News
Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Bee Movie on 11th March 2008. This computer animated film follows the adventures of Barry B.

Shocked to discover that humans have been stealing and eating the bee’s honey for centuries, Barry ultimately realizes that his true calling in life is to set the world right by suing the human race. That is until the ensuing chaos upsets the very balance of nature. It is up to Barry to prove that even a little bee can spell big changes in the world…
