What is it with "grown up" CG characters that just feels a little weird!? Moana looks better in motion, though, and the animation looks on par with "real" feature quality. Hate the streaming 2:1, lack of 'Scope widescreen ratio, though. Looks more TV than movie. And if ever there was an argument for this to have a Roman numeral II rather than a 2, that would make it feel a little more "grown up" and epic too. If anything, it looks a bit too close to a retread, but let’s see how it goes…

Because it was meant to be a TV show. They turned this into a movie because Wish sucked and delayed/cancelled the original movie that was supposed to be released on November instead of Moana 2.

Yah, yah, ve know zis! ;)

It doesn’t *look* like television. The original was in a 'Scope widescreen ratio, and it would have been nice (and no reason not to) have this in the same ratio, which would make it feel more like a movie than the streaming compilation it started as. :)

Still pointless, but she seems a good fit.
