The movie Moana is about a girl who will become leader of her island but because of this lava monster called Te Ka her island will be destroyed. The ocean chooses her to help stop the monster by finding Dwayne Johnson I mean Maui, who will help her defeat Te Ka with the heart of the goddess Te Fiti which Maui stole and which had started this whole mess in the first place. Maui and Moana go on the adventure and both help each other in big ways. Maui teachers her how to sail while she helps him conquer his inner demons and helps save him from a monster named Tamatoa and then she helps him learn how to use the power of his magic hook that can turn him into any animal. However when they fight Te Ka they have a dispute, he leaves and Moana feels like she isn’t the one to help defeat Te Ka, but later gets the confidence again and Maui helps again and she learns Te Ka is Te Fiti and defeats her by giving her her heart again and then happy ever after.
I was surprised by the movie. I liked it more than I thought, the music was half and half for me. I liked the villain song and You’re Welcome song but the ones Moana sang were a bit corny to me. I also like the design of Maui and Moana, both different in terms of other Disney characters. Moana has muscles and not a very tiny waist. And Maui has muscles but not typical muscles you think of. Gaston and Hercules’ muscles look like muscle you usually think of but Maui almost kinda looks fat. So all in all I like the movie for the most part.
3 out of 5 stars
