So you know a movie’s going to be great if Disney makes it, but you can rest assured it’s going to be beyond great if one of the leads is covered in tattoos from neck to ankle. I mean, I haven’t seen Moana yet, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be great.
I was super pumped to see The Jungle Book, right? And I thought it would take the cake of excitement for all movies this year. Then I became ridiculously obsessed with Lin-Manuel Miranda and “Hamilton”. Moana has now topped The Jungle Book as THE movie I’m most excited to see, or perhaps it’s the movie I’m most excited to HEAR, considering the fact that Miranda lent his talents to the score for this movie.
I’m actually more of a music person than a TV or movie person. Hear me out, OK? You cannot have a great movie without great score, that’s just fact. Music lends so many emotions to movies. They tip feelings of sadness over the edge, they evoke suspense, joy, and excitement. To me, score is just as important as casting, and judging by Lin-Manual Miranda’s previous work, I think it’s safe to say this movie is going to really blow us all away.
Here’s the most recent trailer for Moana, and some information on the film below. Look for Moana to hit theaters on November 23, just in time for a Thanksgiving escape.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, 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. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”) and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
