Disneynature’s MONKEY KINGDOM Trailer


The Mouse House’s Disneynature line will release their fifth film Bears next week, but the studio is already looking ahead to its 2015 Earth Day documentary, Monkey Kingdom.

The trailer gives us our first look at a tribe of monkeys living in the jungles of South Asia and features the song “Team” by Lorde.

Directed by Mark Linfield and co-directed by Alastair Fothergill who previously collaborated on Disneynature’s Chimpanzee, Monkey Kingdom hits the big screen April 17, 2015.

Watch the trailer below that showcases all the cuteness of monkeykind.

Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom spotlights the gripping reality of a newborn monkey and its mother, struggling to survive within the competitive social hierarchy of the Temple Troop, a dynamic group of monkeys who live in ancient ruins found deep in the storied jungles of South Asia, alongside a rich cast of forest characters. Life is grand, food is plentiful and safety is assured if you’re lucky enough to be born on the higher rungs of the Troop’s social ladder. But this young mother and her infant find themselves in a constant state of hunger, dodging threats from higher-ranking monkeys determined to keep them on their assigned rung. It’ll take a lot of ingenuity, hard work—and a little luck—if this little family hopes to change their place in the world.
