Disneynature’s MONKEY KINGDOM in Theaters April 17, 2015
While I was in LA this past spring I watched my first Disneynature film, BEARS, and it was amazing! They are the perfect film to take your family to. Absolutely stunning video captured of the animals and nature. Dropping into to theaters this Earth Day April 17, 2015 is Disneynature’s MONKEY KINGDOM. I adore monkeys! They are such a cute animal and some are pretty noisy! During my trip to LA in March, I had the opportunity to visit the beautiful LA Zoo and meet the Siamang monkeys.
Meet Maya and her curious newborn, Kip, in the brand new trailer for MONKEY KINGDOM.
Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in “Monkey Kingdom,” Disneynature’s new feature film set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya’s world is forever changed when she welcomes her son, Kip, into her complicated extended family. Like all families, Maya’s has more than its share of colorful personalities—and she’s determined to give her son a leg up on the social ladder. When their longtime home at Castle Rock is taken over by powerful neighboring monkeys, Maya’s whole family is forced to relocate, and she uses her street smarts and ingenuity to lead them to untapped resources amidst strange new creatures and unsettling surroundings. Ultimately, they will all have to work together to reclaim Castle Rock, where Maya can hopefully realize her dreams for her son’s future.
Featuring a rich variety of characters, including a mischievous mongoose, simple-minded langur monkeys, predatory leopards and monitor lizards, “Monkey Kingdom” is directed by Mark Linfield (“Chimpanzee,” “Earth”) and co-directed by Alastair Fothergill (“Chimpanzee,” “Bears”). With music from award-winning composer Harry Gregson-Williams (“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” “Shrek” movies), Disneynature’s eighth True Life Adventure—the follow-up to 2014’s “Bears”—swings into theaters April 17, 2015.
MONKEY KINGDOM opens in theaters everywhere on April 17th!
