Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom Trailer

monkeykingdom-1
Walt Disney was a pioneer in wildlife documentary filmmaking, producing 13 True Life Adventure motion pictures between 1948 and 1960, including “Seal Island” (1948), “Beaver Valley” (1950), “The Living Desert” (1953) and “Jungle Cat” (1958). Today, the Walt Disney Company continues that tradition under the Disneynature label.

The newest film in the series is “Monkey Kingdom.” It follows Maya, a blonde-bobbed monkey, through ancient ruins in the jungles of South Asia. Maya’s life changes when she welcomes a son and encounters a group of neighboring monkeys.

“Monkey Kingdom” is the sixth theatrical release for Disneynature. The label was launched in April 2008 to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to capture a variety of wildlife subjects and stories. The first five big-screen releases under the Disneynature label—“Earth,” “Oceans,” “African Cats,” “Bears” and “Chimpanzee”—are among the top six highest grossing feature-length nature films of all time.

For every ticket sold opening week (April 17-23, 2015), Disneynature will make a donation to Conservation International to help protect monkeys and other endangered species in their natural habitats.
