Disney's Moana...Our Sneak Peek and My Thoughts

If you follow me on social media, you know that I have been very excited about Moana. As a parent, I know that if I take my kids to a Disney movie, that it will be well made, entertaining for all of us, and I don't have to worry about inappropriate content.  I appreciate that.  This movie, with a brand new "princess", was SO EXCITING!

Last night, I was able to take the kids (minus Belle because it started a bit late) to an early screening.
They loved it.  Clara even proclaimed it better than Finding Dory.  It was an exciting adventure, that had me pining for gorgeous Hawaii.  Sigh.  While I wouldn't say it is my favorite of all the animated features, it was really fun.

The music was amazing, and very catchy.  The sidekicks (especially Hehe the chicken) were hilarious, the hijinks were giggle-worthy, and I was very excited to see a strong, athletic female lead. It was a great departure from the standard animated heroine archetype.   There is no love interest, and Moana proudly proclaims, "I am not a princess".  Love it.

I also need to mention that the Rock was VERY good as the demigod Maui.  He was funny, and his hair?  Captivating.  That sounds odd to say, but when you see Moana, you will understand what I mean.

There are some intense scenes that may be frightening for younger children, and had me reaching for a hand to hold.  Overall though, I think this will be a fun movie for the whole family during the holiday season.  Moana makes its debut on November 23, and I can't wait to hear your thoughts!
