Moana | Ratings & Reviews

"I’m not the correct person to write about the cultural politics surrounding Moana. I am, however, a mad sweaty nerd for animation, and this gorgeous Polynesian family adventure is told with a grandness that is kind of expected from Disney at this point."

"Keeps with the tradition that made Disney the leader in animated fairy and folk tales, and yet, showing a thoroughly modern touch, it's the first to do so without so much as suggesting a love interest."

VarietyVariety

"Despite Dwayne Johnson's solid scene-stealing, the wave-taming Moana gets a true hero's journey in this South Seas stunner."

Total FilmTotal Film

"There's not a prince or potential husband in sight; Moana's future is entirely defined by her leadership and ability to fend off the mansplaining know-it-all Maui. As messages go, we'll take it."

Time OutTime Out

"You succumb to an enjoyable experience that splits the difference between mythology and merchandising."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"An amiable new animated musical that speaks to the tween-princess-sleepover demographic while tapping into Polynesian myths and making a modest, decently intentioned gesture at diversity."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A terrific mix of aquatic action (with the animation of the ocean a particular visual highlight) and inspirational thinking about following your own path."

StuffStuff

"Moana will be a classic in our household."

"A lovely, reassuring hug of a movie ..."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Amazing adventure, colour explosions and catchy songs. This is amazing."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Contemporary Disney at its finest - a vibrantly rendered adventure that combines state-of-the-art CG animation with traditional storytelling and colorful characters, all enlivened by a terrific voice cast."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A crowd-pleasing oceanic musical with big tunes and beguiling characters, Moana is likely to thwack a big smile on your face."
