Moana lives on the island of Motunui and will one day follow her father and become chief of the people. However, as a small child feels already attracted by the sea. At the moment when no one gets to it, the ocean Moana presents the heart of Te Fiti. Her parents try to bring her to the Motunui is the safest place and no one needs to leave the island.The fishermen of the island complain that they no longer find fish. Moana is proposing to seek out fish outside the reef, but she finds her father’s dislike because he has set the rule that no one outside the reef has anything to look for. She tries it in spite of all that and injures herself at the ankle since she can’t sail.Her grandmother leads her to an island where she finds boats, there she finds out that they were boaters and now they are no longer because Maui stole the heart of Te Fiti and the island is also threatened by darkness. Moana thought this was a dream that the ocean reacts to, which it was not. Suddenly her grandmother gets very sick and she decides to find Maui. When she finds this, she notes that she is very convinced of herself and says that she has to give her an autograph.Maui can turn into different animals thanks to his hook, which you have to get back from Tamatoa for the first time, who is not even in love. However, this does not work at first and the first fight against Te Ka goes a bit backwards. Maui leaves Moana as his hook is broken and Moana decides to try it alone. With success. She is supposed to bring her heart back to Te Fiti and Maui distracts Te Ka. However, Moana notes when she stands on the island that there is no te Fiti. When Moana recognizes Te Ka te Fiti, she shows her the heart and this also comes running.Moana sets the heart and Te Ka turns back into Te Fiti, and then looks at Maui for the motto what do you want from me. He apologizes to her. She takes his apology and gives him a new hook, since he was then more than over. She gives Moana a boat so she can sail home and then goes back to her sleep.When Moana returns to her island, she is happily greeted by her parents. On newly built large boats, they travel together with the villagers to the sea.In a post-credits scene, Tamatoa is still left on his back and wondering if people would care more for him if he was a Jamaican crab named Sebastian.
My conclusion: Vaiana is among my 3 favorite princesses. It’s all about the music and the ocean feeling. I even dragged it in English 20x before. He has a soothing effect like I think. Also the scene after the credits I find funny, since Tamatoa is still on his back and no Sebastian has become. Maui changes thanks to Vaiana yes also completely his worldview even if he can not transform without a hook, that is the catch. I find the movie really well done and when I see Auli I see Vaiana at the same time.
