Posted 2014-10-20 by Jenny Hatton Mahonfollow

Maya the Bee was created by Waldemar Bonsels in his 1912 book, The Adventures of Maya the Bee. This bubbly and boisterous bee has since become a much loved character in comic books, video games and the popular ABC TV series.Now Maya the Bee is coming to you on the big screen in a brand new feature film, Maya The Bee Movie, which is being released in cinemas nationally from Saturday 1 November 2014.

Maya The Bee Movie features a stellar cast of voice talent including Coco Jack Gillies as Maya, Academy Award® nominee, Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom, Silver Linings Playbook), Richard Roxburgh (TV's Rake), Noah Taylor (Game Of Thrones, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Road), Justine Clarke (Play School), Miriam Margolyes (Romeo & Juliet, Harry Potter) and Shane Dundas and David Collins aka "the Umbilical Brothers" (The Upside Down Show).[BREAK]
The story follows the inquisitive Maya as she escapes the heavily regimented existence of the hive to experience freedom in the outside world.

Maya's explorations and attempts to fit in and "be a bee" cause her to clash with the sly and scheming Queen's Royal Advisor, Buzzilina.

The story is set against the backdrop of a longstanding conflict between the bees and hornets and, when Buzzilina learns that Maya has stumbled onto the plot to steal the Queen's royal jelly, she banishes Maya from the hive with her best friend, Willi, in tow.

Away from the safe haven of the hive, Maya and Willi fly into the meadow, encountering strange creatures, exotic bugs and amazing adventure. However, Maya soon realises that the fate of the hive is in her hands and she must do something to save her Queen and home.

In the same vein as Nemo, Antz and Bugs, Maya the Bee Movie is a story about adventure, self-discovery, tolerance and friendship. The story is suitable for all the family, with a target audience of 2-8 year old children.

Maya The Bee Movie will be buzzing into cinemas Australia-wide on Saturday 1 November 2014.
