Sorry for the delayed post. Life has been hectic since I got home. But I think things are starting to settle down a little bit. But over the Thanksgiving weekend, I got to see the latest Disney movie, Moana. What more can I say? The movie is fucking wonderful! Of course it is wonderful! It is Disney! Their absolute worst is great and their movies are constantly a symbol for childhoods for damn near a century. So yeah, Moana is stellar and I am soon going to tell you all the reasons why.
Moana is, naturally, the story of Moana (Auli’i Cravalho). She is the daughter of the chief and as such, has to lead her people. However, Moana truly wants to sail past the reef, something that is forbidden by her people. However, after things start dying on the island, Moana’s grandmother, Tala (Rachel House) reveals that their people used to be voyagers on the sea and that she is chosen to save the earth by returning the heart of Tefiti to its rightful home after it was stolen by the mischievous Maui (Dwayne Johnson).
So Moana sets off to find Maui and return the Heart of Tefiti to its proper place, thus restoring balance and saving the world.
This movie is an instant classic. It is easily one of the best in the Disney Animated Studios history and that is certainly saying something. It is fun, light-hearted, and groundbreaking fun. Hitting all of those feels that Disney is so good to touch upon.
Final Score 5/5
