Strongly recommended. Moana means "ocean, wide expanse of water, deep sea" in Maori and Hawaiian and used for both genders. This seems apropos of the latest Disney movie and princess, who is scripted without any specific gender limitations on her invented Polynesian island. Moana is simply a hero and leader with whom everyone can fall in love. Moana is a remarkable addition to a lineage that evolved from Beauty And The Beast. The character is perfectly voiced by 16-year-old native Hawaiian Auli'i Cravalho (her first movie), gorgeously rendered - - overcoming my instinctual distaste for Pixar-style animation - - and delightfully scored. Samoan Dwayne Johnson (San Andreas) contributes hugely (literally) as buddy/demi-god/trickster, Maui. Actually, all of the major actors are of Pacific Island descent. Some have quibbled over the possible exploitation of Polynesian culture but Moana tries very hard to honor the contributions of those people to ocean exploration and seamanship. It succeeds splendidly.
