Maya the Bee: The Honey Games (2018) Script

[birds singing]

[kids giggling]

[kids laughing]

[hums a tune]

Huh? [whirring noise approaching]



[Maya laughing] Yes, keep going!

Woohoo! [laughs] Maya! But I wanna get off!

Oh, can't we just... [screams]

Willi! Close your mouth! You're slowing us down!



[Ben snickers]

They're getting away! [Drago yelps]

[Drago] Whoa, whoa!

Whoa! [all grunting]

[Drago] Hey, ease up on the feelers!

[Maya] Sorry!

Go, Drago, faster!

You wanna go faster, huh? I'll show you faster!

Maya, stop!

Huh? Faster, Drago, faster!

[Willi whimpers] [giggles]

[gasps] Oh no!

What are you doing!? We can make it!

[Willi] No, Maya don't even... Now, Drago!

[Willi] Maya!

[Drago grunts] [Willi screaming]


[screams approaching]





That was so fun, did you see?

We were flying upside down, and were like... [mimics plane]

You guys were awesome! Now who wants to race again?

Um, uh...

[whispering] We've gotta go clean our leaf.

We've gotta go clean our leaf. Bye Maya!

[Ronnie] Wow, Maya, that was amazing!

You're so fast, you should totally be in the Honey Games!

Thanks, Ronnie, I'd love to, but our hive never gets invited.

Yep, and I think that's a good thing.

I've had it with racing.

Aw Willi, we were just having fun!

You were having fun, Maya. I was having...

[stammers] What's the opposite of fun?

Not-fun? Not-fun. Thanks, Ronnie.

You're welcome.

[Maya] Willi! What?

Tag! [chuckles]

[Willi] Oh, Maya.

Why don't you ever listen?

Tag, you're in. In what?

[sighs] It doesn't matter. Bye, Willi!

[Willi] Bye, Ronnie! Hey, wait for me!

[indistinct chatter]


Gather round children, come and get your honey cakes.

One for you. [gulps]

Here's yours.

[little bee] Hey wait for me!

And for you... Oh! [chuckles] No.

[little bee 2] Oh, happy Harvest, Your Majesty!

Oh! [chuckles] And happy Harvest to you.

Is everything in order, Crawley?

Certainly, ma'am. The honey barrels are being stacked in the Great Hall as we speak.

[feet stamping]


[Pouring Bee shrugs]

Is... is that all of it, Crawley?

Uh, it... It was a short summer, ma'am.


Don't worry, everything will be just fine.

[machinery creaking] [indistinct chatter]

[Maya and Willi laughing]

[Maya] Come on, Willi, we're late.

[Willi] Coming! [Maya woops]

I told you we're going the wrong way.

No we're not! This is the way.

[Maya giggles] Huh?

[both scream] [guards grunt]

[both groan]



[guards] Grr!

Hello, Mr. Important Looking Big Bee, Sir.

Sorry we bumped into you. I'm Maya and this is Willi.

Hmm, indeed.

I am looking for Poppy Meadow. [Maya] Hmm. Huh?

I have a very important message to deliver to the Queen.

[gasps] You're from Buzztropolis!

Very observant.

[Maya gasps] An important message?

That could only mean one thing. Did you hear that, Willi?

Did you hear it? Ahh...

We're going to the Honey Games! We are?

[Willi groans] This is really happening!


Follow me, Mr. What'sa-Face. I'll take you to the Queen!


[Maya giggles] Oh, Maya.

[Beegood] Hmm.

[all cheering]

[Queen] Hurray for Poppy Meadow.

I know it has been a long and difficult harvest for everyone.

You have toiled tirelessly to collect the pollen...

Happy Harvest, Maya!

Happy Harvest!

Come on, this way.

[Queen] ...teamwork, collaboration and community is at the heart of the harvest.

[guard 1 groans] [guard 2 chuckles]

By working together, we will all see it through another year.

[all cheering]

Well done, Poppy Meadow.

I am Sir Beegood the third.

I come from Buzztropolis with good news, direct from the Empress herself.

[gasps] As you know, the glorious Honey Games are about to commence, and your hive has been selected for a great, great honor...

Told you, Willi!

They're inviting us to the Honey Games!

[Beegood] generously contribute half your honey harvest to the Honey Games!

[all gasp] Oh no!

Yay! [woops]

Wait. What?

What? Half our honey? That's nearly 50 percent!

You can't do that! It's not fair!

Maya, no.


It is an honor indeed, Sir Beegood, however, your request is unreasonable.

We can certainly contribute a little honey, but half?

Our hive won't make it through the winter.

You dare refuse the Empress' order?




As the Empress wishes.

[all gasping]

Quite right.


No, wait, Mr. Bigbuzz!

I mean, Sir Bees... [groans] Whatever your name is!

You've made a big mistake!

Oh, Willi, we have to do something.

Well, yeah, someone needs to do something.

Aw, it's gonna be a long, hungry winter.


[Maya] Your Majesty?

We can't let the Empress take our honey!

[scoffs] The Empress will do whatever she wants.

It's not fair!

My big sister doesn't play fair, she never has.

[gasps] She's your sister?

Oh! Well, then it's easy.

