Moana is a great movie! It is funny and family friendly! Lots of songs, Easter eggs and animal sidekicks on point.
It is NOT your usual Disney princess movie; no prince and no falling in love. “If you wear a dress and have an animal sidekick, you are a princess.” -Maui (There is a scene that shows Moana as the chief’s daughter. Sort of like a princess and like Pocahontas.)
This is a movie about being who you are meant to be. A tough thing for many people. But not Maui… “Hook, no hook, I’m Maui.”-Maui
“The gods aren’t the ones who make you Maui, you are.”-Moana
Being who you are really resonated with me. I love it! I highly recommend this movie! ~Rachel
Now in theater is Moana, a chief’s daughter chosen by the sea. She is to take the Demigod, Maui, back to the island where he took the heart of Te Fiti intending to use it to create good things for humans. Instead Maui ends up creating Te Ka, unleashing a sort of darkness beginning to destroy land.
Well, this movie is full of cuteness and laughter. The words are encouraging and the songs you just want jump out of your seat and hula. Like said in my sisters second to last paragraph this movie has an amazing moral on being who you are and excepting that, also I believe Moana has another moral: never giving up. Like Walt Disney said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Moana is a family friendly movie with heart and an incredible hilarious/dumb chicken! ~Remiah

Disney and Disney/Pixar are FAMOUS for connecting their movies. Not even Moana is exempt from what is commonly called Easter Eggs. Eater eggs are HIDDEN features in movies or software. They are SUPER fun to find!
Here is the current list of Moana’s Easter Eggs:
1. Sven- you can’t miss this one. Maui makes sure of it!
2. Olaf- I’m NOT convinced…but keep you eyes open, it is super quick
3. Wreck It Ralph- the end credits
4. Alaadin’s Lamp- Realm of Monsters
5. Founder- during the You’re Welcome part, he is a drawing
6. Flash- did you see him? I can’t decided!
7. Crush- the turtle, is it really him?
8. Sebastian- end credits
9. Marshmallow- when Chief Tai is holding little Moana in the hut
10. Baymax- kakmora, about right in the middle of the screen.
