Monkey Kingdom is swinging into theaters on April 17th and making a difference in the lives of monkeys,endangered species, and their habitats. All tickets sold during opening week will go to this amazing conservation effort. Disneynature films through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund have made an impact worldwide by planting trees, protecting habitats, establishing habitats, and supporting education. Check out this new video to see for yourself!

Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in “Monkey Kingdom,” Disneynature’s new feature film set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya’s world is forever changed when she welcomes her son, Kip, into her complicated extended family. Like all families, Maya’s has more than its share of colorful personalities—and she’s determined to give her son a leg up in the world. When their longtime home at Castle Rock is taken over by powerful neighboring monkeys, Maya’s whole family retreats, and she uses her street smarts and ingenuity to uncover untapped resources amidst strange new creatures and unsettling surroundings. Ultimately, they will all have to work together to reclaim Castle Rock, where Maya can hopefully realize her dreams for her son’s future.
Featuring a rich variety of characters, including a mischievous mongoose, simple-minded langur monkeys, predatory leopards and monitor lizards, “Monkey Kingdom” is narrated by Tina Fey (“30 Rock”), directed by Mark Linfield (“Chimpanzee,” “Earth”) and co-directed by Alastair Fothergill (“Chimpanzee,” “Bears”). With music from award-winning composer Harry Gregson-Williams (“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” “Shrek” movies), Disneynature’s eighth True Life Adventure—the follow-up to 2014’s “Bears”—swings into theaters April 17, 2015.
I just love Disneynature films and the insight they bring us about this animals. It is an experience we could not get anywhere else~ animals in their natural habitats which makes for a great learning opportunity! Disneynature has created an eductor activity pack sooo children can, learn more about these adorable monkeys and the conservation effort. Perhaps we can help shape the next generation to love and respect the Earth. *As a homeschooler, I love opportunities like this where we can tie a movie or book with worksheets and activities! Stay tuned for some adorable crafts!
