Here’s the story synopsis:
Meet Maya and her curious newborn, Kip, in the brand new trailer for Monkey Kingdom, dropping into theatres this Earth Day.
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 on the social ladder. When their longtime home at Castle Rock is taken over by powerful neighboring monkeys, Maya's whole family is forced to relocate, and she uses her street smarts and ingenuity to lead them to 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 was directed by Mark Linfield (Chimpanzee, Earth) and co-directed by Alastair Fothergill (Chimpanzee, Bears). This is the eight Disney Nature animal adventure, and it is released in theaters April 17th, 2015.
