Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in Disneynature’s “Monkey Kingdom,” 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, where 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.

Common Sense Says
Tina Fey-narrated monkey documentary is funny, educational.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that nature documentary Monkey Kingdom is family friendly overall but does have a few scenes that could frighten preschool-aged viewers. While Maya, the monkey who's presented as the main character of the story, and her baby remain safe, other members of her clan of macaques do die -- one to an alligator and one to a warring monkey clan. There are also tense moments when it seems like Maya's baby will be hurt, and Maya herself is beaten by more prominent monkeys. On the lighter side, there are strong positive messages about motherhood and sacrifice, and -- thanks in part to Tina Fey's narration -- humor and laughs for the whole family. And on an educational note, everyone will learn a good deal about Sri Lankan macaques.
