Young navigator Moana (voice of Auli'i Cravalho), the daughter of a Polynesian tribal chief, is chosen to find a precious artifact that could save her people. She teams with demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) to locate a legendary island, and together the pair explore fantastical lands and encounter incredible sea creatures in this animated adventure from Disney. The film's soundtrack includes contributions from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the Tony and Grammy-winning creator of the popular stage musical Hamilton. Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker.~Daniel Gelb
One of the best looking upgrades I’ve seen so far over the standard blu ray as far as colors and image “pop” go. Definitely my favorite looking Disney title so far that I’ve seen. The atmos track is at times very enveloping with its use of overheads and surrounds, especially during the storm scenes. There’s only a few times the bass really digs in but for a Disney title it was above average for both bass and atmos use. Just don’t forget to crank your receiver up a few notches like ever other Disney movie. Honestly I didn’t plan on watching this whole thing since it was more a purchase for the kiddos and I’ve seen it a couple times already, but the imagery and sound kept me entertained like the first time I saw it in theaters years ago. Wonderful addition.
Moana was so colorful, simple, musical, and funny at times. "How Far I'll Go" may not be a zenith hit like "Let It Go," but it still has a great message and is worth a listen, if not more. I recommend this to those who may want to see Dwayne Johnson outside of an action movie role. Believe me, he plays Maui well.
Purchased for our niece as a gift and she loves it. Of course we like to watch it too. Plot and story line are great.The characters are entertaining along with the music. The rooster will keep you laughing. Highly recommend this movie!
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have 7 grandchildren and the first thing they want to do when they come over is watch Moana. They are glued to the tv and they know all the words to the songs. It's such a pleasure to watch them watch the movie and sing along.
The quality of the movie is the best! I saw the movie in a theater and there's nothing like seeing the movie with almost the same quality in the comfort of your own home! A must have for any Disney fan!!!
