Shout! Factory Maya the Bee Movie ~ #Review & #Giveaway

Meet Maya the Bee (aka #396). Once she opens her eyes she has been curious about everything and questioned everything. She wants to explore and doesn't do what bees normally do.  You know she is a little trouble maker and getting into everything.  Throughout the whole movie, she does nothing but laugh, giggle, and just wants to have some fun. She left the bee hive with her trusty friend Willy and in the meadow she befriends Sting, a kid hornet.  My kids enjoyed watching this movie.  They liked to follow Maya on her adventure and discover what is in the meadow and how it is like to befriend other bugs.  I bet my kids can relate to Maya where she would question all the rules and don't follow the "rules".  It is a great movie to watch.

“MAYA THE BEE MOVIE” Synopsis 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!
