the House of Mouse once again de­liv­ers a princess­themed an­i­mated mu­si­cal that will de­light adults as well as the in­tended younger au­di­ence. This time, the set­ting is an­cient Poly­ne­sia, where sparky leader-to-be Moana (voiced by Hawai­ian teenager Auli’i Cravalho) sets off on an oceanic quest to save her peo­ple with the help of re­luc­tant demi-god Maui (a won­der­ful Dwayne John­son). The songs are very catchy – with a stand­out be­ing Je­maine Cle­ment as a gi­ant her­mit crab chan­nelling David Bowie in shiny – while the vi­su­als are imag­i­na­tive and strik­ing. With a sharp script that cre­ates char­ac­ters to care and root for, this is a rol­lick­ing ad­ven­ture and great fun.
