This year Disneynature’s concentrating on Bears, but next year it’s all about the monkeys. Disneynature’s sixth theatrical release, Monkey Kingdom, will open in theaters on Earth Day 2015 with Mark Linfield and Alastair Fothergill directing. The first four Disneynature releases are in the top five among feature-length nature films, with film number five in the series – Bears – entering theaters on April 18, 2014.
 
The Plot:
 
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.
