Another typical Disney movie of princess, magic, spells, curses, and CONFUSION. I wont spoil it but if you like musical girlie types like FRozen then you'll probably love this. Otherwise, trust me you will be like whats going on? Why is this taking so long? get to the point already. It just drags and drags and drags. It is also somewhat predicable..you'll see what i mean if you go see this. But i HIGHLY recommend you Don't waste your time and money on this movie. If you really want to see it that bad..wait for the DVD...trust me it isn't worth it. At one point in the movie even The Rock says please stop singing. Two good things i can say. The short story before the movie started was outstanding. Its called Inner Workings. Absolutely amazing and well done. Moana also exhibits incredible computer animation. Other than that IT IS A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. I warned you!

Please Stop SingingReviewed byrobertdovaljrVote: 1/10
Another wonderful movie to add to the Disney classics. 2016 has been aparticularly strong year for animated films. With the likes ofZootopia, Finding Dory and Kubo & The Two Strings all vying for bestanimated picture of the year, it seems Moana deserves to be mentionedin the same breath as well. It is awesome movie.
A small pounamu stone that is the mystical heart of the goddess Te Fitiis stolen by the demigod Maui, who was planning to give it to humanityas a gift. As Maui makes his escape, he is attacked by the lava demonTe Kā, causing the heart of Te Fiti as well as his power-grantingmagical fish hook to be lost in the ocean.
Young Moana Waialiki, daughter and heir of the chief on the smallPolynesian island of Motunui, is chosen by the ocean to receive theheart, but drops it when her father, Chief Tui, comes to get her. Heinsists the island provides everything the villagers need. Years later,fish become scarce and the island's vegetation begins dying. Moanaproposes going beyond the reef to find more fish. Chief Tui rejects herrequest, as sailing past the reef is forbidden.
Moana's grandmother, Gramma Tala, shows Moana a secret cave behind awaterfall, where she discovers her ancestors were voyagers, sailing anddiscovering new islands across the world. Tala explains that theystopped voyaging because Maui stole the heart, causing monsters toappear in the ocean. Tala then reveals that the darkness has beenspreading from island to island, slowly killing, and now Motunui isnext.
Tala falls ill and with her dying breaths tells Moana to set sail.Moana and her pet chicken Heihei depart in a drua to find Maui torestore the heart of the goddess Te Fiti.
After a typhoon wave flips her sailboat and knocks her unconscious, sheawakens the next morning on an island inhabited by Maui, who traps herin a cave and takes her sailboat to search for his fishhook. Afterescaping and catching up to Maui, Moana tries to convince him to returnthe heart, but Maui refuses, fearing its power will attract darkcreatures.
Immediately after, sentient coconut pirates called Kakamora surroundthe boat and steal the heart, but Maui and Moana retrieve it. Mauiagrees to help return the heart to Te Fiti, but only after he reclaimshis hook, which is hidden in Lalotai, the Realm of Monsters, and heldby Tamatoa, a giant coconut crab. They successfully retrieve it bytricking Tamatoa. After Maui have his hook, Fearful that returning tofight Te Kā will destroy his hook, Maui abandons Moana.
Moana still want to return the heart from the ocean to Te Fiti alone.Maui, having had a change of heart, returns to help Moana. Mauidistract the lava demon, and his hook is destroyed in the battle.Realizing that Te Kā is actually Te Fiti without her heart, Moana asksthe ocean to clear a path for Te Kā to approach her. She sings a song,asking Te Kā to remember who she truly is, allowing Moana to restoreher heart. Te Fiti returns and in gratitude, gives a new canoe to Moanaand a new magical hook to Maui before returning to her island form.
Moana bids farewell to Maui and returns to her recovering island withHeihei. Later, the villagers begin voyaging and set sail in search ofnew islands, as Maui and Tala accompany them in their giant hawk andmanta ray forms, respectively.
Moana is simplistic plot. Surround a young quasi-islander girl with a big over-weight quasi-demi-god, a few animal "friends", a father afraid of going out beyond the reef because his friend drowned? and a need to return a stone to its source because that demi-god stole it? while disrespecting the father/chief? and becoming a leader of the people before the father dies? of which, women weren't allowed to be chiefs?
Disney's ability to dilute any folklore is well-known, in order to make a quick buck by selling junk merchandise to kids. The tattoo suit was a terrible idea, but kudos for pulling it off the shelf quickly.
Disney has a habit also of producing "girl power" movies, which I find to be cookie-cutter style. Disney has found a formula and they rinse-repeat with the characters, music and script. Recently this has been true with movies like Frozen, Tangled and Brave.
In the meantime, Disney ignores the male lead role with the ability to change and overcome challenges in life. (12) movies in the past have featured male leads but none of which meet the standards set forth today by Disney standards for female lead roles. No, I don't include Pixar movies.
Of those (12) movies, only two have meaningful scripts and two have sad endings. Peter Pan (1953), Sword in Stone (1963), Jungle Book (1967/2016), Black Cauldron (1985), Aladdin (1992), Hunchback (1996), Hercules (1997), Tarzan (1999), Emperor's New Groove (2000), Treasure Planet (2002), Brother Bear (2003), Meet Robinson's (2007).
I could really dig deep and trash this movie for all the things they got wrong, but I'm going to skip it and just point out the few things I liked about the movie.
(1) The animation is good. (2) The movie is about the Pacific Islanders. (meh) There was one tune I thought was catchy, the rest were crap
That's it. The rest of the movie is junk to me. It is a cookie- cutter movie with the same theme, with the same songs, with the same direction. Sure there are some amusing parts of the movie, but over all I really didn't care for it.
I also was disappointed in the use of "Disney staff from the Disney resort" who are of native heritage for the bonus features. It became obvious to me that Disney was doing a fluff piece to show the general public that "islanders" love working on the movie, which is a partial truth.
Overall this movie is an amusing production which will satisfy the little kids and the simpletons. If Disney really wanted to make a movie about diversity they could make the same movie about a gay boy trying to be chief after his father dies.
