Moana: Queen of Plant Movies
It’ll be a while before I can get screenshots but I thought I should let all you plants-in-movies devotees know while you can still see it in theaters that Moana is basically the movie we’ve all been waiting for.
There are dozens of distinct and probably identifiable plants, including a whole bunch of Polynesia canoe plant crops. It puts even Studio Ghibli to shame in that department (though not in narrative or characterization, obv). Not to mention the lichens, and mosses, and corals. Everything is depicted in exquisite detail, including all the plant fiber arts and textiles, and the wood and stone and shells and starfields.
It’s an incredible-looking movie, but a special treat for you plant fans. Extremely worth your time if you can see it. I’m looking forward to taking dozens of screenshots and gawking over all its particulars when I can get my hands on a digital copy.
