Instead of having the usual “wasp-thin” physique of a Disney princess, Moana is muscular, powerful, and beautiful all rolled into one. Disney creators say they felt it was important to create a princess who looked like she could physically hold her own as she embarks on a variety of journeys and escapades. In other words, Moana is a true heroine — smart, powerful, and strong. It’s about time. Unlike previous Disney films, Moana does not revolve around the stereotypical “princess’” love interests, but rather her coming of age story, yet another assertion of her strength and independence. Moana’s combination of strength and beauty will inspire young girls around the world to understand that beauty comes in all shapes in sizes. You go Moana!
