Disney is a name that is known around the world. From theme parks to Princesses Disney is all about family fun. Disney Princesses are timeless from the very first Princess Snow White to last year’s first ever Polynesian Princess, Moana (Auli’I Cravalho). I have clocked countless hours of Disney movie watching time and have enjoyed every second of it. That being said, my new favorite Disney movie/Princess is Moana. I have never laughed so hard and so loud in a movie theater (thought I was going to be escorted out of the theater) ever… This movie really does appeal to adults as well as kids. We went to a early afternoon showing (so I could bring my two littlest littles) and they sat through the whole movie (all 107 minutes) without so much as a peep.
When an ancient curse, caused by Demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) threatens Moana’s island she must set out beyond the reef to find the Demigod and return the heart of Te Whiti, which Maui stole. One small problem. Moana does not know how to sail. Which is funny because her ancestors were master wayfinders. With the oceans help (yes you read that correctly) Moana finds Maui and tries to persuade him to come back to Montunui to return the heart that he stole. After a action packed fight with some coconuts (again, you read that correctly) Moana and Maui set off to steal back his hook from a very shiny and musically inclined monster crab named Tamatoa (Jemaine Clement). What follows is one of the best songs of the movie, second to Maui’s number. With the hook back in his hand Maui can finally shape-shift, not successfully. After Moana learns how Maui became a Demigod she gives a pep talk and all is good. They set out for Montunui, finally. With an epic battle with a fiery monster leading to the near destruction of Maui’s hook it would seem that all is lost….
You think “Let it Go” was catchy, just wait. Your kids will be singing “Your Welcome” for weeks (it is my new ringtone). There are so many funny moments in this movie. Between Hei Hei, a very clumsy chicken who is Moana’s sidekick and Maui’s eyebrow and peck jump the whole theater was laughing. Great original songs sung by the stars, Auli’I Cravalho has an amazing voice. This is a definite for your Disney movie collection. You can own Moana on DVD and Blue-ray on March 7. It will be available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes on February 21, pre-order your copy ASAP.
