Moana is a visual masterpiece, and if that’s not enough, the story is uplifting and we have a new Disney princess. And not a sappy princess of old, but a determined, daring, role-model kind of girl who will steal hearts everywhere. And, this is the first Disney Princess without a love interest. Can I get an Amen? It’s about time!! Moana stands on her own and I can’t wait to watch her story unfold!
How about music written by Tony®-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton!!!!!), Grammy®-winning composer Mark Mancina (Tarzan, The Lion King) and Opetaia Foa‘i (founder and lead singer of the world music award-winning band Te Vaka.)
I just can’t wait! Moana is voiced by the lovely new-comer and Native Hawaiian Auli‘i Cravalho, who is joined by Dwayne Johnson who voices the once-mighty demigod Maui.
From Walt Disney Studios: Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows why. 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.
Meet PUA, Moana’s loyal pet pig with puppy energy and an innocent puppy brain! I see plushes from this film in the near future!
Also starring The KAKAMORA, an intense team of crazy, coconut-armored pirates who will stop at nothing to get what they want!
