10 Hidden Details In Disney’s Moana You Totally Missed

2016’s Moana was a wonderful animated Disney movie about the strong-willed daughter of a chief of a Polynesian village. She was voiced by the talented young American actress Auli’i Cravalho. She was chosen to reunite a goddess with an ancient mystical relic. Accompanied by Maui – a legendary demigod who was voiced by former WWE star and current action movie legend Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – their adventure made for a really fun story. There is, however, a lot about the movie you probably aren’t aware of. This video is all about those hidden details and secrets. You’ll have a lot of fun learning about them, we promise you! For example, there’s a cameo from Flounder from 1989’s The Little Mermaid. There are cameos from no less than three characters from 2013’s Frozen. Wreck-It Ralph appears in the movie’s credits. There’s a really neat little collection of references to 2016’s Mad Max: Fury Road. A character in the movie looks a lot like Baymax from Big Hero 6. Flash from Zootopia makes a brief appearance. There’s a nod to Benicio del Toro’s Collector from Guardians of the Galaxy and Smaug from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. There’s an abundance of Hidden Mickeys – just like there are in most Disney movies. There are some clear parallels with 1997’s Hercules movie – which was directed by the same people who directed Moana. And there’s a fun recurring in-joke relating to the rooster character Heihei – all because he was nearly scrapped from the movie completely.
