«Moana» - A preview to enjoy with the family

Moana, a sea of adventures, is the new film by Disney studios. It is directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, responsible for The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. It is screened today in Authors section.

The Festival offers proposals to enjoy with the family. Apart from Mar de Chicos, this year and as finishing touch of a great edition, you will be able to see the last production of Disney animation studios.

It is a proposal with its filmmakers’ seal; Musker and Clements; the directors of The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog and Aladdin, this time are inspired by diverse Maori legends to create an original story, full of humor, exciting sequences and reflections for the children, but without falling into didacticism.

In this opportunity, the story takes place almost 2,000 years ago. The action happens in a little Polynesian island where the young princess Moana, the tribe chief’s daughter, wishes to fulfill a prophesy that says that a hero- a heroin in this case- will join the demigod Maui- with the original voice of Dwayne Johnson- to fight the natural threaten her people are facing.

The teenager, along with her rooster, will make use of her vast knowledge to sail, her excellent relation with the sea- nature is always an ally in animated productions- and her intelligence to reach Mauri, a narcissistic loner, who has the capability to turn his human appearance into an animal’s, and this way fight the dangers that will come up in their path.

As a road movie in the middle of the ocean, Moana poses the way in which the strength of a character and the wit of the other converge to break the curse and help her people. Moana suggest approaching the occidental culture to a fraction of the East.

With the support of a soundtrack with traditional Maori folk themes, instruments and legends of the place it attempts to portray, Musker and Clements are very careful with each visual and narrative detail to open the range and spy new universes that deserve being explored.

Humor, imagination, talent and a classical narrative are the ingredients that fed this sea adventure. Moana is the main event in order to finish the Festival smiling.
