Disney Animated Canon Movie #70*: "Moana"
Succinct review first:
More so than any other animated Disney film of this new era, more so than even "Frozen", "Moana" hit me right square in the childhood. It is damn near perfect. I love everything about it. Everything.
Okay, this could easily turn into a gush-fest, so let's get into specifics. Above all else, I love Moana herself. She's a fantastic character and such and awesome heroine. The songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda are terrific. The animation is gorgeous. I love the themes of redemption and the triumph of love and life. And my goodness, I love Maui! I love my magic wrestler genie grandpa!
Ron Musker and John Clements are officially The Best and I eagerly await whatever they want to do next.
