MOANA (2016): The Thing I Liked…

What I like most about Moana is that it’s a well told story about a young girl who’s brave, strong and courageous enough to follow her heart. Set in Ancient Polynesia and starring Auli’i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, JeRmaine Clement and  Nicole Scherzinger, Moana also scores quite highly on the ‘animated cuteness’ factor, particularly baby Moana.

Cinderella (2015) is still my favourite Disney movie, in large part because of how much I enjoyed the recent live-action remake. If I had to choose between Brave (2012) and Moana for the preferred Disney story about the adventures of a courageous young girl, Brave definitely wins. I just found the characters more entertaining, the story personally more relatable and engaging. Nevertheless, I say watch Moana because it’s good – and who knows, it may end up being your favourite.

Happy Film Loving

Teaser Trailer

International Teaser Trailer

Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the original teaser had me intrigued, but after seeing this international teaser, I’m definitely excited. Also, I basically already feel like I’m Moana.

Hooray to another very capable princess!

Rogue One – A Star Wars Story… That’s right; starring Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Forrest Whitaker and Genevieve O’reilly, we have another new Star Wars movie…

Teaser Trailer

Trailer 1

I’m going to admit that I’m not very excited about this one. But then again, I’m still yet to watch a single Star Wars film. Reason being, fantasy generally isn’t my favourite genre. Nevertheless, I couldn’t help but notice that the teaser trailer makes this film look more ‘low budget’ than Star Wars – Episode 7- The Force Awakens. it may be because it is.

Those who really love the franchise likely won’t agree, but I’m just thinking, isn’t this overkill? It still feels like The Force Awakens was released just yesterday.

Instead of J.J. Abrams, Gareth Edwards is directing. Riz Ahmed, Jonathan Aris and Donnie Yen also star.

Rogue One – A Star Wars Story Release Dates: December 16th, 2016 (US, UK, GER)…
