Of all the 2016 animated films that I’ve seen, this one is definitely my favorite!
“Well, no need to stay for the rest of the review!”
Let me give you some background. Disney was planning to release 2 animated films in 2016 as part of their official Canon: Zootopia and Moana. Ever since I first heard about it, I was way more excited for Zootopia than I was for Moana, although everyone else I knew had the opposite feeling! Zootopia was a sort of anthropomorphic animal mystery/crime/buddy cop movie that I was super excited for whilst we didn’t know much about Moana other than it would be another Disney Princess film, this time a Polynesian one.
But after watching both films, I ended up loving Moana more than I did Zootopia and again, this was opposite from what everyone else was telling me! Most people ended up falling in love with Zootopia and its morals while I ended up falling in love with Moana! It’s actually the only film in this Disney Revival era that I truly “love”!

Since it’ll be a while until I post my review of Disney’s latest film, Moana, you can find out what I thought of the film in this video podcast I did w/Rachel Wagner from 54disneyreviews.com. Let me know in the comments what you think!

We finally got the teaser trailer for Disney’s upcoming film, Moana, and it’s looking amazing! The animation is gorgeous, the characters (especially the pig) look awesome, and it looks like a great deal of fun! I wish we saw more characters though, but this was a joy to see after the tragedy that happened in my hometown this morning!
What do you think of the teaser trailer? Are you excited for the movie?