If she's your sister, then you can just go talk to her.

[chuckles] She won't listen to me.

Maybe I can help.

No, Maya.

There are some things you can't fix on your own.

Excuse me, ma'am. You're needed in the Great Hall.

Mm. It's not your concern, Maya.

I can help.


I can't believe she's the Queen's Sister.

Yeah, and she's a real meanie bug!

We have to help the Queen! Mm-hm, yep.

Willi, what are you doing? This is an emergency!

Yeah, and this is my emergency pollen!

Anyway, how can we help? We're just two little bees.

Hmm... We go to Buzztropolis!

Oh, sure, we'll just hitch a ride somewhere we've never been and tell a scary Empress we don't even know, "Sorry, but you can't take our honey."

Yeah! That's a great plan, Willi! Come on!

What? Plan? What plan?

Oh, I've got a plan. Come on, Willi!

Oh, Maya!



[Maya] Drago? Hello!

[yawns] No more racing today.

We don't wanna race, we need a ride to Buzztropolis!

Huh? That's a long way. I don't want to go there.

Come on, Drago. Just this once. No, no, no.

Please? Come on Drago. [chuckles] Stop it.

[chuckling] Come on. Come on!

Okay! Okay! I'll do it, I'll do it.


Ready, Willi?

Uh-uh, not this little bee, no...

[screams] Maya!

[Maya] Buzztropolis here we come!

[Queen] Right, we must prepare.

Bronson, count up all the honey barrels in the Great Hall.

Rupert go and tally the reserves.

Yes, ma'am!

Crawley, you... Crawley? Crawley!


Your Majesty! Maya and Willi were seen leaving the meadow!

It looked like they were heading for...


[Maya] Woohoo!

[Willi] Whoa! Whoa!

Whoa, Willi, look at all those insects.

[indistinct chatter]

They're going to the Honey Games.

Yeah, but they are invited.

Whoa, what is that?

That is Buzztropolis.

It's beautiful.

[indistinct chatter]

[chuckles] Good luck, kids. Thanks, Drago.

Come on, Willi. Let's find the Empress!

Uh, no, I'll just wait here with Drago.

Whoa! On second thoughts, coming!

[Maya giggles]

Whoa. Wow.

[Maya giggles] Maya...

[giggles] Hello. Hello!

Whoa! Whoa!

Maya, wait! Well, hurry up, Willi!

[gasps] Whoa!

So pretty!

[pants] This was a mistake.

I know what I'm doing, Willi. Trust me.

Bee best friends forever? [both chuckle]

[both] Buzz buzz buzz!

[both chuckle] Willi, look!


Get your honey treats here! Honey treats?

Must... have... honey treats.




Willi? Willi!

Where are you, Willi?

Hey! Whoops.

Whoops yourself! Step away from the hair, meadow bug.

Sorry, I'm looking for my friend Willi, have you seen him?

Uh... no.

Ah. But we have urgent business with the Empress.

[scoffs] You? With the Empress?

Oh, sure you do, and my uncle's a dung beetle!

Really? [sniffs] You don't smell like dung.


What? Ugh! [giggling]

Stop sniffing me!

Hmm. Want to see the Empress, huh?

Her throne's right around there.

Why don't you just buzz over and talk to her?

Oh! I will. Thanks.


I almost feel sorry for her. Almost.

[all snickering]

[gasps] Wow.

[announcer] All hive representatives with donations to the Empress, please assemble in the arena.

[Maya gasps]

Willi! I was so worried about you.

I was worried about me too.

Now I'm worried I can't breathe. [grunts]

How did you end up in the queue to meet the Empress?

Empress? I thought this was the line for lunch.

[bugles playing a salute]

[crowd applauding]

[salute stops]

Bring forth my gifts. [claps hands]

[bugle salute continues] [crowd cheering]

Please accept our Honey Games offering of fine moth silk, noble Empress.


Here! And here! [giggles]

[Buzzbington groans]

[Buzzbington] Whoa! [crash]


Maya, what do we do?

I've never met an Empress before.

Follow me and put on a brave face.

This is my brave face.

She's actually doing it.

Seriously, I mean like, wow.

You've gotta be brave... [Violet] Hmph! front up to... the Empress.

Or a real Fuzzbrain.

[Maya sings like a bugle]

May I present Hive Ambassador, ♪ Maya the bee ♪ That's me!

Representing the Queen of Poppy Meadow, your sister.

Poppy Meadow, mm?

Come to donate your finest summer Honey?

Uh, that's what I wanted to talk to you about.

We don't have it. [nervous laugh]

What? Is this some kind of a prank?


Eject these meadow grubs. [guards grunt]

Wait! It's not fair, Miss Empressy!

Why should we give you our honey, when you won't even let us compete in the Games?

[all gasp]

[Buzzbington groans]


The child wants to know why. [light chuckle]

[Buzzbington laughs nervously] Because I am the Empress!

That's why! [Willi shudders]

How dare my sister send you here empty-handed?

No, no, no. She didn't. Uh... um... [stammers]

Sir Willington, may I please have the Queen's royal gift to the Empress? Huh? The what?

Give me the honey treat.


