Disneynature Monkey Kingdom is a must see family movie! Today we are sharing our Disneynature Monkey Kingdom film review.
I had the chance to screen the movie while in LA during the #AvengersEvent and it is truly amazing. So heartwarming, funny, and just really great! Trust me when I say this is the perfect movie for the family to enjoy together.
Monkey Kingdom made me really want to book a flight to Sri Lanka…like right now. Oh my gosh it is so beautiful. I want to sit on Castle Rock with the monkeys and look out over the kingdom. I know that probably won’t happen but it is a great dream.
Thankfully this movie gave me the chance to see life in Sri Lanka from the monkeys point of view. Prior to seeing the movie I thought I knew a bit about monkeys but now I am really interested in learning more. This is movie inspires you to to live life as an adventure, to focus on family, to enjoy the little things and to not take for granted a roof over your head.

I love this video showcasing more about the movie Monkey Kingdom…and I am ready to book a flight to Sri Lanka.
This movie tugs on your heart strings and really shows how amazing these monkeys are. Their family dynamic is amazing. From being a first time mom to raising kids in a scary environment so many of the story lines are similar to what each of us go through.
Maya just wants to be the best mom possible for her baby and make sure they have everything they need.
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
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. Disneynatures’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 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 U.S. National Parks and protecting endangered species.
