Studio 100 Film has released the international trailer of “Maya the Bee – The Golden Orb” on its YouTube channel. The new movie about the famous little bee Maya will be released into cinemas in 2020 and 2021.

“Maya the Bee 3 – The Golden Orb” is produced by Studio 100 Media, in co-production with Australian animation company Studio B Animation and in association with Flying Bark Productions. Munich-based Studio 100 Film is the international sales agency for the worldwide rights. To date the movie has been sold to Australia, the US, Canada, Brazil, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Ex- Yugoslavia, CIS Territories and the Baltics, Turkey, Israel, the United Kingdom and South Korea.  

Tracy Lenon, producer at Studio B Animation, says: “The Australian/German co-production of Maya the Bee – The Golden Orb has provided yet another fantastic opportunity to tell a story with our much-loved, empathetic Maya who bravely accepts the challenge to help others despite being faced with some tricky obstacles. Maya’s BFF, Willie, truly shines in this adventure to offer an uplifting, funny tale which will have children and their families laughing out loud. The teams in Australia and Germany have worked incredibly hard to ensure that the loyal Maya audience will be inspired with the highest quality animation of which they have come to expect.”

“Maya the Bee – The Golden Orb” follows the adventures of Maya, a headstrong little bee, and her best friend Willi, as they rescue an ant princess and find themselves in the middle of an epic bug battle that will take them to strange new worlds and test their friendship to its limits.

Thorsten Wegener, producer and head of operations at Studio 100 Media, says: “Maya the Bee’s adventures have delighted audiences around the world and this new film will bring old and new characters together in a fun-filled, comedic story which will appeal to younger and older audiences. Recent challenges to working life have led to our Australian and German teams staying at home to work remotely while finishing the film. It’s quite extraordinary that all this could be achieved with only a small delay on delivery.”

“Maya the Bee – First Flight” and “Maya the Bee – The Honey Games”, the first two theatrical features of the beloved bee were sold to more than 130 countries around the globe and both were the most successful German animated film according to the international box office in 2015 and 2018.
