I’m pretty excited for Disney’s next animated tale Moana. Despite what some people think, this is not the story of the sassy redheaded grandmother from Who’s the Boss? (Yeah, I’m looking at you, Melissa and Amy.)
Uh uh. Moana is a colorful tale of a young woman on a sea-fairing journey full of adventure, monsters and impossible odds. It also stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the voice of the mighty demigod Maui.
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
It really looks good and I am in love with the art and animation style of this one. Take a look:
