Disney princess movie-Polynesian style. A brave young girl sees an opportunity to explore the world when her beloved island home comes under attack by supernatural forces. She sets out to put things right with the help of vain demi-god Maui and a brainless chicken. Many aspects of the film feel fresh (like Lin-Mauel Miranda’s music) blending well with Disney’s traditional elements, and the animation is marvelous. The overall journey on the other hand seems slight, and the limited supporting cast keeps the picture in middle of the pack Disney status. Maui and the princess are fantastic though.
