About Monkey Kingdom
Set in the South Asia jungle…..Monkey Kingdom showcases a new mom, Maya, a clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey who’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.
This beautifully told real-life story is such a wonderful film for the entire family! My kids were fixated on the screen while watching Monkey Kingdom. They had lots of comments and questions about it too. I love the educational aspect of the film, and that our entire family learned something new! Parents will immediately connect with Maya, the blonde bobbed macaque monkey whose attitude is a standout in the film. She’s persistent and determined to have a better life than the hand she’s been dealt, especially after having her son Kip. Watch this momma monkey literally change the dynamics of her monkey troop. Maya’s other half, Kumar, will have you laughing from the moment he enters the picture. The story unfolds on the screen and will really warm your hearts – leaving a lasting impression.
