Viewer reviews

Great! I love it BUT,
★★★★
It talks about "Gods" that children should not ask about. It's just a LITTLE to Other "Gods" stuff which I DO NOT like, but other wise it's a adventurous, fun, movie — Buggy/Alli Teague Anders

Amazing
★★★★★
This movie was awesome! I loved it.👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍🙂🙂🙂😇😇😇🙂🙂🙂😇😇😇🙂 — Funaddictingfabulous

ISLANDERS = RELATABLE 😂🔥
★★★★★
If your an islander I recommend this movie because you'll just die at laughing and relating to almost all of what they do and their songs are just catchy especially if you know and understand the language. Even if your not islander I totally recommend it for you so you can experience the wild islander pride of a Disney movie cause they've never had one. 🍍❤️👌🏽😏👸🏾🌺🌊☀️✨ — 🔥😋💦

Awsome movie to watch
★★★★★
It is very intresting to watch with family and friends having Cinema theatre popcorn, and enjoy the movie at the same time. I love to watch again. — Atul Saxena

Stunning
★★★★★
This movie is everything you need: emotional, funny, uplifting, historically and culturally accurate. The animation is excellent (which means a lot coming from someone who hates most 3D animation), the music is addicting, and the voice acting is superb. Most importantly, Moana is an excellent lead and a great role model for any kid. She's responsible, caring, and brave. And her sass makes this movie golden. It's also a relief to see a movie where ther character design for a teenage girl is respectful of her age (unlike Aladdin, for example; I'm still creeped out by how young Jasmine is supposed to be). The plot is great, and you can watch the movie again and again and still find something new. Everything from beginning to end is connected and well-thought out. Every detail has a significance, and the entire film celebrates rather than fetishizes Polynesian culture. I have seen this movie at least 6 times and I'm not stopping anytime soon. — E. A. Terranova

BEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! — 11225676236338423763389219

MY FAVORITE!
★★★★★
For me, this is hands-down the best Disney Princess movie ever. The story is great, the characters are original, the animation and color is beautiful, but the best part are the songs! Lin Manuel-Miranda is complete and total MASTERMIND. Best Disney Soundtrack in the history of Disney. — BroadwayChick_23💗

Moana is Great
★★★★★
The movie is a great one it shows moana never giving up and neither should you or if your a parent you and your kid it is worth 5 stars In my opinion so I would rent it and then if u love it I would buy it — Swimmons was here

FAVORITE DISNEY MOVIE
★★★★★
The only other Disney movie that could compete is Mulan. I love that this movie focuses on culture, family, and doing what's right (and hard) no matter the obstacles. THIS IS A MUST WATCH AND MUST OWN. — krissiiib

I HATE THIS STUPID MOVIE
★★★★
I watched this in the theater when it first came out. I absolutely hated it and was stunned by its stupidity. This movie has no story line and is just like every other Disney kids movie: idividual saves the world. It's a waste of time and energy!!! — k4--

Love the story line
★★★★★
I love that in this movie it's more of an empowering women movie. Showing women can do anything! I just wasn't a fan of the the whole crab snail looking thing and the animation. They should have kept it the Same animation throughout the whole movie — disneygirlforlife

Beautiful, no love?
★★★★★
Wow. The hair, the water and the sand. The animation is just so detailed it already deserves to have 5 stars. But that's not all, as even in the very beginning, it was very predictable of who the 'The Chosen One' was going to be, I find the directors wanted it to be that way to cause less confusion, but, the plot was incredible and the songs just matched right in with each problem. A movie will really captures one's heart when you produce something based off of a culture. Another great movie starring Dwane Johnson! — iiMintyBunny

Bonus Features Won’t Work!!!!
★★★★
So aside from the fact that this movie is very well written and produced, iTunes fails me again with the bonus videos not working. PLEASE FIX THIS! >:( — amyhoover9

HORRIBLE!
★★★★
This movie is absolutely HORRIBLE! I've always hated Disney movies in general, but this has to be one of the worst ones I've ever seen. The plot is boring, predictable, and don't even get me started on the soundtrack. It was so cheesy and obnoxious. There were over 8 songs in less than 20 minutes. Eight!! And I despise singing. Go waste your hard-earned money on something else. — ❄️Arctic Fox❄️

Great!

Amazing and Awe-Inspiring Movie
★★★★★
This movie was full of lots of fun and adventure and catchy songs that will surely make you tap your feet! Moana is an inspirational character whom all should try to model after because of her happiness and courage. Very funny moments with Haehae the chicken are sure to make anyone laugh! BEST MOVIE EVER!!! — I love Moana

Best! Gift! EVER!
★★★★★
I bought this for my older sister, and she screamed "THANK YOU SO MUCH!" and she downloaded it straight to her computer right away! Then, we watched it, and she was SO happy (I liked it to)! If you want to be a good brother (or sister),GET YOUR SIBLING THIS! IT IS AN AWESOME MOVIE! EVERYTHING ABOUT IT IS AWESOME (except the "Shiny" song)! That's all I have to say. — Yoshi_Love_Inc

Moana

Hi — Taylor Traynor

Not the best
★★★★★
The art is wonderful, the music is cheesy and not very catchy (rather reminiscent of a badly planned broadway show), and the story is slow and not all that great. Kind of disapointing after how good Frozen was. I appreciate that they were trying to do something different and they definitely had the potential to do something great. Obviously not everyone feels as I do, but that's how I see it. — the_bupp

LOVE IT, and I'M A 35 YEAR OLD MAN!

dubbed in standard Arabic
★★★★★
All Disney movies will be so much more entertaining if dubbed in standard Arabic! It will support our beautiful language and attract more children or language learners to see how great our own authentic Arabic is. I am against dubbing in dialects and therefore will support Standard Arabic!! — winryrocabell

Best kids movie I've seen in years!!!!!!!
★★★★★
My kids absolutely LOVE this movie we have to watch at least 3 times a day! — Caity_5678

Pretty overhyped
★★★★★
It's not good, not terrible. It felt really generic and phoned in, like it could have been any other Disney rip-off movie. The production quality is good, but the story itself is pretty garbage and predictable. — PabsLives

Amazing
★★★★★
I live that moana is not a traditional white princess she has a brace spirit and I love this movie 100% recommended — Habrams05

Stunning Visuals
★★★★
The plot is a little wonky and they turn a cultural hero into a buffon, but it's pretty to look at! This isn't a documentary, and Disney's got to make profit, so it gets over the top cute and sugary at times. The songs are good, the visuals are amazing and the character Moana is all around beautiful and well portrayed. — Frank C 66554321.

Wonderful!
★★★★★
Everyone should watch this. Such a great movie. — Edweird