One moment, Miss Empressy.

Willi, give it to me now!

[both groan]

[wet thud] [Queen grunts]


[all gasp]

Let me help you. No! Stay away!

[both groan]

Willi, help!

[all groaning and grunting]

[crash] [all gasp]

Ha! Typical meadow bug.

[Queen] Maya? Oh.

[nervous chuckle]

I've never been so humiliated in my life, Beatrice!

She must be punished!

I will talk to her, Catherine.

She assaults the Empress and you'll talk to her?

This is why your hive is a laughing stock.

We are not! Really?

No order. No rules.

Little bees who talk out of turn. [grunts] Grr!

And you wonder why I don't invite you to the Honey Games.

[gasps] Maybe you're scared we'll win.

[cackling] Oh, please.

The Honey Games are for elite bugs.

You never had what it takes, and by the looks of this bumble bug, neither does she.

Maya is one of my best bees.

Ha! She's no match for the best of Buzztropolis.

I am too! And so is Willi! Maya!

[all gasp] [Maya] It's true.

Poppy Meadow bees are braver and faster and nicer than any of you city bees!

Maya, hush. [Empress] No, no, no.

If your little bee is so confident, I invite her and her friend to compete in the Games.



If they win, all is forgiven.

But if they lose, I'll make an example of this pair and take all your summer honey.

Every last drop.

But our hive won't last the winter!

Poppy Meadow doesn't even have a team! We're not prepared.

[claps hands] Beegood, assemble a squad of Poppy Meadow's most gifted bugs immediately.

[sighs] Yes, your regal-ness. Of course.

Let the games begin.

I am very disappointed in you, Maya.

I specifically asked you not to get involved.

I know. I just wanted to help.

But I didn't, did I?

You have to stop buzzing in, thinking you know what's best.

I'm so sorry, Miss Queen.


Well, we're here now.

And you can't win these Games on your own.

You must listen to your team.

I will. I promise.

[guard clears throat]

Time to go, ma'am.

I believe in you, Maya.

I know you can make Poppy Meadow proud.



[Queen] Willi? Huh?

Maya, make sure you stick together.

And good luck. [Willi giggles nervously]


[sighs] Willi, the whole hive is depending on us.

Hmm, yeah.

But hey, this won't be so hard.

I mean, you are the fastest racer in Poppy Meadow.

[giggles] Whoa. The Honey Games Village.

[announcer] All bugs report to the gathering place.

Orientation will commence in five minutes.

Come on! Oh, hey, wait for me.

[Maya chuckles]

You're right Willi, we can do this.

We just need to put our best foot forward.

Uh, but which one is my best foot?



Hey, wait for me! Whoa!

Willi, look at all the different bugs!

[bugs cheer]

Look! Willi? [Willi screams]



[choir singing]


Can I help you?


Hello? Do you speak, goggle-bug?

Ahh. Hi.

I'm Willi, and this is my best foot.

Or is it this one? [chuckling]

[gong chimes]

Ugh! Let's buzz.

[chuckles] Mm. Willi! There you are!


[gasps] That looks like our flag!

Um, where's our team?

[chuckles] The weird new bugs?

They're hiding down at Skeeter Swamp.

Good luck with that bunch.

[bugles playing a salute]

Good evening, bugs.

Welcome to the Honey Games Village.

I am Games Master Beegood.

[royal music]

[Maya] Flip! [gasps]

[Maya] Hey Flip, over here!

Maya! Fancy seein' you ‘ere little buzzer!

[Beegood clears his throat]

Thank you.

Over the next three days, teams representing the five meadows will compete against each other.

At the end of each day, one team will be eliminated.

This year's teams are...

Team Buggy Hollow! [cheering]

Team Burly Bluff!

Team Aphid Gorge!

Team Tropolis!

And finally, the surprising addition to this year's lineup, Team Poppy Meadow.

[gasps] That's us Willi!

On the final day, the two remaining teams will compete in front of the Empress...

...for The Honey Cup!

[gasps and applause]

Willi, we're gonna win that cup.

[Violet chuckles]

We're gonna win that cup.

Bye Willi.


[sighs] So, where's our cabin?

Over here.

Uh, I don't know.

It doesn't look very safe. [Flip] Hello little ones.

[Maya] Flip!

Are you lost?

We're looking for Team Poppy's cabin.

Oh, you won't find it up there. That's Slug Hill, a nasty place.

It's out of bounds. Your cabin's just over there.

Who's on our team, Flip?

They said it would be the finest bugs in Poppy Meadow.

Well, I hope we know some of them.

There's only one way to find out.

Thanks, Flip! Come on Willi!

[Maya giggles] Good luck you two!

Poppy Meadow believes in you, kiddo!

Hello, anybody there?


[both scream] [Willi gasps]

Uh, guys. You can come out.

It's, like, not Violet.

Maya, quick, hide!

Uh, maybe I'm in the wrong place.

I bet it's one of her friends.

Beat it, city bee! This cave's for Poppy Meadow bugs only!

I am a Poppy Meadow bug!


She doesn't smell like one of Violet's friends.

Violet's not my friend. Lucky you.

That girl's meaner than a scorpion that stung its own backside.

