“Moana” Movie Review

by Sheryl Wall

Special coupon for Dinuba Platinum Theatre at the end of this review.

Moana is the newest Disney movie about a daughter of the chief of a Polynesian tribe and is in training to take over as Chief. Ever since she was a young girl she felt called to the water, but her father says to stay away from the ocean for it is too dangerous and their people are not meant to travel the seas. However, later she learns from her Grandmother this was not always the case. Her Grandmother encourages her to follow her calling and save their Island.

Their island is dying and the fisherman can no longer find any fish to catch. Determined to help her people Moana finds herself on an adventure to save the Island. Long ago Demigod Maui had stolen the heart of the goddess, Te Fiti, which has caused the dying of her Island. She finds herself on an adventure to save her people as she searches for Maui to try to talk him in returning with her to return the goddesses heart. It took some persuading, but soon they are on an adventure together to restore the heart along with a stowaway from home, her chicken.

Moana is not your typical Princess movie where she is in need of rescuing or falls in love with the prince. Instead Moana is a determined leader who will do whatever it takes to save her people. The story is based on Polynesian Mythology.

I always enjoy seeing movies about Hawaiian culture for it’s my favorite place to visit and their culture is so unique and interesting. I enjoyed the Hawaiian songs they played in the background, and Moana (Auli'i Cravalho) has a beautiful voice; I especially enjoyed her songs.

It is a fun and adventurous story that can be enjoyed by the whole family. However, there are a couple scenes that could be scary for the younger child. Overall it’s a movie you won't want to miss…young or old.

Moana is currently playing at Dinuba Platinum Theatres 6. Showtimes can be found on their website. Platinum Theaters Dinuba 6 now proudly presents digital quality films in 2-D and 3-D with 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound to maximize your movie experience.
