Disney's next Pacific Islander film, MOANA!


Its been years since we've had a Pacific Islander themed movie from Disney.  Lilo and Stitch came out in 2002 and MOANA arrives in theaters everywhere on November 23rd, 2016. On our first family vacation to Hawai'i, I saw Lilo and Stitch everywhere we looked! They were Disney ambassadors connecting Disney fans visiting from the mainland to the locals. On our next trip to Hawai'i, I'm planning to check out Aulani, and am certain I will see the MOANA stamp everywhere there too!   

What's the movie about? Well, besides being guaranteed funny due to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson being one of the main characters, Maui, the movie is about an adventurous teenager, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana meets the mighty demigod Maui 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.  The description of Moana reminds me of another animated Asian-themed heroine seeking her identity, Mulan!  I hope the soundtrack for MOANA is just as good.

Check out the latest TV spot on the movie:


So mark your calendars and after a thankful meal, round up the family to see MOANA opening on Thanksgiving!
