Little Lion Bookworm's Review: I like how Moana is just different from the others on her island. There's a lot of trouble in the movie but they make everything be really happy in the ending. Maui is the demi-god, but also causes trouble. Moana's people really love the island and never go beyond their reef. But Moana just can't stop going to the ocean and doesn't know why.
Maui interrupts--"It's actually Maui, shapeshifter, demi-god of the wind and sea, hero of men." There are three different problems but all get better even though it seems impossible. My favorite part is the ending where Moana is happy, Maui is happy, and Moana's people are happy. And everyone is happy.
Rating: Four paws--see it in the theater and get the DVD if you want.

Ages: Rated PG, LL says ages 5 and up, but just warn your child they might be a little scared. She went to daddy's lap during the first time they went to the lava monster until the end.
Dr Bookworm note: the music is still playing on loop in my head, but at least it's good music. See below for a sample.
