Thanks to Disney Home Entertainment for sending us a movie kit to celebrate Moana’s release.
You all know that our family loves movie nights so when I was asked to host a movie night for the Digital HD release of Moana I was really excited. We didn’t see the movie when it was out in theaters so we had been waiting for it to become available so we could watch it at home.
We had a chance to watch the movie this past weekend, before it came out, using the Disney Movies Anywhere app. I loved not having to run to the store to pick it up and that we could easily watch it on our television using our Google Chromecast to access the app.
About the movie:
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Moana, an epic adventure about a spirited teen who sets sail on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana (Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the once mighty demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson), and together they cross the ocean on a fun- filled, action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and impossible odds. Along the way, Moana discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
To celebrate the movie coming out, I set up a table with our dinner and some snacks, mixing family traditions with some of our favorite things. When I was growing up, my family had pizza almost every weekend. It was a tradition that I loved and one that I have tried to continue with my family. I set out my boys’ favorite movie snack- popcorn! To make it a bit more fun I put the popcorn in a (clean) sand pail with a shovel to scoop it out on to their plates. The other snack I served was Goldfish crackers because they went along with the ocean themed movie. For dessert I decorated cupcakes with colorful sprinkles.
After we ate, we cuddled together on the couch and watched the movie. I loved everything about Moana, from the music to the characters to the storyline. Most of all though, I loved spending time with my kids after the crazy week that we had!
Moana is out NOW on Blu-ray and Disney Movies Anywhere. Have you seen it yet?
