There are great lessons about loyalty and friendship, as well as some laughs at some of the antics Maya and her friends get up to. Maya and her friends also have to learn about consequences for their actions, which I know my kids could use a little extra lesson in themselves. This is a fun movie to watch with the lessons in the story really hitting home for a lot of kids and families.
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!
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 now a major animated feature film.
This is a very cute and endearing movie for kids of all ages. Maya doesn’t feel like she quite fits in but learns some valuable lessons about everybody having their own worth. My kids loved the characters and the animation was perfect. We watched this together as a family and really enjoyed the movie.