And she's mean too.

And she thinks she's, like, so funny, but she's so not.

She won't be laughing when we win that golden cup.

Guys wait, she's serious.

No one thinks we can win.

But aren't you the finest bugs in Poppy Meadow?

[all laugh]

That's so funny.

We're only here because Beegood said we'd won a trip to the Honey Games.

He never told us we had to compete.

Don't stress, the sooner we lose the sooner we can go home.

What? No! I have to win.

We have to win!

Anyway, what's your name little bee?

I'm Maya, and that's my friend Willi.

Hi. Maya, run now! What's your name?

I'm Craig, pleased to meet... [gasps]

Don't worry about Craig, he hates germs.

I'm sorry little bee, I just don't shake hands, unless they're mine.

The spider up there is Spinder. She's a vegetarian.

If it's got a face, I don't eat it.

[Willi whimpers]

And the angry little bedbug over there is Bedford.


Just one thing with him, sometimes he bites.

[gasps] Strangers! Save yourselves.

[both] Hut hut hut hut hut hut hut!

Privates Arnie and Barney reporting for Games duty, sir!

What're you two doing here?

Well, Maya, a little bird told us you might need some help.

And then it tried to eat us.

It was actually quite a big bird.

So, here we are, peak physical specimens.

Higher! Faster.

Stronger! Weaker.

[Arnie] Beatle, sunshine, raindrop.

[Barney] Now you're just listing words, Arnie, but who needs words? Not me, Barney.

Actions speak louder than words.

Burpees! [both belch]

Chin ups!

Feel the burn. Feel the burn!

It's burning.

And shake it off.

These guys are strange.

Don't worry, they'll grow on you.

Huh? Grow on us?

Like fungus? [groans]

You can sleep over there. [chuckles nervously]

Good night! Hut hut hut hut hut hut!


We can't win with these bugs.

We can do this. Every bug has a talent.


I've got my eyes on you, both of them.

[teeth chatter]

[crowd cheering]

[Mantis] Good morning bugs!

And welcome to day one of competition!

Today's event is Dodge Ball!

The team with the fewest points at day's end will be eliminated.

[Beegood] First round, team Burly Bluff versus team Poppy Meadow.

Teams into position.

Seriously? Even their muscles have muscles.

This should be good.


We'll be great, just follow my lead. Everyone ready?

[blows whistle] Play ball!

[thudding and grunting]



Okay time out, time out!

Huh? What did he...? What?

[gasps] Arnie how did you do that?

As long as you make a capital T, you put this hand on top of this hand, the game stops.

Show me again!

Oh sure, you take this hand and...


Extra time... [gasps]

[both moan]

[Willi groans]

[Beegood] Team Burly Bluff win!

[snickering] Boom, show me the love.

[Beegood] Team Burly Bluff versus Team Tropolis!

[crowd cheering]


Well, well, more little bugs.

Oh, poor Violet, I can't watch.

[whistle blows]

[voice slowed down] Oh, no!

[crowd gasping]


Oh no.

[whistle blows]

[Beegood] Team Tropolis wins!



Oh, she's really good.

[sighs] She sure is.

We're good too!

If we work together, we can achieve anything.

[groans] I think motivational speaking is, like, her thing.

[Beegood] Team Buggy Hollow versus Team Aphid Gorge!

Aww, how cute.

Don't worry, little baby bugs. We'll go easy on you.


Let's get ‘em all!

[all gasp]

[whistle blows]


[Beegood] Team Tropolis versus Team Poppy Meadow!

[crowd cheering]

[chuckles] Looking a bit off-color, Team Poppy.


Team Tropolis attack!

Let's go, Team Poppy!


[chuckles then grunts]




Craig, throw the pollen!

[sighs] I'm so out of here. [Maya] Spinder!

Bedford, you have to move.


Ha! Great team you got there, Maya!



[both groan]

You saved me.

You're my special friend now.

Arnie! Barney! Help Spinder!

[both] Aye, aye, Captain.

What did she say? She said, "Help spin her."

Ten-four, bug daddy! Spin her!

Spin her, now!


[Arnie] Incoming! [Barney] Outgoing! [giggles]




Victory to Team Tropolis!

[crowd cheering] Ha!

Oh, we lost again.

But look, we got some points.


[Craig] We got points!

We've got points!

We got points! Uh, not that I care.


But, is it enough?

[Team Tropolis cheering]

[gong chimes]

And so ends day one of competition.

You should all be very proud.

Unfortunately, one team had to finish last and today, that team is...

Buggy Hollow... Oh, what?

...who finished just one point below Team Poppy.

We made it through?

We made it through! Ha, yes! Yeah! Woohoo!

[chuckles and woops]

Yes! [Willi woops]

Go team! Let's get some food and celebrate!

[yawns] I'm gonna go lie down.

Yep. Nighty-night. [Barney snores]

[Spinder sighs] See you back at camp, Maya.

[Barney] I gotta sleep.

Huh. Hmm.

Should we be worried?

About her?

[scoffs] Hardly.


Every bug has a weakness.

[crickets chirping]

[Empress chomps on treats]

[Beegood] Your Empressness, I have the team scores after Day One.

