Check out this new trailer for Moana! I am so excited for this movie. It looks like Disney is continuing on their trend to showcase strong female lead characters.
Moana Trailer Review
I am already mesmerized by the animation and story. This trailer points out how nothing scares Moana and she is ready for whatever challenge comes her way. I like how we get a closer glimpse at her weird looking rooster sidekick, HeiHei. The sidekick reminds me of Becky from Finding Dory. It looks like Dwayne Johnson is going to add some really funny moments in the movie as well. The animation is so pretty, I love the way the water looks so real.
So I was doing some research for Moana and just learned that the movie will have different titles in other countries, which isn’t odd. What is odd though is that Moana has to have a different name in Italy presumably because their is a porn star with the same name (source: Wikipedia)
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i, “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
