Moana Is Pure Magic

by TG's Claire | Nov 28, 2016
Hey TGs!

I'm updating my blog because IT'S ALMOST CHRISTMAS! And I hope you're enjoying the school hols. One of the best things about the school hols? The Boxing Day flicks!

Yep, just four sleeps until Moana is out in cinemas! Check out the trailer right here...

Some of you would have read my earlier blog post from when I went to a special Moana screening, but I thought I'd update it with this super epic video Q&A with Auli'i Cravalho
the Hawaiian teen voice actor behind the heroine. Here she is!

How cool is Auli'i? THE COOLEST, that's how cool. 

Here are my thoughts from my earlier post from that early screening of Moana

1. OMTG it is SO BEAUTIFUL. It is breathtaking.
2. That little pig who is Moana's friend - can it be MY friend? 
3. I'm not crying, YOU are. 

Moana is all about a Polynesian girl, the teen daughter of an island chief, who must go on an adventure to save her people. If you love the beach, long summers, coconuts and silly chickens, you're going to love this - it has it all. I think Moana is the hero we deserve: brave and headstrong, super determined and an unstoppable force of nature. I wish I could be more like her!

Did you know a lot of the voice actors have Islander backgrounds? For example, newcomer Auli'i s part-native Hawaiian (her singing voice! SWOON!). Her spirited, feisty grandma is voiced by Rachel House, who is part Maori and who you might remember as Paula in Hunt for the Wilderpeople. And let's not forget Maui, the demigod who Moana journeys with, who is voiced by actual legend The Rock. The Rock, a.k.a Dwayne Johnson, is part Samoan. 

So you know what? I'm calling it. Moana is the next Frozen and you're going to LOVE the music. Catch it in cinemas on Boxing Day

Are you excited about Moana? If you had a talking animal sidekick, what would it be?

    Hey Julia, Moana IS really good. I've been listening to Alecia Cara singing How Far I'll Go (GREAT song) today since it got a nod in the Oscars for best song. Who's your fave character in Moana?
