Favorite Movie!!!

Finally a princess movie where the princess isn't obsessed w/getting a prince. It's so wonderful!!! The music is great and inspiring, the little chicken is even funny. I would definitely say this movie is way better than frozen. — Natasza3

★★★★★

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.

Moana
★★★★★
Did you know that Dwayne Johnson got is nickname"The Rock" from boxing? That's right! First he's a boxer, then he's an actor for action adventure or comedy, and now he's an animated Disney movie! Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson M — Amarchena

Really bad — sureshot327

Family enjoyed it
★★★★★
This movie is a great addition to the disney collection. I really thought the animation and the music were very well done. Most of all, I really like Moana's character. I tend to like the Disney princess's that are not damsels in distress, like Mulan and Merida. These characters are willing to break from tradition in order to help their family and pursue their own path. Moana does just that. All the supporting casts were great and none of them took the spotlight from Moana, which was a good thing imo. Definitely worth purchasing. — So_Cal_E

Hawaiian Punch
★★★★★
This movie makes me want to go on a vacation to Hawaii. After this movie made its debut, Hawaii must be bustling with tourists! — game putz

Family and Kids Loved it!
★★★★★
As always Disney didn't disappoint. Kids were engaged in the story and the adults loved it! We loved the change of culture. Reminded me of the feeling I had when watching Pocahontas and Lion King for the first time. Overall great movie! Definitely adding this to the rotation for the children! — Gnet234

AWESOME

Best movie EVER
★★★★★
As soon as I saw this movie it became my favorite instantly. It goes with the top Disney movies such as the lion king.. I would recommend this movie to both kids and adults. — Barbielauren

Quite Good
★★★★
This is one of the better CGI Disney movies for sure. Memorable songs and characters. It's a good movie but is easily predictable. I still recommend everyone see this movie! — KaliniuS

Timeless! Absolute Classic!
★★★★★
Disney did an outstanding job with this film. From start to finish, Disney incorporated life lessons from grief and love to disappointment and overcoming obstacles. This isn't another dreamy princess finding her prince, but lessons about growing up, being respectful to your parent's wishes, finding yourself, and being true to who you are. Too many years have gone by since Disney incorporated ethinic diversity into its lineup. Hopefully the studio will trend in this direction in the years to come. Great job, Disney! Highly recommend!! — Exquisitektc

Great fun for the entire family
★★★★★
When we purchased the movie my daughter was a bit skeptical as she is starting to grow out of the princess movie stage. After five minutes the movie had all of us sucked in for the ride. Now my kids (and I) can not get enough. — Goldberg269

Best around
★★★★★
My son loves loves loves this movie! Maui is his favorite!!! — Beebeemarcell

Amazing
★★★★★
This movie was amazing I just finished watching it and my family said moana is like Ariel and Pocahontas but I disagree I think Disney put a lot of hard work and thought into this movie and I don't think Disney is trying to just copy and paste other princesses to create something new I think they did a great job⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — D-Shack84

boring boring boring...
★★★★
I couldn't get through it, the most formulaic, derivative...load of...ack! "another Lion King"? Seriously, has everyone had a sip of the Pixar Kool-Aid...sheeple, c'mon! I weep for the future of our so-called culture, because for the time being it looks a lot like this: OMG!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😍😍😍😍😍 👍 👍👍👍 Ugh. Dear 8-14 year-olds, please STOP "writing reviews"!!! The world does NOT want to know, nor does it care, what you think. — alittlebrittle

GOAT for kids movies!
★★★★★
The Rock was hilarious, acting was great! — CABearGrrrrrrr

It's good, but not great.
★★★★★
There is no question that the animation is absolutely stunning. That, however, does not make a great movie. Plot/Story/Character is number one. Without that, everything else is just glitter and icing. The story is okay, but it's been done a thousand times before. Zero surprises in this film. Very predictable in every way. I wasn't a huge fan of the music, either. I'm sure they were trying to capture a "Frozen" love fest by inserting songs every few minutes, but the tunes weren't that catchy and just didn't have what is needed for a memorable, catchy, sing-alone score. The whole storyline was possibly the flattest sotryline I can remember seeing in a film. One girl, one destination, one path... no real fighting side plots or even a remote possability that something 'different' or 'unintended' might happen. Just straightforward and very linear -- which is pretty rare for a Pixar film. Overall, it was a decent film, and kids will enjoy it... but they'll likely be asking to watch Finding Nemo or Toy Story right after this film, rather than wanting to watch the film AGAIN like most kids do after seeing a good cartoon. — Sibelius-DLG

BEST DISNEY MOVIE EVER!!! The animations, the plot, the voice overs, the characters, EVERYTHING!!! Also, LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA!!! HE WROTE SOME SONGS IN THE MOVIE AND THEY ARE AMAZING!!! If you don't know, Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote a hip hop broadway musical about Alexander Hamilton's life. Back to the movie. This movie is worth you're time! — Anais ravine

Amazing and here's why
★★★★★
This is great and not a cliche movie at all honestly. The characters and their designs match actual people a lot more instead of the traditional neck thin waist line there's more accurate measurements. There are twists and turns you don't see coming and the music is fabulous. It's a great movie and you should definitely watch it. — Kdgaksmdhyswlf

Love it!!!

Underratedly Amazing
★★★★★
From the first song, I was amazed. This is a great movie whether you're watching it with family, a special someone, or (as in my case avoiding studying). The songs, the lyric, the voice acting, everythng was just great. It can definitebly one for the ages similar to Toy Story, Lionking, or Monsters Inc. — Lcolells51

Moana was one of the best movies I have ever saw
