Moana is an instant Disney all-time classic

Moana is an instant Disney all-time classic MOANA
Disney does it again.
From the directors behind timeless classics The Little Mermaid and Aladdin comes a new Disney fairytale and based on my first screening, Moana will be a classic in our household too.

First thing's first: there's no way I can review this as anything but a New Zealander; a grateful and connected resident of Aotearoa and it's extended Pacific Island whanau. Disney has gifted us in particular a story which will resonate even more than it will anywhere else in the world.
The team behind the film had a wonderful thing to say, too - something they in turn were told during their research in Fiji, Samoa, Tahiti and New Zealand for the film: "The ocean doesn't separate our islands, it connects them".
Moana is full of Pasifika legend; the story pulls strands from here-and-there to weave together a fresh, inspirational and hugely entertaining family adventure which filled me with joy.

Promoters Duco have confirmed that the Joseph Parker vs Andy Ruiz Jr bout will take place at Vector Arena in Auckland on December 10. The fight for the vacant WBO heavyweight title will remain on New Zealand soil after Duco managed to secure the requisite financial backing following Auckland City Council's denial of their bid for public funding last week.

"We are only able to host the event in Auckland because of the tremendous support from our sponsors who grasp just how big an occasion this will be for all New Zealanders."
