The award-winning animated film was a box-office success in 2016, with the story of Moana worming its way to the hearts of young and older people alike. The sexy character was a heroine in her own right, straying away from the classic damsels-in-distress.
In Hawaiian, the name means the ocean. In some countries, the title of the movie changed to Oceania or Vaiana due to conflict issues. The film boasts of an unusual premise, star-studded voice actors, and exceptionally catchy songs. The impressive cast features the voices of Nicole Scherzinger, Alan Tudyk, and Jemaine Clement.
If those celebrities sound relatively unknown, then you will recognize the voice of Dwayne Johnson. The popular actor voiced Maui, the hot and muscular demigod who started the catastrophic chain of events in the story.
Auliʻi Cravalho made her debut as the leading character. Funnily enough, the young actress initially did not want to audition for the part. However, her talent agent encouraged her to pursue it. She was the last person to try out for the role, and the lovely brunette got it. In this case, Disney did save the best for last.
The most popular song in Moana’s soundtrack is How Far I’ll Go. Auliʻi Cravalho sang it during the film. Alessia Cara also recorded her version, which appeared at the end credits.
The story happens in the fictional Polynesian island Motunui. To make the movie culturally authentic, the directors Ron Clements and John Musker went to Polynesia and learned their culture.
Most Americans would think Moana came from Hawaii, but it is highly she came from Samoa. There is much debate on how Moana holds up against cultural truths. But there is no denying the animated film is a feast for the senses.
Disney has a history of creating original animated movies over producing sequels. However, with the recent success of follow-up hits Frozen 2 and Ralph Breaks the Internet, the chances of getting a sequel to Moana are getting higher. Early in 2019, there have been rumors of a sequel, but the production company has kept quiet on the subject.
The film’s ending was incredibly open for a sequel, especially with Moana becoming a Wayfinder, someone who navigates the open seas. The possibilities are endless for this young, vibrant heroine. If ever Disney does decide to proceed with a second movie, we are sure that fans of the first film would be ecstatic.
While waiting for their confirmation, feel free to browse through this lovely collection of images. Here you will find teasing glimpses of this beautiful girl’s boobs and ass. We have not seen Moana in a bikini, which is quite ironic since the whole story happens at the beach. However, there is a real swimsuit collection named after the fierce character.
