5 Reasons You Should Watch Moana

5 Reasons You Should Watch Moana

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Moana. We have always been the family that waits until movies come out on cable or Netflix to watch. Our son has Autism. Going to a movie theater would not be as fun because we would be focused on watching him and keeping him entertained.

Watching and enjoying movies at home works for us because we can pause the movie when needed. It took me several hours to finish watching Moana due to many distractions and interruptions in our household.

Moana is a hilarious family friendly movie. I had no expectations and all I knew about the movie was that it was set in Hawaii. I found myself laughing at the many one-liners from Maui.

Moana and Maui do not exactly agree or get along when they first meet. Maui pushes Moana aside and wants to go out on his own. Moana has a goal to save her people. They run into disagreements but find themselves having to work together. They discover they each have their strengths and weaknesses but work together to help each other.

Still curious about Moana, be sure to check out our review of the movie!

Disney Moana

Here are 5 Reasons You Should Watch Moana:

1. Appreciate Family

Moana is faced with her people coming to hear about their coconuts not producing like they should. They also can no longer catch fish. Moana suggests changes that her father disagrees with but she is determined to try to help her people.

Her father loves her and is trying to protect her from voyaging. It is her Gramma that encourages her to go forth and restore the heart of Te Fiti!

2. Believe In Yourself

At a very young age, Moana stumbles on to the beach where she discovers the ocean chose her.

On her mission to save her island, Moana is faced with many obstacles. She learns to believe in herself and trust her instincts. If she puts her mind to it, she can figure out how to get out of trouble.

Her first obstacle was her own father and that is only the beginning. Moana is stubborn in that once she sets her mind to something, she is determined to succeed at it!

3. Value Strength Around You

Moana sets out on her journey to save her people. Heihei, the not-so-smart chicken is her companion on the raft. In many ways, he saves her. He also teaches her patience.

When Moana finds Maui she quickly realizes he has other plans. She and Maui have different plans and hilarity and adventure ensues. Can they work together?

Moana learns so much about herself from Heihei, Maui and her Gramma.

4. Be Strong/Be Moana

Moana faces her biggest challenges on her journey to save her island. She and Maui are forced to be strong for each other. They encourage each other and even swoop in to save one another just in time.

No matter how you feel personally, remember to be strong for those closest to you. Be brave and strong for your family, friends and yourself.

5. Be a shapeshifter

Learn to be a shapeshifter. Be open and willing to adapt to your surroundings. Be willing to help others.

After watching Moana, I love that this movie is about personal empowerment. This movie isn’t just for little girls, boys can learn to believe in themselves, too. Children can learn to solve their problems, help others and be brave no matter what.

This movie also teaches you to listen to your family. You may not always agree with them but they are looking out for you.

Moana has so many friends who have her back including the ocean, Maui, Heihei and her family. This movie reminds me that when I am feeling depressed, lonely and unloved to remind myself that I do have people in my corner. Never underestimate others, including yourself.

Do not let your actions define you. Moana showed Te Fiti that. She also taught Maui that. Moana is an overall great movie for all to see, no matter your age!

Moana comes out on Digital HD/3D and Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) on Feb. 21, and on Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on March 7! Be sure to pick up a copy!
