On Aug. 12, "Moana
" (PG), will grace the screen at Newtown Park. “Moana” is a sweeping, PG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who is inspired to leave the safety and security of her island on a daring journey to save her people.
Inexplicably drawn to the ocean, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) convinces the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) to join her mission, and he reluctantly helps her become a wayfinder like her ancestors who sailed before her. Together, they voyage across the open ocean on an action-packed adventure, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills her quest and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
