With Disneynature's Bears just around the corner, we have yet another Earth Day treat in store with Monkey Kingdom, out next Earth Day. This time around they are focusing on a newborn monkey and its mother as they struggle to survive within the competitive social hierarchy of the Temple Troop, a dynamic group of monkeys who live in ancient ruins found deep within the jungles of South Asia.
Monkey Kingdom is directed by Mark Linfield and Alastair Fothergill (both of Chimpanzee and Earth). 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. Disneynature releases their next documentary on April 17th, 2015.
Looks cute, right?
