The little CG bee with a big heart returns for her second feature-length adventure when Maya the Bee 2: The Honey Games buzzes to DVD and Blu-ray on May 1, through Shout! Factory Kids (pre-order here). We’re all a-flutter to debut the official trailer for this stateside release, which will also include Digital and a big screen rollout in select theaters.

Produced by Studio 100 Media in association with Flying Bark Productions, The Honey Games is based on the beloved Maya the Bee children’s novel and international animated series hit. The family-friendly adventure takes wing in an immersive bug-sized world.

Directed by Noel Cleary (Tashi), Sergio Delfino (key animator, Chicken Run) and Alexs Stadermann (Maya the Bee Movie; unit director, Bambi II), Maya The Bee 2: The Honey Games features the acclaimed voice talent of Coco Jack Gillies, Richard Roxburgh (Mission: Impossible II), Linda Ngo (Top of the Lake) and Justine Clarke (Home and Away).

Synopsis: After a slow harvest season, the very survival of the hive is threatened. Maya, and her sidekick, Willy, go to Buzztropolis, where the Empress invites them to participate in the Honey Games. But if they lose, the hive will have to give the Empress all of their summer honey! Needless to say, Maya and Willy’s teammates are neither enthusiastic nor athletic, but Maya remains positive and exclaims that “every bug has a talent!”

Can Maya and Team Poppy win and secure her hive’s future? Only if Maya is able to gain new friends and learn about teamwork, accountability, and overcoming preconceived notions!