Excellent. We're first.

[Crawley panting]

The team scores, Your Majesty.

Excellent! We're not last.

[groans] Ew!


Taste it, Willi. Trying new things is good.

But I don't like new things. I like pollen.

[little bugs cheering]

[Violet] I have pollen, Willi.

Oh... okay.

Team Tropolis' food is flown in specially for us.

Wanna join me?

Ah! Violet, thank you! [slurps]

Hey, come on, Maya!

Yes, Maya. Please, take a seat.

Hmm. Okay, thanks, Violet.

Sorry, that's Chelsea's spot. Huh?


Oh, sorry.

Oops. That's Sandra's.


Spotty, Dotty and Lotty are there.



That's reserved for Brian.

[grunts] Hey! Come back here dinner! Hey!

Oh gee, looks like there's no room for you.

Why are you being mean?

Oh, I'm sorry how rude.

Here, have some delicious, golden pollen.

[Maya gasps]

Oh, dear. I must have eaten it all.


Ow! My hand! [Willi] What?

Maya, what did you do?

Nothing. [Violet pretends to sob]

It hurts! It hurts!

What's wrong, my little honey-puff?

She smashed my hand!

That's not true!

[sobbing continues]

Are you accusing my daughter of lying, meadow bug?

"Daughter"? "Daughter"?

[voice trembling] Maybe if she said sorry, I could forgive her.

Very well. Apologize, Maya.

[groans] But I...

Maya, just say sorry.


[clears throat] Violet, I'm sorry.

But I didn't do anything! [all gasp]

[sobbing] She's mean, Daddy!

I knew you were a bother the moment I laid eyes on you, little bee.

What? No, I just...

Silence! This is your first and last warning!

Any more trouble from you and you're out of the Games.

But I...

Uh, what she's trying to say is she's really sorry.

Aren't you, Maya?

[muffled] No I'm not!

[Violet] Thanks, Willi.

You're a pal.


But... Oh, Maya.


You mixed-up weirdos got lucky today, but tomorrow, you're... ow, ow, ow... out of here.


"My name's Violet and I think I'm so super cool, with my purple hair and my fancy pollen."




[exhales deeply]

[Willi] Maya?

Come back, please?



I don't think your new pal likes me.

Violet's nice. Give her a chance.

Nice? She called Team Poppy a mixed up bunch of weirdos.

I'm sure that was a... compliment.


Hey, didn't you say that every bug has a talent?

Well maybe our talent is being... different. [chuckles]


Hey, Bee friends forever?

[both chuckle]

I'm glad you're here with me, Willi.

Me too, Maya.

Me too.

[all snoring]

[horn blowing]


[both] Sir, yes, sir!

[both gasp]

Wakey-wakey, Team Poppy.

Your training session starts now!

Huh? What are you talking about?

Yesterday was just a fluke, Maya!

I'm outta here. Excuse me.

Wait, you can't just give up. Pardon me.

[moans] What's the point of even trying?

Don't you get it, Maya?

Beegood only picked us because we're hopeless at everything.

That's not true.

Spinder, I want you to catch this pebble with your web.

Really? Sounds kinda stupid.

But okay.

I know you can do it. Ready?



It's raining in my soul right now.

You just need a little more practice, that's all.

What about you, Craig?

Show us what great scuttlers roaches are.


That was great! You didn't even notice the roof was dirty.

[gasps] [thud]

Your turn, Bedford. What's your special skill?

I like to dance.

Ooh, and singing. I like singing best.

Maya, it's no use, we're just not good enough.

Come on, sleepy bugs!

We've got two hours until the Games start.

If we wanna win it, we gotta be ready!

Oh no, she's doing it again.

[blows whistle]

[Mantis] Welcome to Willow Tree Washout!

Teams will race to the top of the tree, avoiding the falling dew drops.

Only one member from each team needs to cross the finish line.

Uh... it's too high.

Don't be afraid, Bedford, I'll be right here with you.

And remember your training, guys.

What training?

You remember any training? Nope.

[Mantis] Ready, set...

[all grunt]

[blows whistle] Go.

Go! Go! Go! Let's go!


And Team Tropolis taking the early lead.

Hmm? [screams]

[crowd gasping]

There goes part of their team.

Oh, the Aphids have three members left.

Faster, guys!

We're not gonna make it! I gotta get going.

What? You can't leave us.

[sighs] I have to.

Maya, wait!

Maya, what are you doing?

[all gasp]

[Mantis] Looks like Maya has cut her team loose.

To victory!

This is fun. Hey, how you doing?




[Mantis] Team Poppy continue to struggle.

[sighs] Thanks for your help, Maya.


[Mantis] Team Tropolis down to their captain.



Too slow, meadow bug!

[grunts] [Aphid chuckles]


[chuckling] Yay!

Violet, shake your stinger!

[Violet panting]

[both grunt]

First place, Aphid Gorge.

[Aphids cheering]

Second, my snail-footed daughter Violet and her Team Tropolis.

And third...

Ugh! Team Poppy Meadow.

Woohoo! Yes! [laughs]

Sorry, Daddy.

Mm. I should hope so.


We did it! We did it! We made it through!

