I watched Moana on Nov 22nd in my theater and How Far I’ll Go has been stuck in my head since then.
I haven’t been moved this much by a Disney movie to the point of crying in so long. I think I cried like realistically, five times. But it felt to be more like at least 20.
Moana is beautiful. And reminds me so much of my homeland in the Philippines.
My mother doesn’t like animated movies much, as English is her second language. So they can be hard to follow. But when she saw the island culture, I know she was moved too and comforted to see something so beautiful yet familiar on a large screen.
Please go watch Moana. You won’t be disappointed.
