The folks that brought us Thanksgiving hits like Frozen and Zootopia gave us this year's latest Thanksgiving weekend treat called Moana just to delight everyone who has a heart on all things Disney with spectacular visuals, storyline, and the characters that will become highly recognizable for future generations to come. It's about a young girl named Moana (played by Auli'i Cravalho) who sets off to an unforgettable adventure to save her people. From there, she teams up with a once powerful demigod named Maui (played by action star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) and then voyage across the seas right up to the moment where Moana discovers her true self that was carried over by her ancestors. Nothing says its going to be easy but for an odd couple like a young free-spirited girl and a powerful being, anything is possible.
As a lighthearted modern-day take of a Oceanic legend, Moana isn't just all about the main characters travelling through the high seas for their once-in-a-lifetime adventure but by the moment you're watching this film, feels like it's summer again, even if its autumn or winter already because of such oceanic theme was used on the film, which captures the eyes of viewers of all ages. While this film has some bothersome moments that will get some viewers having a rough time while watching the film, having this film sweeping you like a tsunami is a great expression why this latest Thanksgiving offering from Disney is one of the best family films this season and destined to become a future classic just like Tangled, The Princess and the Frog, even Frozen.
Disney's Moana is a welcoming feast for the Disney fans many and pretty soon, it's going to give birth to a whole bunch of fans after seeing that film about a young girl who bravely took on numerous trials all in the name of her destiny. Call it what you may but this film will become an instant classic for many generations to come and the main characters of this story along with it by open arms.
My rating: 4.3 out of 5.
