I´m usually not into Disney movies or kids movies in general. But I was kinda forced to watch MOANA about a month ago and since then I have watched it again with the kids and also I forced my husband to watch it. Because I think it´s AWESOME!!!!
The film tells the story of the strong-willed daughter of the chief of a Polynesian tribe, who is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite a mystical relic with a goddess. When a blight strikes her island, Moana sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod, in the hope of saving her people.
First of all I like the story…a lot, I think it´s beautifully written. It´s funny and shows a lot of aspects of life, mostly I liked the afterlife part, when Moana´s grandmother Tala comes back as a Manta Ray after she dies. This subject is so close to my heart!
Also I love, love, love the crab and his song “Shiny”. All of the songs are actually awesome and not annoying like the song from Frozen that I can not tolerate. I wouldn´t mind listening to Moana songs all day long. Great music and awesome lyrics!!!!
The songs were written by Opetaia Foa’i, Mark Mancina, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, while the score was written by Mancina. The soundtrack peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 !!!! I told you it´s good!!!!
So….if you haven´t seen it yet, it is about time you´d watch it!!!
