Studio 100 Media, Munich announced that production has commenced for the third movie about the world’s most famous and beloved little bee Maya. The latest feature film in the series is planned to hit cinemas in 2020/21. “MAYA THE BEE 3 – THE GOLDEN ORB” will be produced by Studio 100 Media in coproduction with Australian production 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 and presents first designs and details at AFM 2018, at Loews Office #653.

“We are delighted to add yet another chapter to Maya the Bee’s success story. We sold our first two Maya movies to more than 170 countries worldwide and already have presales of ‘Maya the Bee 3 – The Golden Orb’ to the USA, France and Poland. For this new movie we renew our successful collaboration with our previous partner Universum Film and hope that Maya’s next theatrical adventure will entertain children and families worldwide just like the first movies have done and still do,” says Ulli Stoef, CEO of  Studio 100 Media.

Brian Rosen, founder of Studio B Animation, adds “My co-producer, Tracy Lenon, and I are very excited to be making another Maya the Bee film. It is such an iconic title that has been entertaining young children for more than 100 years.”

“Flying Bark are proud to be collaborating on our 3rd Maya feature film. We believe in the importance of our young audience seeing inspirational female protagonists who deal with challenges, find solutions and approach obstacles with good natured tenacity. Maya is the kind of relatable character who can be both fun, and a great role model, helping kids make sense of the world around them”, says Barbara Stephen, Managing Director and Executive Producer, Flying Bark Productions.

When Maya and Willi bust out of winter lock down early they are catapulted headfirst into a top secret mission! Entrusted with the care of a sacred seed, Maya and Willi team up with the loveable but clumsy ants Arnie and Barney to deliver the seed to its new home atop the mysterious Bonsai Mountain. But when their “seed” hatches, Maya and Willi come face to face with their biggest responsibility yet – a smooshy, squishy little princess! They have to take on bounty hunters, thugs and ruthless enemies, to return the lost princess to her mountain colony, only to find it hanging in the balance of a turf war and remorseless predators. Willi discovers a side of himself that he never expected as he becomes protective of the tiny princess. In this new adventure Maya’s curiosity and charisma will again engage and delight audiences as Maya has done so for many years. Read more

Ludwigsburg, Filmakademie/Animationsinstitut: Proxima-b – VFX Breakdown

The visual effects of the dramatic outer scene, which are not limited by any earthly limitations, makes the scene plausible. Especially the projection of the planet for correct lighting of the set piece contributed to the integration of the large number of CG and real elements. Particularly impressive is the full CG space ship, which sets the film into a spatial context.

mit: Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott und Marwan Kenzari

Deutscher Kinostart: 23. Mai 2019
Im Verleih von Walt Disney Studio Motion Pictures GmbH

Will Smith („Ali“, „Men in Black“) ist der temperamentvolle Flaschengeist Genie, der jedem, der seine Wunderlampe besitzt, drei Wünsche erfüllt. Die Titelrolle in dieser unsterblichen Geschichte des Straßenjungen Aladdin, der sich in Prinzessin Jasmine, die wunderschöne Tochter des Sultans verliebt, spielt Mena Massoud (Amazons „Jack Ryan“), einer der aufregenden neuen Schauspieler Hollywoods. Naomi Scott („Power Rangers“) verkörpert Jasmine, die ihr Leben selbst in die Hand nimmt. Die Rolle des bösen Zauberers Jafar übernimmt Marwan Kenzari („Mord im Orient-Express“). In weiteren Rollen spielen Navid Negahban („Homeland“), Nasim Pedrad („Saturday Night Live“), Billy Magnussen („Into the Woods“) und Numan Acar („Homeland“).

Guy Ritchie („Sherlock Holmes”, „Codename U.N.C.L.E“) zeichnet verantwortlich für die Regie von ALADDIN. Das Drehbuch stammt aus der Feder von John August („Dark Shadows“, „Big Fish“) und basiert auf dem Animationsfilm „Aladdin“ von 1992 sowie auf den Geschichten aus Tausendundeine Nacht. Die Produzenten sind Dan Lin („The LEGO Movie“) und Golden Globe®-Gewinner Marc Platt („La La Land“). Jonathan Eirich („Death Note“) und Kevin De La Noy („The Dark Knight Rises“) sind die ausführenden Produzenten.

Der achtfache Oscar®-Preisträger Alan Menken („Die Schöne und das Biest“, „Arielle, die Meerjungfrau“) komponierte den Score, der nicht nur Neuaufnahmen der Originalsongs von Menken, Oscar®-Preisträger Howard Ashman („Der kleine Horrorladen“) und Tim Rice („The Lion King“) umfasst, sondern auch zwei neue Songs, die Menken zusammen mit Oscar®-Preisträger Benj Pasek und Justin Paul („La La Land“, „Dear Evan Hansen“) geschrieben hat.
