A musical adventure that’s a worthy addition alongside The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. – Peter Debruge, Variety
Moana (/moʊˈɑːnə/) is a 2016 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy comedy adventure film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. It is the 56th Disney animated feature film. The film was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker and co-directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams.

Featuring the voices of Auli’i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Jemaine Clement, Nicole Scherzinger and Alan Tudyk, the film tells the story of Moana, the strong-willed daughter of the chief of a Polynesian tribe, who is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite a mystical relic with a goddess. When a blight strikes her island, Moana sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod, in the hope of saving her people.
It received two Academy Award nominations at the 89th Academy Awards: one for Best Animated Feature and another for Best Original Song (“How Far I’ll Go”).
