Maya the Bee Movie

Synopsis: Freshly hatched bee Maya is a little whirlwind and won't follow the rules of the hive. One of these rules is not to trust the hornets that live beyond the meadow. When the Royal Jelly is stolen, the hornets are suspected and Maya is thought to be their accomplice. No one believes that she is the innocent victim and no one will stand by her except for her good-natured and best friend Willy. After a long and eventful journey to the hornets hive Maya and Willy soon discover the true culprit and the two friends finally bond with the other residents of the opulent meadow.

No one in the hive likes me.

Maybe I'm just

bad at being a bee.

Sounds serious.

Hey! Hey, what are you--

Do not disturb the

great Dr. Flippenstein.

You got a good heart, kid.

Say "Ah".


What do you know?

Bees do have teeth.

Beeswax... Promising.

In my professional opinion,

the diagnosis is bee positive.

You're a good

little buzzer, kid.

Don't let anyone

say otherwise.

Maybe we should get you

back to the hive, little one.

No, Flip, can't I stay?


Approaching marigold


Commence pollen

collection procedure.

What is it?


Hold on to your buckets!

Why so shy?

Well, well, well.

What do we got here?

Greedy little fluff-balls

nabbing all the pollen

for themselves.

Hold onto your buckets!

Thieving buzz boxes about!

Take that back, you

hoity toity hivecrawler.

Hornets don't steal.

Go back where you came from,


We're shaking in our shells.

Lucky for you

I've got a camp to set up.

See you around... neighbor.

There goes the neighborhood.

Hey, my bucket's gone.

- You see? Dirty thieves.

-Back to the hive!

We need to report

this to the Queen.

Oh dear.

No, Flip-Bug, can't I stay?

It's all so big

and sunshiney out here,

and it smells so nice.

Here you go, little buzzer.

I've got to hop.

Bees don't like other bugs

hanging around the hive.

- No, I want to stay!

-Don't worry,

you'll see it again soon.

- Really?

-Sure! Flowers and bees

go together

like spiders and legs.

But if you really want the

low-down on the meadow,

you just call old Flip.

You can find me...

Bees don't talk to other bugs!

It wasn't another bug,

he was Flip.

See you next time.



Flip, I want to go with you.

Bees don't leave the hive

on their own. Now back to work!

"Bees don't, bees never,

Waldemar Bonsels

Waldemar Bonsels (21 February 1880 in Ahrensburg – 31 July 1952 in Ambach) was a German writer. Waldemar Bonsels's most famous work is the children's book Die Biene Maja (Maya the Bee). This work also served the basis for a Japanese animated television series named Maya the Honey Bee in the mid-1970s, as well as a Croatian opera for children written by Bruno Bjelinski, making Bonsels work known to even a great audience. The Opera was staged 2008 in Villach, Austria at the Carinthian Summer Music Festival. "Himmelsvolk" (People in the sky) is a sequel with a more philosophical focus, describing a in mystical terms the unity of all creation and its relationship to God. There are a number of novels and shorter stories dealing with love as Eros and on the higher level of divine love in the spirit of romanticism (Eros und die Evangelien, Menschenwege, Narren und Helden, etc.), with the relationship between man and nature in a simple life unchanged by modern civilisation (Anjekind, etc.) and also including a historical novel from the time of Jesus (Der Grieche Dositos). He travelled extensively in Europe and Asia. Voyage in India (Indienfahrt) is the fruit of one of these travels. Bonsels was an outspoken anti-Semite and expressed his approval of Nazi politics against Jews in 1933, calling the Jew "a deadly enemy" who was "poisoning the culture" in an article which was widely published. more…
