The inspiration behind the Disney Moana Animation
According to directors, “Moana” was inspired by the great explorers who first navigated the Pacific, discovering the islands of Oceania. “Voyaging is a real source of pride for many Pacific Islanders, a part of their identity,” says Roy Clements. Many experts believe that about 3,000 years ago, those deep-sea exploratory voyages halted for about a millennium before resuming. This rebirth of exploration sparked the filmmakers’ imaginations and the heroine at the heart of the story. “The idea of a teenage girl who dreamed of becoming a navigator—considering the abilities of her ancestors—was so appealing,” explains Musker.
