On November 23, 2016, Disney added a new heroine to the Disney collection. The movie “Moana” was instantly popular for various reasons. The princess, for once, had a realistic body type. She was not a non-curvy, disproportional, idealistic character, instead she had colored skin, a realistic body, proportional facial features and even a crazy mop of hair.

This new movie is a great role model and inspiration for kids since it teaches them many lessons. Moana never gives up on her “can do” attitude and is not discouraged. She is smart, brave, and resourceful. She also believes in herself , which given the more realistic look, is more beneficial to children than other heroines. Daniela Ocampo (9) believes the movie should get a 10 out of 5 star rating and thinks the movie is very inspirational.

Another way Moana is different from previous films is that it lacks romance. It is solely a movie about a girl’s journey and her challenger. It is not a princess in need of rescue but a princess who must save her people.

A common Disney trait this movie shared was the music. Moana is full of catchy tunes that keep the children’s eyes glued to the screen.
