, appeared in various iterations as animated series and is now a major animated feature film.
Our youngest daughter has been waiting to see this movie since she first heard it was coming out. As soon as she found out we had it she wanted to check it out immediately. She totally loved watching Maya go flitting around and trying to meet new friends and have a fun adventure. All three kids were thrilled to see the movie and it kept them sitting and laughing through the entire movie. I sat and watched most of it with them and have to admit that really it was quite a funny and adorable kids movie. It is the good, clean family type movie that you can feel comfortable letting your kids watch without supervision while still being amusing enough that you are tempted to just sit there and enjoy it with them anyway. Definitely a movie to add to any collection.
