Category: Blu-ray's and DVD's

She’s back and even sweeter than before, just like her honey. Maya the Bee stole the hearts of movie audiences in 2015 and she does it again in her second film Maya the Bee 2: The Honey Games.

When fun-loving Maya gets the hive into a jam, it’s up to her to save their summer honey crop, with the help of a team of misfit bugs and her best friend Willie. After upsetting the Empress of Buzztropolis, who happens to be the Queen’s sister, Maya must win The Honey Games or forfeit Poppy Meadow’s entire summer honey crop, which would mean certain death for many in the hive.

The Poppy Meadow team consists of a lackluster group of last-minute recruits who only want to lose quickly to get back to their humdrum lives. They are unaware of the issue of the honey crop. They are also uncoordinated, clumsy, and lack the desire to win. Maya decides in order to win she must make this ragtag group into a cohesive team. Teamwork is what will win the games, and the honey crop.

They are up against a team from Buzztropolis, led by a snobby group of mean girls. These selfish, conceited, snotty girls will stop at nothing in order to win the games.

Through discipline and motivation, Maya and her team manage to pull out several victories and on the way to the finals she learns the most important lesson of all. She must take responsibility for her deeds. This adorable and well-meaning little bee always feels like she has to solve all the world’s problems by herself. But just as she made a team out of the bugs from Poppy Meadow, Maya learns how to be part of a team herself.

The movie is colorful, exciting, and of course Maya is a character that will capture your heart once again. This high-spirited little bee is an inspirational character and one the entire family will enjoy. Her lust for life is infectious. Her giggles and laughter will ring in your ears long after the movie is over. She is definitely a delight.

Maya the Bee 2: The Honey Games is just as fun and entertaining as the original film, and Maya continues to be a bee to believe in! Yay, Maya. And go Team Poppy Meadow!

Maya the Bee has been a beloved character for generations, ever since she was introduced to the public in 1912 in the children’s novel, “The Adventures of Maya the Bee” by Waldemar Bonsels. She has gained international acclaim and fans in her TV series, books, and films. This is her second feature film with hopefully more on the way. Maya the Bee 2: The Honey Games is a fun family film with plenty of buzz. Enjoy!
