Storyline Heading
The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Adventure Comedy - This is an animated musical adventure aimed at the entire family, but as with all Disney animated features, its main appeal is to kids, especially girls, what with its strong young heroine. Dwayne Johnson voices one of the main characters, but he is distinctly in support to the young female lead. Nearly all families will find this appropriate viewing for kids of all ages, but there is a moment of mildly crude humor and some scary images that may be of caution to parents of the youngest children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good It should be immensely popular with its core audience (which one would assume is similar to Frozen's) and will provide an enjoyable 1 1/2 hours for those outside of it. Moana is an entertaining and worthy way to close Disney's 2016 animated roster.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good It's a must-see for girls and boys alike... ...dazzling visuals, catchy tunes, enjoyable performances, clever running gags and overall sense of fun. ...the colors are a million shades of green blue, and the underwater creatures and settings have a wonderfully immersive, tactile quality.

NY Post Full Review
Very Good Musicwise, this is one of Disney's finest, though there's no "Let It Go”-level standout. ...works on every level. The film expertly harnesses the goofy arrogance of Dwayne "The Rock” Johnson in the role of a demigod named Maui...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good ...a scrappy sweetheart of an animated joyride, rising on the tide of a terrific score... Since Te Kā, a hulking beast, is hellbent on scaring Moana off her goal, there is trouble ahead. But since Maui is voiced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, there will be laughs along the way.
