[birds singing]

[kids giggling]

[kids laughing]

[hums a tune]

- Huh?

- [whirring noise approaching]



[Maya laughing]

Yes, keep going!

- Woohoo! [laughs]

- Maya! But I wanna get off!

Oh, can't we just... [screams]

Willi! Close your mouth!

You're slowing us down!



[Ben snickers]

- They're getting away!

- [Drago yelps]

[Drago] Whoa, whoa!

- Whoa!

- [all grunting]


Hey, ease up on the feelers!

[Maya] Sorry!

Go, Drago, faster!

You wanna go faster, huh?

I'll show you faster!

Maya, stop!

- Huh?

- Faster, Drago, faster!

- [Willi whimpers]

- [giggles]

[gasps] Oh no!

- What are you doing!?

- We can make it!

- [Willi] No, Maya don't even...

- Now, Drago!

[Willi] Maya!

- [Drago grunts]

- [Willi screaming]


[screams approaching]





That was so fun, did you see?

We were flying upside down,

and were like... [mimics plane]

You guys were awesome!

Now who wants to race again?

Um, uh...


We've gotta go clean our leaf.

We've gotta go clean our leaf.

Bye Maya!


Wow, Maya, that was amazing!

You're so fast, you should

totally be in the Honey Games!

Thanks, Ronnie, I'd love to,

but our hive never gets invited.

Yep, and I think

that's a good thing.

I've had it with racing.

Aw Willi,

we were just having fun!

You were having fun, Maya.

I was having...


What's the opposite of fun?

- Not-fun?

- Not-fun. Thanks, Ronnie.

You're welcome.

- [Maya] Willi!

- What?

Tag! [chuckles]

[Willi] Oh, Maya.

Why don't you ever listen?

- Tag, you're in.

- In what?

- [sighs] It doesn't matter.

- Bye, Willi!


Bye, Ronnie! Hey, wait for me!

[indistinct chatter]


Gather round children,

come and get your honey cakes.

- One for you.

- [gulps]

Here's yours.

[little bee]

Hey wait for me!

And for you... Oh! [chuckles] No.

[little bee 2]

Oh, happy Harvest, Your Majesty!

Oh! [chuckles]

And happy Harvest to you.

Is everything in order, Crawley?

Certainly, ma'am. The honey

barrels are being stacked

in the Great Hall as we speak.

[feet stamping]


[Pouring Bee shrugs]

Is... is that all of it,


Uh, it...

It was a short summer, ma'am.


Don't worry,

everything will be just fine.

- [machinery creaking]

- [indistinct chatter]

[Maya and Willi laughing]


Come on, Willi, we're late.

- [Willi] Coming!

- [Maya woops]

I told you we're going

the wrong way.

No we're not! This is the way.

- [Maya giggles]

- Huh?

- [both scream]

- [guards grunt]

[both groan]



[guards] Grr!

Hello, Mr. Important

Looking Big Bee, Sir.

Sorry we bumped into you.

I'm Maya and this is Willi.

Hmm, indeed.

- I am looking for Poppy Meadow.

- [Maya] Hmm. Huh?

I have a very important message

to deliver to the Queen.


You're from Buzztropolis!

Very observant.

[Maya gasps]

An important message?

That could only mean one thing.

Did you hear that, Willi?

- Did you hear it?

- Ahh...

- We're going to the Honey Games!

- We are?

- [Willi groans]

- This is really happening!


Follow me, Mr. What'sa-Face.

I'll take you to the Queen!


- [Maya giggles]

- Oh, Maya.

[Beegood] Hmm.

[all cheering]


Hurray for Poppy Meadow.

I know it has been a long

and difficult harvest

for everyone.

You have toiled tirelessly

to collect the pollen...

Happy Harvest, Maya!

Happy Harvest!

Come on, this way.

[Queen] ...teamwork,

collaboration and community

is at the heart of the harvest.

- [guard 1 groans]

- [guard 2 chuckles]

By working together, we will

all see it through another year.

[all cheering]

Well done, Poppy Meadow.

I am Sir Beegood the third.

I come from Buzztropolis

with good news,

direct from the Empress herself.

- [gasps]

- As you know,

the glorious Honey Games

are about to commence,

and your hive has been selected

for a great, great honor...

Told you, Willi!

They're inviting us

to the Honey Games!

[Beegood] generously contribute

half your honey harvest

to the Honey Games!

- [all gasp]

- Oh no!

Yay! [woops]

Wait. What?

What? Half our honey?

That's nearly 50 percent!

You can't do that!

It's not fair!

Maya, no.


It is an honor indeed,

Sir Beegood,

however, your request

is unreasonable.

We can certainly contribute

a little honey, but half?

Our hive won't make it

through the winter.

You dare refuse

the Empress' order?




As the Empress wishes.

[all gasping]

Quite right.


No, wait, Mr. Bigbuzz!

I mean, Sir Bees... [groans]

Whatever your name is!

You've made a big mistake!

Oh, Willi,

we have to do something.

Well, yeah,

someone needs to do something.

Aw, it's gonna

be a long, hungry winter.


[Maya] Your Majesty?

We can't let the Empress

take our honey!

[scoffs] The Empress will do

whatever she wants.

It's not fair!

My big sister doesn't play fair,

she never has.

[gasps] She's your sister?

Oh! Well, then it's easy.

If she's your sister, then you

can just go talk to her.


She won't listen to me.

Maybe I can help.

No, Maya.

There are some things

you can't fix on your own.

Excuse me, ma'am.

You're needed in the Great Hall.

Mm. It's not your concern, Maya.

I can help.


I can't believe

she's the Queen's Sister.

Yeah, and she's a real

meanie bug!

- We have to help the Queen!

- Mm-hm, yep.

Willi, what are you doing?

This is an emergency!

Yeah, and this

is my emergency pollen!

Anyway, how can we help?

We're just two little bees.


We go to Buzztropolis!

Oh, sure,

we'll just hitch a ride

somewhere we've never been

and tell a scary Empress

we don't even know,

"Sorry, but you can't

take our honey."

Yeah! That's a great plan,

Willi! Come on!

What? Plan? What plan?

- Oh, I've got a plan.

- Come on, Willi!

Oh, Maya!



[Maya] Drago? Hello!

[yawns] No more racing today.

We don't wanna race,

we need a ride to Buzztropolis!

Huh? That's a long way.

I don't want to go there.

- Come on, Drago. Just this once.

- No, no, no.

- Please? Come on Drago.

- [chuckles] Stop it.

- [chuckling]

- Come on. Come on!

Okay! Okay!

I'll do it, I'll do it.


Ready, Willi?

Uh-uh, not this little bee, no...

[screams] Maya!


Buzztropolis here we come!


Right, we must prepare.

Bronson, count up all the honey

barrels in the Great Hall.

Rupert go and tally

the reserves.

Yes, ma'am!

Crawley, you...

Crawley? Crawley!


Your Majesty! Maya and Willi

were seen leaving the meadow!

It looked like

they were heading for...


[Maya] Woohoo!

[Willi] Whoa! Whoa!

Whoa, Willi,

look at all those insects.

[indistinct chatter]

They're going

to the Honey Games.

Yeah, but they are invited.

Whoa, what is that?

That is Buzztropolis.

It's beautiful.

[indistinct chatter]

- [chuckles] Good luck, kids.

- Thanks, Drago.

Come on, Willi.

Let's find the Empress!
