Moana Review


Moana is the latest and 56th installment from the Disney studios. The Movie has been a box office smash in the USA over the last few weeks and is sure to be a big hit here too leading up to the festive season. 2016 has certainly been an amazing year for animation movies with big names releases such as Kubo and the Two Strings, Zootopia, Trolls and Finding Dory to name just a few. Disney look to have thrown a late entry into the ring for the Best Animation Movie Oscar with Moana sure to be in the shakeup.


The computer animations in this movie are very impressive with scenic views looking almost real at times which paints a beautiful picture of the island which is home to our heroine. Featuring music written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina with the majority of the very catchy sound track being performed by new comer Auli’i Cravalho who also voices the lead role of Moana herself. Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson who voices the character Maui is also not afraid to show off his singing skills, and to his credit he does a fine job.


Moana tells the tale of a very strong willed Polynesian teenager who is the Chief in waiting of her little Hawaiian island called Motunui. She has always been drawn towards the oceans and dreams of what lays beyond the reefs of the island. When the Island become infected by a terrible disease which is killing all the vegetation and food sources Moana discovers from her grandmother that she was chosen by the ocean and is the island only hope. Moana must sail the ocean and find Maui to help her reunite the island goddess with an ancient mystical relic.

Disney have ticked all the boxed with Moana and provided us with a good family feel good movie with an good story line and a very good soundtrack.

Rating 4/5
