Movie Review: ‘Moana’
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.
Sooooo what did I think of Disney’s MOANA?!
I freaking loved it!! I thought the movie was great. After watching it – I thought to myself, “Mike. You should have watched this in the theater.”
Cast was great! Auli’i Cravalho as Moana was perfect. Moana has officially made it on my Ultimate Disney Princess List. She’s up there with Merida of BRAVE. (Yes. I just have 2) The Rock as Maui was perfect. He was made for that role! (lol) Great movie, great songs, great characters, great everything. MOANA is a must see!!
I give MOANA…5 out of 5 popcorns!
