Hawaii Mom Blog: Moana Digital HD Movie Night




March 7, 2017

Moana Digital HD Movie Night

Disclosure: A complimentary movie kit was provided by Disney.  This post is in collaboration with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

In October of 2015, I was fortunate to attend a Moana press conference at which attendees were able to learn more about the inspiration behind the movie.  After the press conference, I was very excited to watch the movie, but for one reason or another, our family was not able to see Moana in theaters.

Thanks to Disney, our family was able to watch the Digital HD version via the Disney Movies Anywhere app on our television with the Google Chromecast App during a movie night over the weekend.

Our family movie night not only included Moana, Maui, Heihei, and Pua, but also our close friends, with whom we love spending time with.

We had some of our favorite foods, foods that we grew up with and that are a staple at many get-togethers, and bowls full of popcorn and toppings.

The movie was fantastic. We were entranced by the beauty of the Pacific, and took a closer look at the people who inhabited Motonui. The legends and traditions that the Polynesians have helped to preserve through time were perpetuated in an entertaining, yet respectful way in the movie.

What was very interesting was the focus on wayfinding, and how canoe navigation via the stars, sky, and ocean stopped, and how it was resurrected. It reminded me of the real-life voyage of Hokulea, which is currently in the midst of covering 60,000 nautical miles worldwide. Hokulea uses ancient navigational techniques while promoting sustainability and environmental awareness, which is very similar to what takes place in Moana.

Moana Movie Night was the perfect excuse to get together with our friends, whom we truly consider family, and it made me realize that we should be spending more time with them and other close friends, whom we rarely get to see these days, as schedules are now packed with kids' sports games and activities.

Movie night gave us time to eat great food, catch up with our friends, and reflect on happy memories.

We all enjoyed Moana, and I love that we can watch Moana anytime, anywhere via the Disney Movies Anywhere app!

Thank you to Disney for the perfect movie night!

Moana is available on Disney Movies Anywhere and Blu-ray.
