    Disneynature has released its sixth Earth Day feature film this time based on one of my favorite species, monkey's! MONKEY KINGDOM follows a pack of Macaques struggling with social structures. We have Raja the king trying to keep his kingdom away from outside distractions, including humans, and Maya who struggles being a lower class monkey. Like most of the Disneynature films, this tries to tell us a story, and in some cases it does, some it misses the mark, but it is overall visually stunning.
