Storyline

Freshly hatched bee Maya is a little whirlwind and won't follow the rules of the hive. One of these rules is not to trust the hornets that live beyond the meadow. When the Royal Jelly is stolen, the hornets are suspected and Maya is thought to be their accomplice. No one believes that she is the innocent victim and no one will stand by her except for her good-natured and best friend Willy. After a long and eventful journey to the hornets hive Maya and Willy soon discover the true culprit and the two friends finally bond with the other residents of the opulent meadow.

Trivia

The first version of this story was made in 1925 with its writer, Waldemar Bonsels assisting the production. Produced in Germany and released under the title, "Die Biene Maja und ihre Abenteuer" and released in Britain as "The Adventures of Maya". It used micro-photography of real insects to tell the story. The last remaining nitrate 35mm print of the British version is owned by a Scottish archive who made a super 8mm reprint in 2000. See more »

Great film. Fun, sweet with great message for kids
21 October 2014 | by alexis-joySee all my reviews

I went and saw Maya the Bee movie the other day and I loved it.

It has a great storyline, characters, animation, message for kids and kept me entertained.

There's a perfect balance of action & events as Maya discovers her place in the world and how to make friends along the way. I loved the dung beetle, thought he was hilarious and cannot believe that was Jacki Weaver's voice as Buzzlina. She was unrecognisable! I was also happy to see the Umbilical Brothers in their element as a duo bouncing off one-another.

I was brought into Maya's world with the great animation and the message "Bee yourself" isn't lost on me as an adult either.

Two thumbs up, Maya!