You made it through.

[Maya] What? What do you mean?

Where are you going?

You left us behind. So much for teamwork.


But... but I had to.

[Crawley panting]

Sweet honey cakes! We're in the last three.

Sweet honey cakes! They're in the last three?

Your daughter better not fail me, Beegood.


The pride of Buzztropolis is at stake. [grunts]

[gulps] Yes, Your Majesty, of course, of course.

Hello? Everyone?

I'm sorry that I left... [Willi] Maya?

It's okay.

It's not okay.

I shouldn't have buzzed off on everyone.

It's just if I don't win the Games...

The Empress will take your honey, Willi told us.

Yep. Mm-hm.

[sighs] Hmm.

Maya, why didn't you say something?

[sighs] I don't know.


I didn't want to worry you.

But we're here for you, Maya.

I'm here. I'm here.

You're here. They're here.

He's here. He's here too.

[both] We're here for you.

Yeah, that's what teams are for.

You're right.


[Spinder chuckles]


Go Team Poppy!

[all chuckle]

[indistinct chatter]

[Mantis] Welcome to the Maze of the Megabeast!

Teams will have to navigate their way through the many paths of the maze to the exit at the north end.

Flying is not permitted in this event.

And beware.

Somewhere within lurks the mysterious...

Megabeast. [all gasp]

Wake the beast at your peril.

Racers, take your marks.

[whistle blows] [Maya] Go!

[all coughing]

Eat... Our...


Willi, wait!

Spinder, spin me some web.

We need to stay together. Huh?

This way, team.

[grunting and panting]



Oh no!

Where are they? Maya?

[echoing] Maya?

This way!

Um, Violet, I think the exit's at the north end.

So, since the sun's...

Just let me do the thinking, okay?

[all sighing]

[all gasp]

[distant bird tweeting]

Where's Willi?

Hmm? Hang on a minute.


Maya, are you there?

[groans] Maya?

[echoing] Maya?

Willi? Willi! Willi! [team grunting]

[low growl]

Willi! Over here!

I think we found the Megabeast.

Careful, Willi, don't wake it.


[low growl]

[Willi] Whoa!


[giggles] It's not as scary as it looks.

[roars] [all scream]

[crowd gasps]

It sounds like someone's found the Megabeast.

[all scream]

[all scream]

[Willi groans]

Follow that Megabeast!

[Arnie and Barney panting]

I don't understand. We should be there now.

Um, Violet, that's what I was trying to tell you.

If we just go north then...

I have had it with this team! All you do is slow me down!

Uh, can you guys hear that? [rumbling approaching]

The only thing you should listen to is the sound of my...

[Violet screams]

[Team Poppy panting]

[both scream]

Jump, Willi!



[Mantis] Team Poppy are first to cross the line.

We made it! [Team Poppy cheers]


Not... so... fast!

I think you'll find I beat them.

Actually, it was first team over the line.

[Mantis] And it's Team Tropolis in second place.

[panting] No! I am Team Tropolis!

Those slug bugs are nothing without me!

Huh? Excuse me?

Hmph! Chelsea, Sandra?

I'm your captain!

Daddy, wait. I... I can explain!

Save it! Excuses are for losers!

I thought my daughter was a winner!

But I am!

I am a winner.

[Mantis] Team Poppy and Team Tropolis are our grand finalists. [all cheering]

[Mantis] This calls for a celebration!


[Empress] Team Poppy?

How could you let this happen, Beegood?

This is absolutely...

...wonderful news!

[Crawley] Uh...

Pack your pollen, Crawley! We're off to the Honey Games!

Hurray! [chuckles]

[jazzy music playing]

Nice spread!

♪ Dance, dance, dance, dance ♪ Maya, don't let her get to you.

Yeah, she'll just get you in trouble.

[sighs] Come on, let's enjoy the party.

Oh yeah. Hey, Flip!

Hi, Maya!

Yeah. [chuckles]

Mind if I cut in?

[giggles nervously] Yes.

Come on, Willi.

Hey! [groans]

[both chuckling]

We're friends, right, Willi?

We're friends? Of course we're friends, silly!

[both chuckling]

[Violet] And friends help each other, yeah?

And I gave you all that pollen...

[grumbles] ...remember?

Hi, Willi. He's dancing with me.

Uh-uh. He's dancing with me.

[Conga leader] No, he's dancing with us!


Why don't you leave us alone?

Because you don't belong here.

The Honey Games are for the best of the best.

And you loser bugs are a joke.

We'll see who's laughing after the grand final tomorrow.

[chuckles] Puh-lease.

You mixed up meadow bugs don't stand a chance.

Why can't you just play fair and leave Team Poppy alone?


Tell you what.

I'll leave your precious Team Poppy alone, if you can beat me in a race down Slug Hill, right now.

No. It's out of bounds.

I'm really going to enjoy eating all your summer honey.


[sighs] Okay. I'll do it.


[Violet] Let's make it interesting.

Or are you a scaredy-bug? Hmph!


[wind whistling]


Sandra will call out when we pass the finish line.

[exhales deeply]

Ready, set, go!



[music continues]

[blows horn]

Maya and Violet are racing down Slug Hill!

