A spirited young Polynesian princess takes to the sea in a quest to save her people from a mysterious threat. Accompanied by once-mighty demi-god Maui and with a crazy rooster for a sidekick, Moana discovers the South Pacific heritage of her ancestors and finds her true seafaring destiny. A big-hearted combination of action-packed plot, dazzling visuals, a feisty heroine and catchy songs.

Directors John Musker and Ron Clements – responsible for old-school Disney classics The Little Mermaid and Aladdin – here pull off a remarkable feat in matching the traditional musical-led story values of a previous generation with the startling creative possibilities of today’s digital technology, all the while paying tribute to Polynesian faith, culture and seafaring traditions in a way that’s generously inclusive rather than tokenistic. With a captivating heroine, a startling array of gods and monsters, as well as a simply storming set of tunes, this brings together the best of Disney past and present in one knockout entertainment.
