Day 4: Contemporary Entertainment

Activity 1: Moana

In late 2016, the movie Moana was released by Disney. It’s a beautiful story about a young Polynesian girl from the fictional island of Motunui, who goes on a big adventure.

Watch the trailer for Moana and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. If you’ve seen the movie, you can include your favorite part! Tell us as much as you can about the movie. What is it about? Who are the main characters in the movie? What do they do in the movie? Where do they go?

Moana is a Polynesian girl that gets Maui shapeshifter demigod of the wind and sea hero of men help her return the heart of Te Fiti. Te Fiti is a god that has the power to create life.

The main characters in the movie are Moana, Maui and Te Fiti.

They go to a big Crab to receive Maui hook so he can shapeshift into any animal. Then they go to give the heart of Te Fiti to her.


  1. Hey Samuel,
    I like your Summary about Maui and Moana how they go out to get the heart of Te Fiti.

    Good Work

  2. Hey there Samuel, thanks for sharing your thoughts on Moana and writing a brief summary of the movie. I have seen it once and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was cool how the audience learned a bit about Maui legends. The songs were great too! My class last year would beg me to play the Moana soundtrack while they were working.

    How many times have you seen Moana? What is your favourite movie of all time?

    Thanks, Billy