[all gasp]

Oh no.

[both grunt]

See you at the finish line, loser bug!

Not if I see you first!


Am I at the finish line yet?

[gasps and screams]

[crash] Oh, dear!

Oh, Maya!

[Maya groans]

Who... is.... responsible... for this?



But I wasn't! I mean... I'm... I didn't!


Violet tricked me, again!

Silence! You broke the Honey Cup!

I warned you, little bee.

You are hereby expelled from the Honey Games!

No, please.


Oh no.

[sobs quietly]


What happened?

Violet happened!

She got me kicked out of the Games.

What? She wouldn't.

[sighs] Can't you see what she's doing?

I'm sure it's just a misunderstanding.

No, Willi.

It's up to you now.

You have to stay here and save our honey.

Maya, wait!


[wind whistling]



[violin music playing] [gasps]

[Flip hums along to music]


Hello there, little miss.

I thought I'd find you out here, gazing at the stars.

They... kicked me out. Mm, so I heard.

Come on, sit down, tell old Flip about it.

Flip, I broke the Honey Cup.

But... but the race down Slug Hill wasn't even my idea.

[sighs] You went out of bounds. That's against the rules, Maya.

[sniffs] Violet breaks the rules all the time.

Yes, but you're not Violet.

I just wanted to make things right. [sobs]

I know, you wanna fix all the problems in the meadow.

But you can't do it all on your own, little buzzer.

You need to slow down and listen to other bugs.

Okay. I'm listening, Flip.

Maya, you gotta remember.

Good little bees don't blame others for their mistakes.

So, let's think back.

Where did all your troubles begin?

[sighs] I didn't listen to the Queen... and I messed everything up when I went to see the Empress.

Well, a bug that wants to make things right would take responsibility for the part they've played.

Don't you think?

Hmm. They would. Thanks, Flip.

Good luck, Maya.

[Mantis] Ladybugs and gentlebees!

Welcome to the Honey Games Grand Final!

[crowd cheering]

May I proudly present Her Majesty, the Empress of Buzztropolis!

[crowd cheering] [scoffs]

In our final event, the remaining two teams must navigate the Dragonfly Rush, and the Mudsucker Muddle and then climb the summit of Mount Stumpy!

[clap of thunder]

The competitors must then retrieve the ruby pollen from the Nani Nani Orchid!

The first team to cross the line with the ruby pollen, will win the Honey Cup!

[all cheering]

The losing team will receive these novelty mugs! [chuckles]

[mug clatters]

And now, introducing our first grand finalists... the favorites... Mm-hm.

...Team Tropolis!

[crowd cheering]

Team Poppy are gonna wish they stayed in their swamp.

And this year's surprising wild card...

Team Poppy!

[crowd cheering]

Go, Poppy Meadow!

Oh, great! No one turned up. Oh, Arnie?

Yes, sir? [gasps]

Oh, they turned up. Everybody's here.

Where's Maya?


She's been disqualified.

[gasps] Disqualified? On what grounds?

Oh, Beatrice, once again, you and your hive have proven to be a disgrace.

But... [Maya] Miss Empress?

[crowd gasps]

Oh. [chuckles] Little meadow bug.

You just don't give up, do you?

Please, hear me out.

It's not the Queen's fault.

Oh. [chuckles] Really?

Then who's fault is it?


I'm the one who came to Buzztropolis and made a mess of everything.

I didn't listen to you, Your Majesty.

And in the Games...

I didn't listen to my team. They trusted me and... and I let them down.

I'm so sorry.

And I'm so sorry to you, Miss Empress, for not showing you respect.

Please don't punish our hive because of me.

[bug] Give her a chance!

[crowd shouting in agreement]

How touching.

Such honesty should be rewarded.

Little bee, I'm going to give you a second chance to compete in the final.

[all cheering]

But if you lose, we will still take all your summer honey.

[everyone gasps]

This summer, next summer, and every summer after that.

[Queen] Never! [Empress gasps]

I should've stood up to you a long time ago.

[everyone gasps]

We accept your challenge. And we will win!

You can do it, Maya.

[Willi] No.

We can do it.

That's what friends do, right?

[Bedford] Maya?

You're the first bug that's ever believed in us.

Oh, group hug!

[all chuckling]

Right, group hug!

Is she serious?

Competitors, to the starting line.

What are you, petal? I'm a winner, Daddy.

Right. And what do winners do?

They win, whatever it takes.

Exactly. When you get to Mount Stumpy, take the secret tunnel on the right.

What? What if we get caught?

I'm the Games Master, sweet leaf, you won't get caught.

Racers, take your marks!

[crowd cheering]

Get set!

Let's buzz these bugs! Ow!

Don't grab their feelers. Steer by leaning your body.

Come on!

Let's go!

I'm flying!

Hey, kid, let go! [all groaning]

[gasps] Let go of their feelers!

Go! Move move move!

[Violet] Let's go!

Team Poppy are taking an early lead!


[Mantis] But Team Tropolis are not giving up without a fight.

[Maya woops]



[Violet] Too slow! [laughs]

Should've stayed in bed, bugs!

[Bedford screams]

Spinder, save him!

