Maya the Bee Movie

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.

What a lovely dream.


What is this place?

Hey, who's that? Ow!


Be patient, little buzzer,

it's still too early.

But I have to tell you

about my dream.

There was this big,

bright round yellow thing.

And all this blue.

- Bees don't dream.



They just don't.

Now rest. Bees never

hatch until the sun rises

over the daffodils.

Why can't I just

do what I want?

A bee do what she wants?


Patience, little bee.

There's plenty of time

for learning later.

- What's a bee?

-A bee is a good little girl

who does what she's told.

Rock-a-bye bay-bee,

in her wax nest.

When nursie says,

bay-bee will rest.

Good baby,

go to sleep...

That's enough, little one.


In you go.

A bee who does what she wants?


- What are we making?


Now listen here!

We're not going

to tell you again.

Go. Back. In.


Everything is fine.

- What a sweet little bee.


Now, what was her name?

Baby-Bee 396.


She's where she belongs now.


Hello, busy bees!

What is this?

- This is fun.

-Bees don't have fun.

Get off.

Help! I can't see!

- Excuse me!

-Hey, what?!

I can't see.

I can't see.

I don't want to see!

Listen to that buzz,

Your Majesty.

That's the sound

of good little bees

keeping this

great hive efficient.

This was so fun!

Did you see?

I was all the way up there,

then I was like, Bzzz!

Miss Big Bee,

you've got something

on your head.

- Is it heavy?


Clean this up! This is a hive,

not a filthy hornet's nest.

Pull your stinger in, Buzzlina.

She's just a baby.

I'm sure it was an accident.

If we allow bees to run amuck

like this the hive

will fall into chaos.

She is right.

Every bee in this hive

-has a role to play.

-What's my role?

Patience, little one.

You'll find your place.

You just need to learn how

everything works first.

But she broke the rules.

She must be punished!

See that she gets to

school safely, Buzzlina.

Of course,

Your Majesty.

"Every bee has

a role to play..."

We must do something

about the Queen, Crawley.

She's not fit to rule this hive.

Right, you little menace...


- Halt.


- What kind of bee are you?

-A marchy bee, like you, silly.

I hardly think so.

Bees don't behave like that.

Fall in, soldier!





Whoa. Beautiful.

Like a maple tree

in the fall...

Oh, no.

Too syrupy-

Oh, so many colors!


Simple! To the point!

So many colors...

Nothing is as dull as

staying inside

Kid, that's great.

Where did you learn to write

songs like that? Hee-hop!

It's like you're seeing the

world for the first time.

You've got music in you, little

buzzer, and what goes in...


must come out.

Come on, try it.






Save some for later.

- You're a funny green bee.

-Green bee?

You are seeing the world

for the first time!

Pardon me, little miss.

Flip the grasshopper

is my name.

Roaming the meadow

is my game.

What's the meadow?

What's the meadow?

Kid, you got to get out more.


There it is.

The meadow...

my home.

You live out here?

Not just me. Lots of insects

live in the meadow.

Big, small, funny, smelly.

You name it.

It's everything you can see.

Up, down, sky to ground from

your hive to the tulip beds,

all the way

to Gorgo's hedge.

Where no little bee

should ever go.


Because a giant

bug-eating monster

named Gorge fives there.

But enough of that!

Where are your friends?

Bees always travel in groups.

I don't think

I have any friends.

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…
