As I write this, there is torrential rain pouring down the outside of my window and the sky is a forbidding shade of grey. All in all, I consider myself very fortunate that there are plenty of bright, colourful trailers to chase away my blues, such as the latest offering from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Moana.
The trailer is everything the weather here isn’t, full of bright sunshine and iridescent blues to chase away the cold, upcoming winter. Complimenting the stunning visuals are wonderful character designs and some fantastic acting by both Dwayne Johnson and newcomer Auli’l Cravalho as they travel together to save their people.
The jokes flow like the tides of the ocean, incredibly subtle in the telling, but able to leave you out of your depth if you don’t pay close attention.
Moana looks set to be the warmest film of the winter. Here’s hoping it lives up to its potential.
Moana is in cinemas November 23rd!
