Disneynature presents a true-life G-rated documentary that follows a female monkey (actually a toque macaque) and her newborn baby as they struggle to survive in ancient ruins found deep in the jungles of Sri Lanka. This is the perfect opportunity for a child to see how the “pecking order” works in the animal world. From that, eventually they will see how it applies to humans, not only on the playground but in the grown-up world as well.
We love all animals and anytime we can see a video that has them in it, we are so happy too.In addition to the main “characters”, you also get to meet Kumar, a newcomer who comes to challenge Raja, as well as a band of rival monkeys with a deformed leader who try to drive them from their home. There’s so much action in this film, it’s not much different than watching an animated movie from Disney. Expect, this is real life, which makes it so much more fascinating.
This is an amazing movie, you get to learn about this adorable movie. Our heroine in this, Maya, is treated poorly by her monkey superiors, but earns some respect from them by the end when she is able to navigate the wild better than the leaders of the monkey clan. The flavor of the film is both serious and funny, just like real life. She is the cutest thing, and the dots on her nose are just so cute. She is a great mommy and protects her family of monkeys.
Maya starts out as a low-ranking member of her clan, but once she gets the attention of the alpha, all of that changes. Raja is the alpha, and he has something of a monkey harem, But there are other monkeys who, are at her beck and call. Maya, is treated poorly by her monkey superiors, but earns some respect from them by the end when she is able to navigate the wild better than the leaders of the monkey clan.
Maya is scrappy, by necessity, and does a good job of taking care of herself, despite her colorful higher-ranking troop mates who get first dibs at anything worth having. But when Maya becomes a mother, her world is forever changed. She’s determined to give her son the kind of upbringing that will arm him to lead his own troop someday. But that won’t be easy—even for a resourceful monkey like Maya
A great movie and the whole family will love it, we watched it together and the kids wanted more, It shows the life of these monkeys and they will fight for their castle.
Disneynature was launched in April 2008. Its mission is to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to share a wide variety of wildlife stories on the big screen in order to engage, inspire and educate theatrical audiences everywhere. Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife filmmaking, producing 13 True-Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, which earned eight Academy Awards®. The first five Disneynature films, “Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats,” “Chimpanzee,” and “Bears” are five of the top six highest overall grossing feature-length nature films to date, with “Chimpanzee” garnering a record-breaking opening weekend for the genre. Disneynature’s commitment to conservation is a key pillar of the label and the films empower the audience to help make a difference. Through donations tied to opening-week attendance and first week of in-home sales for all five films, Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, has planted three million trees in Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, established 40,000 acres of marine protected area in The Bahamas, protected 65,000 acres of savanna in Kenya, protected nearly 130,000 acres of wild chimpanzee habitat, cared for chimpanzees, educated 60,000 school children about chimpanzee conservation and funded research and restoration grants in U.S. National Parks, supporting conservation projects across 400,00 acres of U.S. National Parkland and protecting endangered species.
