there was a lot disney animated movies Over the past decade, from hits such as frozen (turns 10 in 2023), big hero 6, But the movies I never really get tired of are Moana. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, this is the Disney movie of the last decade that has made us rewatch it over and over again.
I happened to see it again this year on Disney+ and loved it just as much as last time. As I watched, a thought popped up in my head and I knew I needed to share it.
oh my god baby moana is so cute
This movie has a great start, but the first thing I have to say is that Moana’s baby has to be the cutest baby in all of Disney.neither do i favorite Kids often appear in these movies, and half the time it feels like a plot gimmick, but baby Moana is the perfect little cuteness to kick this movie off properly.
what i mean is giggles. she is very cute That scene alone will get everyone getting baby fever.
Animation is the best Disney has ever done, including in recent years
Let’s get into the actual admiration I have for this movie. Moana It’s the best animation Disney has ever done. I love Encanto, However Moana just right. is better than Strange World, Frozen II – all.
I know animation has evolved a lot in the last decade, but Moana Beautiful on another level. Not only is the landscape perfect, highlighting the natural beauty of the Polynesian islands, but the sea is also stunning. wonderful. I mean, if you didn’t see little Moana first, you might not think this is an animated movie.
What I love about this animation is not just how the ocean looks. It’s how the ocean interacts with the environment. I never thought I could give the ocean a personality, but it’s done well in this film. From the cheeky way you talk to Moana to the way you interact with Maui, it’s all about fun. You can’t help but love the sea.
These songs are great and very catchy
Lin-Manuel Miranda wasn’t the only person responsible for killer music, Moana, He helped me write the lyrics. From the moment this film begins, you can tell his musical footprints are all over this soundtrack.
From the flow of the song to the story they tell, it’s very well done. I love Miranda’s work. but Encanto, His songs are so good over there, Moana It was outstanding in every respect. all songs It really felt like it told a story and nothing felt like filler.
listen “How Far I’ll Go”And try not to sing along – it is impossible. The lyrics are so meaningful that you can tell it’s a song by Lin-Manuel Miranda. he is so wonderful
Dwayne Johnson is a national treasure
he really is.Dwayne Johnson is probably one of Hollywood’s most charismatic men, but there’s something About him voicing Maui It makes him even more of a national treasure.
His charm leaks through the character, even though Maui was honestly pretty disgusting throughout the first half of the film, before he started growing into Moana and the audience as well. And it’s everything you want in a Disney character, and it’s masterfully rendered in Johnson’s memorable performance.
In other words, how No sing together”you’re welcome“? The song is bop and I stand by it.my daughter looks weird I still don’t believe he voices Maui.
I still love Tamatoa – even though he’s barely in the movies
We have a lot Different Forms of Disney Villains movie, but Moana, There are two. One barely makes it into the movie, and the other is actually an obstacle rather than a villain. The first villain is Tamatoa. And he’s just iconic.
Jemaine Clement can bring that sass and personality to Tamatoa. Tamatoa is this giant crab in the realm of monsters who loves shiny things and is his song.shiny, ”Stunningly catchy, but also very vicious at the same time. But his time in the movie is only 7 minutes, which is honestly so sad. He could have been such a fun villain – he reminds me of one of my favorite sassy Disney villains, Hades from the underrated hit. Hercules.
But I understand that that would lose the essential plot of the film.
hawks are still scary
Hawk is technically the film’s real villain, as Moana and Maui have to fight their way through this fiery lava monster to get to Te Fiti, but she really is. No Because the only one who’s lost her mind is Te Fiti under every rock. It’s honestly nice to make a movie that doesn’t have a truly evil monster as an antagonist.
But even if hawk isn’t super evil, she’s still That’s horrible. please think about it.you are literally on a yacht middle All you see is these giant burning lava rocks being hurled at you by mighty fire monsters.
“I am Moana” is a very powerful scene/song
when Moana It was 2016 and I had just entered college.I am Moana (Ancestral Song)” it was the song i was listening to alwaysbecause this scene is perfect.
Moana and Maui fail to get to Te Fiti for the first time, shortly after Maui leaves Moana alone. She is haunted by the spirit of her late grandmother, who encourages her to keep moving forward despite her doubts about herself, giving Moana a sense of who she really is and no matter what the world throws at her. , she said as a reminder that anything is possible.
Ancestors make an appearance, and Moana gains the confidence to continue her journey, with or without Maui.
Even without the scene, the song itself is great. But with the addition of scene visuals, you can see behind the ancestors and their directions. If it makes sense, it’s even better.
this ending is beautiful
i love the ending of Moana. She literally walked across the ocean floor to return Te Fiti’s heart to the hawk, only to reveal it was really Te Fiti. and return to the tribe and resume directions.
A beautiful way to end the movie. She places the shell on a stone pillar, signaling not only the start of her rulership, but also the end of Wayfinder’s stay on the island and out to sea. , shows how far Moana has really come – and I think it’s a beautiful lesson to teach kids.
Don’t be afraid to do scary things. Because I really don’t know how far I can go. Ugh, just writing this makes me want to cry.
I really don’t think there is a movie like Moana It makes me feel like this. In the future, I may be able to pass this movie on to my children and tell them how great it is.
