Review of Moana

Moana Waialiki is a sea voyaging enthusiast and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her island’s fishermen can’t catch any fish and the crops fail, she learns that the demigod Maui caused the blight by stealing the heart of the goddess, Te Fiti. The only way to heal the island is to persuade Maui to return Te Fiti’s heart, so Moana sets off on an epic journey across the Pacific

Possible Spoilers:

Moana is a Disney movie that I watched two days ago.  Moana is about a girl who goes on an adventure when she is called to put back the heart of Te Fiti, but first she must found the demigod, Maui, but it isn’t going to be easy. First, her dad does not anyone on her island to go beyond the reef and second, Maui is very reluctant once Moana finds him once she finds him. When the heart was stolen, darkness existed and the demigod Te Fiti turned into a demon called Te Ka.

The only person who encourages Moana to go on this journey is her grandma. Her grandma believes in her more than anybody. Just like many Disney movies, Moana disobeys her father by leaving the island without his permission. But that was the only way to go on her adventure. Moana is very strong and determined and in order to find Maui she must follow the hook in the sky. Maui honestly at first does not want to return the heart at all. Eventually Maui decides to adventure with Moana to help return the heart.

Moana is a good movie especially for children. It has incredible songs especially “How Far I’ll Go”. There are Polynesian songs at times and that makes you learn of Moana’s culture. “How Far I’ll Go” shows just how determined Moana is and shows that she will eventually do the deed that she been called to do.

Moana gives a wonderful message of discovering who you are and not letting anyone not let you be who you are and Moana discovers who she is throughout the movie and her father does not want her to truly be who she is, but that does not stop her from being who she truly is. It is about to never give up on your dreams and when the roads tough to keep going forward and Moana shows that throughout her journey. She constantly is arguing with her father, she has to put up with how reluctant Maui is and then they have to face Ta Ka. It is about learning from your mistakes as well and that is something that Maui learns at at the end.
