We'll give you five reasons why Moana is more than just your ordinary Disney Princess! And yes, we won't spoil anything. Pinky swear!
She is an independent woman
Moana doesn't need a man in order to complete her quest. Well, Maui is an exception since he's a demigod after all.
She went beyond the norm.
Moana basically broke her father's rules. But she did it to spark a change and prove that there's more to just sitting still and looking pretty.
She did everything to protect her people.
In recorded history, most princesses ask knights and soldiers to protect their kingdom. Moana did the opposite. Yep, she fought the dangers of the sea herself.
She searched for her true identity.
You must come to know yourself before you can lead others. And Moana did just that.
She wants to empower other women.
Moana sailed far beyond the reef surrounding their island which the men weren't able to do. #SLAY
