Moana by Nay
“I don’t understand the hate Wreck It Ralph is getting for using baby Moana in the teaser. It’s just an easter egg, Disney isn’t trying to be lazy. Disney and Pixar have been doing this sort of thing for years for all their movies so why the hate?”
I’m getting sick of people trying to pit Moana and Coco against each other. We don’t have that many animated films featuring non-white leads. Both films are fantastic in their own rights and both of them deserve to be successful. It’s really telling people want to pit these movies against each other instead of the many movies featuring white characters.
If i get into the Disney College Program the first thing I do when I get to Florida is get a picture with Moana because the soundtrack from the movie has inspired me throughout the application process.
How Far I’ll Go is really motivating me to finish college. I’m so mentally done with school but only have one more year, so I want to finish it out. Sometimes How Far I’ll Go will get stuck in my head and I just think how my classes are my voyage into the ocean and I gotta push on through.
I’m happy that with Elsa, and now Moana, Disney has been upgrading their princesses to queens. I hope this continues!
So, daughter of the chief. I thought you stayed in the village. You know, kissing babies and things.
I’m so sad Moana was not a success when it comes to merchandise. I am afraid she will end up like Merida, who is now pretty much ignored in Princess media, together with Mulan and Pocahontas.
There’s a post on Tumblr about the song that Moana sings to Te Fiti. Someone made a comment about how it proves that only women can help other women and managed to depict Maui as an abuser and a villain. Many people reblogged it despite how fucked up and racist it was. I’m still disgusted to this day that so many people watched the movie and now see him as an abuser nonetheless. The original post is more disgusting than I can even describe.
