Moana | Film Review

Disney has been dishing out a lot of remakes such as Beauty and the Beast and the Jungle Book. These films have been very good but it's not original. I think it's a bit lazy just re-making all of the old films. I was pretty happy to hear that they made a new film called Moana which came out in 2016. I have been wanting to watch this film since I saw the trailer. The time has come and I have finally seen it!
I have always been a bit unsure of whether I would like this film - due to the endless amount of princess and love films that Disney do. Lucky for me it wasn't the case for this film. It is filled with wonder and possibilities. It makes you want to follow your dreams and believe in yourself.

The film is based in Ancient Polynesia where a terrible curse was planted by the Demigod Maui which reaches Moana's island. Moana answers the ocean's call to seek out the Demidog to try and set things straight. Moana is the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. Her island's fishermen can't catch any fish and the crops start to fail. Moana learns that she needs to set off on an epic journey across the Pacific.

Moana is an engaging adventure that is an empowering storyline which pays tribute to Polynesian culture using its feel-good music. The music is so good that I now listen to the soundtrack a lot. It's uplifting and easy to sing along to.

Fun Fact:-
Did you know that the beach scene where toddler Moana escorts a baby turtle across the beach with a palm leaf is a direct reference to Lilo and Stitch?

I love this film a lot. It's a family film which is great for watching all together on a Sunday. It's a feel-good film so it'll leave you feeling all warm inside. If you're looking for a new film to show your children or grandkids - then this is the film for that.

I would love to know your thoughts on this film and comment below if you would recommend any feel-good films.

See you next time for another.
