Something really cool is happening with Disney princesses. They are dreaming bigger than ever. They are becoming more diverse. Their adventures are more daring. They are reflecting the girls of today much more effectively than Disney princesses of the past. When I was a girl, I wanted to be Princess Leia. In real life, I had Lady Diana and her noble charity work to admire. Today my daughter has Moana, among other strong young female characters to enjoy. She doesn’t have to look far to find a Disney princess who looks like her, meaning that now the Disney characters are starting to reflect more diversity.
So yes, I am excited about Moana. That it exists to inspire little girls. And I’m delighted to be able to bring you an opportunity to win a digital HD code so that you can share it with your family.

Here is a brief official description:
According to directors Ron Clements and John Musker (Aladdin and The Little Mermaid), the story of “Moana” was inspired by the great explorers who masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. “Voyaging is a real source of pride for many Pacific Islanders, a part of their identity,” says Clements. Many experts believe that about 3,000 years ago, those deep-sea exploratory voyages halted for about a millennium before resuming. This rebirth of exploration sparked the filmmakers’ imaginations, and the heroine at the heart of the story. “The idea of a teenage girl who dreamed of becoming a navigator—considering the abilities of her ancestors—was so appealing,” explains Musker. Moana’s quest to become a wayfinder also serves as a journey of self-discovery, empowering her to find her own identity – a beautiful and powerful message for audiences of all ages and genders.
