Last week I took the boys to a special Moana preview in the city. I have been super excited to see this movie since I heard about it at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration earlier this year. I had no idea what the plot would be but I was SO excited to see a movie with a diverse character such as Moana.
We were invited to a special screening of Moana by The Moms Network. The boys were SO excited. Mainly because they had been seeing the trailers on the Disney Channel for the past few months. SUBWAY was awesome enough to sponsor the screening with their new Fresh and Fit meals that include a child size sandwich, apple slices and a Honest juice box.
The Moana Movie
From the moment the movie started I was drawn all the way in. The music was SO SO good! (I immediately downloaded the entire soundtrack on spotify) Plus Lin-Manuel Miranda did the soundtrack so it is just full of brilliance. For someone who is not all the way into kid’s movies, I was SUPER enthralled with this one. I think what I loved most was the Hawaiian/Samoan culture, the flawless intermingling of the language and the story was just so great.#Disney's #Moana is a FANTASTIC movie!

There is so much more that I can say about the movie but I really don’t want to spoil it. What I will say is that I REALLY appreciated that the main character (Moana) was a very strong female lead in the movie. The focus was on her strength both her natural born ability and the strength she had to find within herself to continue and forge her own path.
I cried a bit and I laughed a lot. Not gonna lie, I’m probably going to take the kids again over the thanksgiving weekend so we can go to the theaters and sing the songs–now that we have listened to them a million times.
Today I’m sharing a ton of coloring sheets for the kids (or you! no judgement here!) plus some fun activity sheets to keep the kids busy while you do your holiday cooking.
