Empire (Australasia) - - ON SCREEN - BEN TRAVIS

She might wear a dress and have an an­i­mal side­kick, but Moana — the ef­fer­ves­cent South Pa­cific is­land girl who sets out to save her peo­ple from an en­croach­ing dark­ness — is no or­di­nary Dis­ney Princess. The only ro­mance she pur­sues is the call­ing of the ocean, go­ing against the warn­ings of her fa­ther, trust­ing her gut and tak­ing to the seas, where she res­cues a fallen demi-god, faces sub­aquatic mon­sters, and re­turns the heart of Te Fiti. She’s a true wayfinder — some­one who knows her­self, un­der­stands the his­tory of her peo­ple, and forges her own path to take them into a pros­per­ous fu­ture.
