In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain’s daughter’s island, she answers the Ocean’s call to seek out the demigod to set things right. —IMDB

Disney at the top of their game. This is going to be an instant classic. The animation is wonderfully vivid, the music and songs absolutely perfect, the characters are rich, the cultural stories it draws on are interesting and have depth, the humour is clever, and the story is warm and inspirational. This is one that will be watched again and again. Even at 1 hr 47 mins, there is not one moment that is boring or seems long. The kids in the audience were rapt and it was great to hear their laughter. The idiotic chicken is a delight! Try and catch this one at the cinema if you can. An absolute must for the family.
