» Maya the Bee — The Movie » and » Maya the Bee 2 — The Honey Games » were not the first cinema adventures of the cult bee — this honor is due to a silent film from 1926 that was shot with real insects (!). But for many fans it must have been the first time they saw Maja on the big screen. With » Maya the Bee 3 — The Secret Kingdom «, the next part of the series will start in cinemas on May 5, 2022. Above we have the German trailer for you.
This is what «Maya the Bee — The Secret Kingdom» is about
Maja (voice: Theresa Zertani ) has once again caused a big mess with her carefree manner and as punishment she now wants to separate the queen of the poppy meadow from her best friend Willi ( Jan Delay ). To prevent this from happening, Maja and Willi run away and only want to return when they have proven that they can take on responsibility.
So it’s a good thing that an injured ant entrusted them with a golden egg. From this slips a princess who has to be protected from now on. But on the journey to their home they have to overcome many challenges, especially since the two nasty noise beetles ( Emilia Schüle and Sasha ) are after the noble ant offspring…
Is Maya the Bee 3 worth it?
In the FILMSTARTS review, «The Secret Kingdom» received a solid 3 out of 5 stars . Although the third cinematic adventure of the cult bee is told somewhat clumsily, according to critic Oliver Kube, «it is endearingly amusing and illustrated in a sympathetic and independent way».
In addition, it is a pity that there are hardly any appearances of other popular supporting characters such as the grasshopper Flip, but the new figures would provide adequate replacements. In addition, there is a positive message for the young audience, so that nothing stands in the way of a family trip to the cinema.