[Maya] You can do it!

[frog croaks]


Spinder, you saved me.

I did it. I did it!

[woops] Go, Spinder!

Thank you, Spinder.

[Mantis] And as they come up to the Mudsucker Muddle, it's Team Tropolis, a bee's knee in front.


[all groaning]

[Maya panting]


Ugh! So dirty. I can't, Maya. I can't. [groans]

Let's help him.

[Barney] Come on, buddy. [Craig whimpers]

[Maya] That's it!


Craig! [Arnie] That's not good.

[Craig spluttering]

I'm dirty and muddy and...

I love it! [woops]

[laughs] I love it! [woops]

I am in control.

[clap of thunder]

I'm in control!

I'm in control! [screams]

I'm not in control!

Frozen aphid pops! It's raining sky ice!

Everyone, under there!


Maya! [grunts]

[all panting]

Where's Willi?




This way.

[nervous laugh] It's a bit dark.

Get in there, wobble grubs!


[thunder rumbling]



What are you doing?

We're winning, Willi.

And you're gonna help us. Huh?

Tell Maya you've got a sore wing.

That'll slow her down.


You'd do it for me, wouldn't you?

[Willi stammers]

[chuckles] Thought so.



What's wrong?

I'm hurt.

I'm hurt that Violet wanted me to lie to my best friend.

They've taken a short cut!

[all gasp] Oh, the cheeky cheaters.

We don't have a chance! We don't have a chance!

We don't need a chance. We've got each other.

Let's win this, fair and square.

Oh, yeah.

Come on. Everybody, follow her!

Let's go, guys.

Violet do we have to go this way?

It's so creepy! Just be quiet and follow me!


[sinister cackling]

[all scream]

[clap of thunder]

Spread out, the orchid's up here somewhere!

[Arnie] Let's go. [Craig] We've got no chance!

[Barney] We're never gonna find it.

[Arnie] You're so negative. Arnie! We found it!

Wow! Are you looking at this?

Yeah, and it's beautiful.

Barney, we found it! I'll get Maya.

You wait here, and don't touch anything!

Maya! Up here! We found the...!

[muffled shouting] [wind whistling]

What's he saying? I can't hear him.

I speak sign language. He says he's found the flower.

This way, everybody, single file, or no file at all.

This way to see the flower.

[all] Whoa!

I thought there'd be, like, more.

[Barney belches loudly]

What? Oh Barney, you didn't!


We did it!

[clap of thunder] [Willi] Whoa!

Uh, we should get going!

[Violet] Help!


Hey, hey, that's Violet. It sounds like she's in trouble!

[Violet] Help!

But we're so close to winning! And what if she's tricking us?

What if she's not?


[sinister cackle]

Got ourselves in a sticky situation, have we?

[screams] Someone do something!


Hey! Let them go!

[cackles] Be gone, raggedy bugs.

My dinner's getting cold. [screams]

We have to do something!


Oh, you naughty bugs!

Arnie, Barney, create a diversion!

Ten-four, Sergeant. I mean nurse!

I mean coach! 10-4, coach!

[Barney] Diverting a creation now!

[Arnie and Barney] Hut! Hut! Spinder, sling that web!



[Maya] Craig, Bedford, scuttle and chomp!

Scuttle and chomp! [teeth chatter]

[Craig whimpers]

[Maya] Help them out!


[all gasp]

Nowhere to run now! [cackles]

You were winning.

Because you needed our help.

And that's what real friends do, they help each other.

They pick you up when you're down.

Put me down! Stop! Okay. Whoa!

[everyone chuckles]


I'm sorry I was mean to you.

It's okay. No, it's not.

I'm really sorry.

[chuckles] Thanks, Violet.

Come on, we've got a race to finish!

You're on.

Oh, the thunder's passed, but these two teams are still storming on!

And who will be the first back into the arena?

Oh, here they come now!

And it's both teams neck and neck.

[woops] How exciting!

Woohoo! Team Poppy have won it, for the first time ever!

Team Poppy?

Violet, what have you done!?

Go, Poppy! [chuckles] Go Team Poppy!

[all cheering]

A-ha! They do not have the ruby pollen!

No pollen, no victory!

Daddy, enough. [Beegood] What?

We cheated.

I cheated.


[crowd] Boo! They cheated?

[crowd shouting]

Team Poppy saved us!

They deserve to win.

[crowd cheers] No they do not.

Hey, Beegood! I've got one thing to say to you... [belches]

Use your words, Barney. Use your words.


Oh! The Nani Nani pollen! They have done it!

[crowd gasps] [gasps]

[crowd cheers] They won! They won!





Shh. [crowd goes silent]


Catherine, Team Poppy have won, fair and square.

[stammers] I say who wins. I am the Empress and I...

Yes, you are the Empress. And I am your sister.

When is enough, enough?

You don't want our honey. You have everything you need.

Look around.

Do what you know is right.

I can't believe I'm saying this...

Team Poppy wins.

[crowd cheering] Yes! Woohoo!

We won!

No! Your Majesty!

Oh, shush, Beegood.

Seems your little bee has what it takes after all.

Yeah! We did it!

Team Poppy are the Honey Games champions!
