In recent years, Disney has somehow departed from the traditional Disney princesses with gowns, balls and prince charmings on the side. The recent flux of Disney films have paved way to new generation princesses that have shown free-will, strong personality and a diversity in personality and culture. Disney's Moana is one of those.
Moana is a Polynesian island's chief daughter who embarks on a mission to save her people. The very powerful storyline takes us into an adventure of different proportions diving into a new culture we rarely have an idea upon. And like in more recent years, Disney is slowly putting emphasis on female leads with strong personality and a great determination. Unlike traditional Disney films that often visits from time to time the love aspects of ones story, Moana solely focus on its deep story which makes it different. Some may find it less amusing but it certainly catches a fresh breath of air.
Besides the rich storyline, Moana excels in bringing energy into the fray. One would be immersed ina a journey that many would like to experience. As the plot thickens on the way, we are treated with great music and harmony that makes it more appealing. Heartfelt in many ways, Moana shows the value of family and self discovery and advancement. One would certainly have a great time with this film. Great but not excellent.
