Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has confirmed our earlier report that Disneynature’s newest release, Monkey Kingdom, will be available to own on Blu-ray combo pack, Disney Movies Anywhere and Digital HD on September 15, 2015. In addition, they have announced that for every digital and Blu-ray combo pack sold during the first week of sales, Disneynature will make a donation to Conservation International to help product endangered species in their natural habitat by supporting conservation projects across Indonesia, Cambodia and Sri Lanka.
Life is an adventure for Maya, the clever and resourceful blonde-bobbed monkey in “Monkey Kingdom, Disneynature’s new feature film set among ancient ruins in the storied jungles of South Asia. Maya’s world is
forever changed when she welcomes her son, Kip, into her complicated extended family. Like all families, Maya’s has more than its share of colorful personalities — and she’s determined to give her son a leg up in the world. When their longtime home at Castle Rock is taken over by powerful neighboring monkeys, Maya’s whole family is forced to relocate, and she uses her street smarts and ingenuity to lead them to untapped resources amidst strange new creatures and unsettling surroundings. Ultimately, they will all have to work together to reclaim Castle Rock, where Maya can hopefully realize her dreams for her son’s future.
Promotion for the upcoming Disneynature film Monkey Kingdom (April 17, 2015) has been lackluster at best considering its release is less than a week away, but we finally have our first official clips from the film — as brief as they are — featuring narrator Tina Fey, which you can find embedded below.
We have also learned that the original song featured in the film is titled ‘It’s Our World’ and is performed by ‘The Voice’ season five runner-up, Jacquie Lee. The song was written by Matthew Tishler, Felicia Barton and Aaron Benward and will be released digitally on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. Disney Music will contribute a portion of each sale from the single — through May 12 — to the film’s benefactor, Conservation International.
