Studio 100 Media has started production on a second movie about Maya the Bee.
Maya the Bee 2 – Honey Games is planned to make its debut in 2017, and will be produced by Studio 100 Media in co-production with Australian production company Studio B Animation and in association with Flying Bark Productions.
Patrick Elmendorff, producer and CEO of Studio 100 Media, said: “We are delighted to add another chapter to Maya the Bee’s success story.
“We sold our first Maya Movie to more than 160 countries worldwide and already have presales of Maya the Bee 2 – The Honey Games to South Korea, Turkey, the Middle East and also to TV channels like ORF.”
The new film will focus on Maya’s adventures and her buggy meadow friends.
“For this new movie we gladly renew our successful collaboration with our previous partners ZDF and Universum Film and hope that Maya’s brand-new adventure will entertain children and families worldwide just like the first movie already did and still does,” added Elmendorff.
The first film hit cinemas in 2014, which is based on a German children’s novel that was published back in 1912.
