Everyone’s favourite little bee is making her big screen debut in Maya The Bee Movie showing at select Event Cinemas, Greater Union and BCC Cinemas from November 1st.
Based on the children’s book from 1912 and the much-loved ABC TV series Maya The Bee Movie introduces Coco Jack Gillies as Maya and features the vocal talents of 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, the Harry Potter franchise) and Shane Dundas and David Collins aka “the Umbilical Brothers” (The Upside Down Show).
Maya the Bee Movie will follow the charming Maya’s inquisitive desire to escape her heavily regimented existence and experience the freedom to explore, outside the rules of her hive. Set against the backdrop of a longstanding conflict between bees and hornets, Maya is born into a hive where conformity rules. Her funny attempts to fit in and “be a bee” immediately bring her into conflict with the Queen’s Royal Advisor. With her best friend Willi tagging along, Maya leaves the hive and buzzes out into the meadow on an exhilarating adventure of self-discovery. Where does she fit in? And how will she find a way to defeat the Royal Advisor and prevent a nasty battle between the bees and hornets?
All tickets to see Maya The Bee Movie on the big screen are $7.
