When it comes to heartwarming movies, there's one company that rules them all.Disney has given us some absolute classics over the years. If you’re feeling down, there’s truly nothing better than a good old Disney movie.
And surprisingly, a more recent addition became an instant classic.... Moana.
Since it hit the global box office in 2016...Disney’s Moana has become quite the hit amongst the kids.
Set in Ancient Polynesia, the movie centers on teen, Moana, who has to seek out the Demigod to save her village.After the Demigod stole the heart of the goddess, Te Fiti, Moana follows the calling of the ocean and sets out on a daring mission to find Maui to set things right.
Of course, her venture is far from plane sailing...Her aim to set things right quickly becomes harder than she first anticipates.
The movie was dubbed as a step forward for Disney's "diversity issue."

Maui was right in front of them scanning their items.

He even had a surprise in store...
