Disney Movie Review: MoanaDisney Movie Review: Moana
November 25, 2016
My 12-year-old daughter had been anticipating this animated movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios since she heard about it more than a year ago. Not only does she like the Disney princesses but she also loves all things related to Hawaii. This seemed like the perfect marriage of her favorites.

But you don't have to have an interest in either, as in the case of my 14-year-old son, to thoroughly enjoy "Moana." That's because the story is engrossing and the animation breath-taking. Plus, much of the original music has been developed in collaboration with "Hamilton" composer and actor Lin-Manual Miranda.
