Monkey Kingdom is a breathtaking film that captures the story of a group of monkeys in the jungles of Sri Lanka . What I love most about Disneynature films is that they are not just documentaries, they are a beautiful stories about animals that have never been captured on film quite like this before.
Here are my Top 5 Reasons Why Your Family Will Love Monkey Kingdom!
1. Maya and her family
Monkey Kingdom introduces you to Maya, a macaques monkey with a blonde bob and 3 freckles on her nose. (Who doesn’t love a blonde bob on a monkey?) She is the underdog in Monkey Kingdom that was born into the bottom of her monkey tribe. Because of this Mya is scrappy, by necessity. She does a good job taking care of herself despite the higher ranking monkeys getting first dibs on anything worth having.
Mya’s world changes when she welcomes her son Kip into the world and into her complicated tribe. She’s determined to give her son a better future, but that won’t be easy even for a resourceful monkey like Maya.
2. Monkey Business
It would not be a movie about monkeys without monkey business. These monkeys are can be mischievous, fun, and aggressive when it comes to protecting their territory. Plus, who knew that their was a social hierarchy for monkeys? It really helps you cheer for the underdog Maya and her family even more.
3. The Scenery
Monkey Kingdom is set among ancient ruins of a city in the storied jungles of Sri Lanka. These monkey’s use the abandoned city that was once home to royalty as their home and playground. The ruins are covered in rich greens thanks to its generous annual monsoon season, and is dotted with intricate stone carvings, and Buddha statues that have stood the test of time.
The monkeys favorite spots are the giant fig tree that servers as shelter, protection and food, and Castle Rock that is used to climb on and protect them from the rain.
