Disney’s Moana is now available on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD, On-Demand and Digital HD/3D!
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 exactly 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 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.
Moana is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and features music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i.
My daughter and I watched Moana together and it is one of the most inspiring and beautiful Disney films we have watched so far! The music is beautiful throughout and the young teenager, Moana, is a refreshing, strong-willed character full of strength, determination and adventure. She sets out on a mission to help save her people to prove herself not only to her father, but to the people of her village as a “Master Wayfinder”. Demigod, Maui, is larger than life as he morphs and guides her along her quest, despite his stubbornness. I love the characters in this film and it shows that girl can be powerful and strong, in life and in a leadership role. Moana’s character is a beautiful spirit full of heart and strength that young girls can look up to.
The beauty of the island that Moana is from is breathtaking and the film does a great job of bringing the beauty of the islands to life using beautiful colours, characters, music and imagery. It truly is a beautiful film that inspires young girls to follow their dreams and embrace their inner strength.
