So pretty much the only movies we actually see in the theatre anymore are kids’ movies. I try to only go see the ones that are going to be good (sorry, Trolls, you can wait for dvd), so the day it opened my parents and I took the kids to see Moana. We had seen the extended preview a few times at Disneyland and were excited because it looked awesome. We were not disappointed.
Moana is a young girl who discovers she has been chosen to fulfill a prophesy of her people and restore an ancient relic to a goddess. Along the way she meets Maui, a demigod to help her. The songs are catchy and Moana is definitely winsome and is a good role model for the kids. The animation is beautiful, especially the water scenes. I think adults will enjoy this movie just as much as kids would.
