Moana (2016)
Synopsis: An adventurous teenager sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demigod Maui, who guides her in her quest to become a master way-finder. Together they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds. Along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she always sought: her own identity.

where you are...

I like to dance with the water.

The undertow and the waves.

The water is mischievous, ha !

I like how it misbehaves.

The village may think I'm crazy.

Or say that I drift too far.

But once you know what you like.

Well there you are.

You are your father's daughter.

Stubbornness and pride.

Mind what he says, but remember.

You may hear a voice inside..

And if the voice starts to whisper.

To follow the farthest star.

Moana, that voice inside

is who you are....



I was only looking at the boats.

I wasn't gonna get on them.

Come on.

There's something I

need to show you.

I wonder to bring you here from

the moment you open your eyes.

This is a sacred place.

The place of Chiefs.

There would come a time

When you will stand on this peaked place.

A stone on this mountain.

Like I did.

Like my father did.

And his father and every chief that is ever been.

And on that day...

We knew at your stone.

You will raise this whole

island higher.

You are the future of

our people, Moana.

May are not out there.

There are right here.

It's time to be who they need you to be.

We make our nets from the fibers.

(We make our nets...)

(... from the fiber )

The water is sweet inside.

We use the leaves

to build fires.

We cook up the meat inside.

The village believe in us. (Huh)

That's right.

The village believe. (Huh)

The island gives us what we need.

And no one leaves.

So here I'll stay.

My home and my people beside me.

And when I think of tomorrow.

There we are.

I lead the way.

I'll have my people to guide me.

We'll build our future together.

Where we are.

Cause every path leads you back to.

Where you are.

You can find happiness right

(where you are)
