The animated Disney film Moana is a well-executed and inspiring tale about our relationship with the earth and sea, and how we...or rather men, can damage it by hunting for praise from others.

I think I enjoyed this more than FROZEN, in part, because it subverts so many of the tropes... and unlike FROZEN it wasn't based on a fairy tale that I adored, as it had previously been told. I think this story goes further in throwing those old tropes out the window, while honoring new ones. And,
it is a tale told through characters, the characters and story are at the center. We don't spend a lot of time being "told", so much as being "shown". In other words, it's not preachy.
