MOW: Episode: 143: Moana & Sexism: A Movie Review
For The Hub topic this week, we are talkin’ about Moana and Sexism with Aimee and Andy. It’s a movie!
Moana is a Walt Disney Animation feature released on November 23, 2016 in the USA. It came out just in time for the 2016 holiday season.
From IMDB: “In Ancient Polynesia, when a terrible curse incurred by Maui reaches an impetuous Chieftain’s daughter’s island, [Moana], she answers the Ocean’s call to seek out the demigod, [Maui], to set things right”.
In the course of our discussion, we entertain the topic of sexism in Disney animated movies. We know the pendulum has been at one particular end throughout the years. But, we are wondering if that pendulum has completely swung to the other side today.
Would you bring your son to watch this movie? Would you bring your daughter to watch this movie?
