Maya And The Bees Rate

This is a good movie that teaches kids that bullying others is not okay, and that revenge isn’t good. Positivity!

A return of a classic

Our favourite. Really interesting, but sometimes she improved their behaviour. But with the help of some buddies, that bee changed their way to be friendly. That Aussie dub is very interesting. As seen on ZDF.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Colorful, expressive animation; voice actors giving their all to whimsical, distinctive roles; and bugs and bees who are endowed with wonderfully human traits make this a charming film for families. Positive messages, and there are many in Maya the Bee 2: The Honey Games, are beautifully integrated into the story. Maya isn't always well-behaved, but she takes responsibility for her mistakes. The many featured characters shine as they learn something about their own specialness, about self-confidence, and trying new things. Honesty counts most of all. Even Violet, the potential bully, and the Empress, arrogant and smug, are touched by Maya's generous spirit, love of freedom, and passion for fairness. Young viewers who are comfortable with some mild cartoon action and suspense will be, too. Highly recommended.
