Since its first film release in 1937 (Snow White, for the curious among you), Disney has often released films that draw from fairy tales or mythology, like Hercules and Enchanted, and Moana is the latest film to do so - it's based on stories from Polynesian mythology.
Moana Waialiki brings ancient mythology to life with a heroic journey to save her people. Her home, Motunui, is plagued with failing crops and the fisherman are unable to catch any fish. Moana learns that the wind and sea demigod Maui is at fault - he stole the heart of the island Te Fiti (the creator of all life) causing her to crumble. As Te Fiti broke apart, the life she gave the islands around her was lost too.
When Moana discovers the source of her islands problems, and realises that the only way to fix the island is to persuade Maui to return Te Fiti's heart, she sets off on a quest to find him, guided by constellations and following in the footsteps of her voyager ancestors. Finding him is just the start of her adventure, and they must work together against all odds to save her island!
Join Moana on her action packed journey, filled with monsters, self discovery, and a catchy soundtrack.
