I liked Frozen, but I thought that Olaf’s Frozen Adventure was really bad. The music wasn’t even close to the quality of Frozen, the message of the entire thing was weird and at 20 minutes, it felt so incredibly long, it should have been impossible to feel that long. In short, to say that I disliked it, is putting it way too mildly.

But then an ancient curse starts to affect their island, a curse set into motion by the demi-god Maui (Dwayne Johnson). Moana knows that she has to do something about it: she has to find Maui and make sure that he makes things right. And that means leaving the island.

Moana is a beautifully animated film with absolutely fantastic movie. There are some issues but I was able to really fall into the film regardless.

Hiro is not really excited by the idea – until he visits the campus and sees what everybody is working on, although Tadashi’s medical robot Baymax (Scott Adsit) is the least impressive thing. So Hiro gets to work to get accepted into uni. But the day this happens, catastrophe strikes and Hiro finds himself alone with Baymax, trying to style him into a superhero who can make things right again.

Big Hero 6 was a thoroughly entertaining film with a great sense of humor and a love for the superhero genre in general. I really loved watching it.
