The Story of Moana
CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
I feel pretty excited for this movie. My parents worked at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, HI for a year and half. I was able to visit them during this time. While they were there they grew to love the polynesian people. Whenever we talked they would talk about the culture, food, people and the different islands. I had an education too, it seems from their work. From that experience, it makes me super excited for this movie!
I’m sure I’ll have more news, pictures and trailers in the future, but for now enjoy this fun trailer. Moana comes to theaters November 23.
