FILM / 6.10pm / Sky Cinema Premiere
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.
