Barry B Benson (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Jerry Seinfeld), a recent college graduate, is a bee who wants more out of life than the inevitable career that awaits him and every other worker in New Hive City - a job at Honex producing honey. Barry leaps at the chance to explore the world outside the hive. It's beyond his wildest dreams especially when he meets a spirited Manhattan florist named Vanessa (Oscar® winner Renee Zellweger). But then he breaks one of the cardinal rules of beedom and he talks to her.
A friendship quickly develops and Barry gets a crash course in the ways of the human race. When he discovers that anyone can buy honey right off the grocery store shelf, he is shocked that people are stealing the bees' unique creation and making money from it. Outraged, he decides to avenge this injustice by suing the human race.
BEE MOVIE is creator Jerry Seinfeld's first venture into feature animation, a labour of love for the acclaimed stand-up comedian, who not only voices the central character but also co-wrote the screenplay and serves as producer.
