About the movie
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.

Did we like it?
We loved it. Let me start by saying that my son was skeptical about watching a movie about a princess. He was not really into Frozen, because well tweens are like that. However, this is not a princess movie. Moana is a warrior. She is the a tomboy that will win boys are girls heart.
Now about the movie. Without spoilers I can tell you I think this movie deserves at least one Oscar. The best Original Song on a movie. The soundtrack is amazing. I downloaded it already because I want to sing along on my way to work.
The story line is great. You can see how all the research the producers made about Polynesian culture paid off. The movie has a great message and inspire family values. Even my hubby that is a though cookie when it comes to animated movies loved it.
Warning! You will fall in love with HeiHei and all the characters...
