Freshly hatched bee Maya is a little whirlwind and simply won’t follow the rules of the hive. One of these rules, of course, is not to trust other bugs, especially the hornets that live beyond the meadow. But sweet Maya can’t help but make friends with all kinds of other bugs, including a violin-playing grasshopper, a dung beetle and even a young hornet named Sting. When the Royal Jelly is stolen, the hornets are the prime suspects and Maya is thought to be their accomplice. Now, it’s up to Maya and all of her new friends to prove her innocence and find the missing Royal Jelly!
Maya The Bee Movie is presented in stunning 3D for a Bee-utiful family viewing experience!

We were transitioning from our old home and were without cable for a few weeks. My son absolutely loves MTB and I thought it would be a great idea to buy the movie while we waited for our cable installation.
The movie was cute, however, the characters have English accents. I thought the movie was the American version so it did throw him off a bit. He wasn't as engaged at first but loved the singing parts and the fast action. He eventually would sit through the whole movie, and I didn't mind watching it dozens of times either.
This is the movie version of a German cartoon a little young bee "Maya" - being from Germany, I purchased this for my granddaughter (3 1/2) and she loves it. It has a learning effect for children because it teaches kids not to "pre judge" others, but to be open to find out yourself. It shows that some cannot be trusted but things work out when the truth comes and there is a happy ending. This is a nice kids movie without killing or violence and teaches that there are other options beside violence. I really like this movie and recommend it.
I take away one star because I prefer the alternate voice actors seen in the 2012 Maya The TV Series seen in bonus section over some of the voices used in the actual movie. The film has a very Disney like feel to it as it deals with Maya, a new born bee trying to figure out her place her the world while the royal advice giver (like Jafar in Aladdin) tries to take over the crown. If you like such films as Finding Nemo, Aladdin or A Bug's Life you'll find this film extremely enjoyable.
