The film concentrates on an excellent girl who decides to have an adventure to prove herself a master wayfinder and completes her ancestors’ quest. On the journey, Moana confronts Maui who is the once mighty demigod and they explore the big world together.
The narrative is a fairly predictable hero's journey -- Maui even calls her "The Chosen One" -- but the movie is refreshing for its lack of a love interest; instead Moana learns how to chart her own course.
Where Frozen was a defiantly chilly breath of fresh air, Moana feels somewhat stagnant. Despite a few fantastic deviations (including the lack of a love interest to hinder our hero's development), Moana is still very much a paint-by-numbers narrative.
This is Disney's way of having its formulaic cake and eating it, too: "We know what we're doing here, and we know that you know it, too. So please stop fretting and enjoy while the pieces fall into place."
