REVIEW:

Being the new movie in the Disney Princess franchise I was definitely going to watch Moana. The Disney franchise has increased their level of diversity in this movie by including a culture other than European. The movie is not specific as to where in Polynesia Moana is based and there is a mixture of different cultures within this movie. Moana as a character is interesting and free spirited and develops through the movie. Moana is a character that begins the movie as a selfish and as the movie progresses Maui’s backstory develops and he learns to be more selfless. The adventure storyline takes some minor unnecessary turns and there is a menagerie of antagonists that pop their head up through the hour and a half. The music is brilliant and will stay with you long after the credits. The plot twist at the end was unexpected and a lovely way to wrap up the storyline. There are some hidden easter eggs from previous Disney movies scattered throughout that were fun to find. Overall, the plot was well-done with some scenes that I did not feel were entirely necessary, but the music and characters kept the fun going.
