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
