Three thousands years ago, the most famous seamen travelled all over the world, sailing through the huge Pacific Ocean, and finding many of the Oceania islands. But, it happens that, for a thousand years, those travels stopped and none knows why. Moana is a teenager who takes part in a dangerous mission in order to show she is a skilled traveller, wanting to accomplish the search of her ancestors. During this travel Moana meets the legendary demigod Maui, with whom she sails the sea in a journey full of action, facing huge fire creatures and apparently insurmountable obstacles.
Moana Waialiki: she is the main character of the movie, a teenage princess who lives on an island of the South Pacific with her father and grandmother. Inspired by the mysterious history told her by her grandmother, Moana longs to understand why her people stopped to travel the world and stayed on their island.
Jefe Tui Waialiki: he is the chief of the people of Motunui, a Polynesian island and he is also the overprotecting and wise Moana’s father.
