On January 24th 2024, National Geographic is releasing a brand new original series, “A Real Bug’s Life”, which is inspired by the World of Disney and Pixar’s film, “A Bug’s Life”. Disney has released some new images from the third episode, called “Welcome to the Jungle”.
The series is an incredible adventure into nine different micro bug worlds around the globe, where the forces of nature play out on a miniature scale and where tiny creatures rely on amazing powers and extraordinary alliances to make it through each day. The stakes are high … even if the critters are extraordinarily small.
With new developments in filming technology and narrated by fun and witty guide Awkwafina, follow the incredible stories of the tiny heroes living in worlds beyond the imagination — from a jumping spider looking for a home on the streets of New York to a Costa Rican orchid bee’s first day on the job making perfume!
Full of mind-blowing new behaviors and larger-than-life characters, this family-friendly series shows that “A Real Bug’s Life” can be every bit as fantastical as any animated film.
In the third episode, called “Braving The Backyard”, it’s spring in a Texan backyard, and a new family is moving in. As they put their stamp on the place, a baby Texas unicorn mantis struggles to come of age in her brand-new world, a colony of invasive fire ants have their survival skills pushed to the limit, and a jet-setting monarch butterfly searches for a lifeline on her mammoth migration north. This is the story of bugs surviving and thriving in one of the most unpredictable places on Earth.
Here’s some photos from the third episode:
