There’s no doubt that you fell in love with Moana as much as your kids did. It’s the story of a strong princess who is off on an adventure to save her family and people. With great musical numbers, quirky characters and beautiful animation – Moana is a new favorite for many kids and adults. Now that we can get Moana on Blu-Ray and DVD, it’s time to get some great toys and accessories for your kids (and you).
Who didn’t fall in love with Heihei and Pua? Even if they’re just the animal assistance in the movies Disney always puts so much personality in them. Now you can get your own Talking Pua and Heihei toys! Squeeze Pua’s hoof and hear sounds and watch his ears move.
Your kids can be all powerful like Maui and run around the house with their own enchanted Fish Hook. The best part – push the button and it lights up and plays sound effects. Trust me – they’ll be singing “Your Welcome” and enjoying all their magical powers with this in their hands!
And if your little one wants to be like Moana, now they can even have her own musical necklace. Perfect to carry the heart of the ocean in, the abalone styled (plastic) necklace not only lights up but plays music from the movie. It’s adorable and the perfect accessory for their own adventures saving the world!
No movie night would be complete without cups for our favorite drinks. For the kids there is a sturdy tumbler that has water between the two layers. It’s adorable and fun for your kids favorite drinks.
But my favorite new Moana item is the Fish Hook Coffee mug. Probably this is for us bigger kids, but it goes perfectly in my Disney Mug Collection. Wrapped with the story of Moana on the outside, the handle is Maui’s powerful hook and perfect for all of the warm deliciousness you’ll need to power through your day!

Now, “Moana” sets a new course, arriving to homes on Digital HD/3D and Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) on Feb. 21, and on Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on March 7.
Continuing the fun-filled adventure, families can continue their journey filled with hours of extensive and entertaining bonus offerings including: a new, hilarious mini-movie featuring Moana and Maui; an in-depth look at how the people, cultures and heritage of the Pacific Islands shaped the story of “Moana;” revealing Q&A with co-stars Auli‘i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson, and famed animation directors Ron Clements and John Musker; insider access to Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foaʻi, the trio behind the film’s moving music; four mini-documentaries highlighting the movie’s groundbreaking effects; deleted scenes; a deleted song; hidden Easter Eggs; music video; “Inner Workings,” the theatrical short film directed by Leo Matsuda that spotlights the internal struggle between a man’s Brain and Heart; and much, much more.
“Moana” stars Auli‘i Cravalho as the voice of Moana, Dwayne Johnson as the voice of Maui, Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Once Were Warriors,” “Six Days, Seven Nights”) as Moana’s no-nonsense father, Chief Tui; Rachel House (“Whale Rider,” “Hunt for Wilderpeople,” “Eagle vs Shark,” “Boy,” “White Lies”) as Moana’s trusted Gramma Tala; and Nicole Scherzinger (Grammy®-nominated singer, West End’s “Cats”) as Moana’s playful and strong-willed mother, Sina; Jemaine Clement (“The BFG,” “Despicable Me,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” Flight of the Conchords) voices Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab; and Alan Tudyk (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Big Hero 6”) lends his voice to stowaway rooster Heihei.
According to directors Ron Clements and John Musker, the story of “Moana” was inspired by the great explorers who masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. “Voyaging is a real source of pride for many Pacific Islanders, a part of their identity,” says Clements. Many experts believe that about 3,000 years ago, those deep-sea exploratory voyages halted for about a millennium before resuming. This rebirth of exploration sparked the filmmakers’ imaginations, and the heroine at the heart of the story. “The idea of a teenage girl who dreamed of becoming a navigator—considering the abilities of her ancestors—was so appealing,” explains Musker. Moana’s quest to become a wayfinder also serves as a journey of self-discovery, empowering her to find her own identity – a beautiful and powerful message for audiences of all ages and genders.
