Maya The Bee 2: The Honey Games is based on the well-known children’s novel and popular animated series in Europe, Australia and Asia and offers an immersive cinematic adventure into a spectacular macroscopic world. A must-have for fans of all ages, the film is an instant classic that delivers wholesome family entertainment— emphasizing the importance of friendship, responsibility and courage.
After a slow harvest season, the very survival of the hive is threatened. Maya, and her sidekick, Willy, go to Buzztropolis, where the Empress invites them to participate in the Honey Games. But if they lose, the hive will have to give the Empress all of their summer honey! Needless to say, Maya and Willy’s teammates are neither enthusiastic nor athletic, but Maya remains positive and exclaims that “every bug has a talent!”
Can Maya and Team Poppy win and secure her hive’s future? Only if Maya is able to gain new friends and learn about teamwork, accountability, and overcoming preconceived notions!
We adored the first Maya the Bee movie, so we were excited to watch the sequel. Maya is such an endearing character, but she can also get herself and others into sticky situations. Her hive resides in Poppy Meadows and they have never been invited to play in the Honey Games. This year they are invited, but at a great cost, half their honey supply.
Maya does not think this is fair, so she goes to see the Empress without the Queen’s permission – who incidentally are sisters. Maya and Willy end up participating in the Honey Games, but with some ill-suited teammates. But, Maya believes every bug has a talent. Plus, there is Violet, a bad girl that loves to cheat so her team can win. It doesn’t sound like they have a chance, but Maya is not a quitter. It’s a great family movie and perfect for our collection.
