I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
My oldest is completely in love with Disneynature films. She loves learning about animals and these movies put them into story format that make it fun and enjoyable for the whole family to watch. Monkey Kingdom, narrated by Tina Fey, is this breathtaking feature film coming out on?Digital HD, Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) & Blu-ray Combo Pack on September 15.
From Disneynature, the studio that brought you Chimpanzee and Bears, comes MONKEY KINGDOM, a spectacular tale set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya, a clever and resourceful monkey, finds her world forever changed when she welcomes her son Kip into her colorful extended family. As Maya strives to keep Kip safe through unexpected and sometimes perilous adventures, amazing footage captures all the magic and surprises of their magnificent world. Maya and her family will make you laugh and warm your heart as she realizes her dreams for her son's future.

The first thing I have to say about these Disneynature films is that the footage is STUNNING. These movies really take you into another world. Monkey Kingdom tells the story of Maya and how she lives in a group where she is on the bottom of the social ladder. An outside male monkey makes an appearance but is quickly brushed off by the alpha male but not without leaving Maya pregnant with Kip. Maya and the other lower class monkeys struggle to keep themselves fed all while the upper class monkeys get the best food and the best sleeping arrangements. Maya does everything she can for her baby boy and in nature things are constantly changing. This movie is another hit from Disneynature and my whole family really enjoys it!
