Maui slices the beast’s arm off with one clean slice, giving Moana the opportunity to put the stone in the heart of the mother island, Te Fiti. Moana is the soon-to-be chief of her island, when she is suddenly chosen by the ocean to deliver a stone to the heart of Te Fiti, and restore life to her island. Te Fiti is the mother island, which all life comes from, and Moana must save it. She requires aid from the brooding, tattoo-covered demi-god, Maui. They have to defeat the coconut pirates, a giant crab, and a lava monster, in order to create economical balance on Earth.
The new movie Moana is filled with action-packed, hilarious scenes, and amazing musical performances. What really brought it together was how the film portrayed the Polynesian culture. Moana is Disney’s first Polynesian princess, and the movie had wonderful music and art that I thought symbolized the culture very well. The art and designs throughout the movie were incredible, and the full-body tattoos on Maui were extremely detailed.
Moana is a fantastic film for people of any age, and is guaranteed to leave you feeling upbeat and happy. The wonderful storyline, extravagant artwork, and representation of Polynesian culture are all key reasons that you have to see this movie. Hopefully this is the first of many new, diverse Disney princesses to come in the future.
