Exclusive Clip: Maya the Bee
Posted on April 21, 2015 at 8:00 am
The Adventures of Maya the Bee is a classic children’s book from Germany, originally published more than 100 years ago, about a brave little bee who breaks the rules by leaving the hive but saves the day when she warns the bees about an impending attack. It has been adapted as a comic strip, animated series, and game, and now Maya has her own animated feature film, in theates in NY and LA on May 1, 2015 and on DVD and Blu-Ray, from Shout!Factory Kids on May 19, 2015. In this story, 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 advisor, 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.
