Moana: Endearing Pacific Island Disney Flick- 100 Word Review

In Ancient Polynesia, bright-eyed future chief Moana sails out on a quest to save her dying island, accompanied by cheeky demigod Maui.

The dialogue slightly overloads on the rhetoric of self empowerment and forging identity. Fortunately

Manuel Miranda’s catchy music makes this cliched message easier to swallow.

The storyline’s predictable and plods familiar territory in a journey much like Mulan’s. However, the characters, animation and music makes Moana so entertaining you don’t care.

Newcomer Cravalho has an angelic voice and enough sass to counter Johnson’s cocky Maui.

Moana bounds along in a feel good Disney flick that leaves you wanting more.

Jo Bradley.
