Please note: This movie is based loosely on Polynesian mythology. It received some bad press for not being accurate enough in the way the islanders and their gods are portrayed. If you are sensitive to this, I suggest using it as a teaching tool and asking your students to compare the movie to the real history. Perhaps do a short unit on Polynesian history so the record is clear for your students. It may be worth it to have a classroom discussion about movies that are based on real life events and how they shouldn’t be considered the historical authority for that event.

Note: If you like Hamilton and Lin-Manuel Miranda’s genius then you’ll enjoy the original songs he wrote for the movie. If your a super Hamilton fan, the style is unmistakable. I had flashbacks from Hamilton while watching this film : )

An answer key is not included as many questions are open-ended and encourage students to analyze the film. Many answers will not fit into a ‘box’. Students are encouraged to construct their own meaning from the characters’ dialogue and behavior.

Here are my tips for using this Moana Movie Guide in your classroom:

  1. Print one, double-sided movie guide for each student
  2. Preview each question on the movie guide as you come to it before resuming the movie
  3. Pause at the times designated on the movie guide and help students if necessary
    • Discussion here is great, encourage and allow students to share their ideas and thoughts for any question
    • Discourage students from simply copying answers
    • If needed, and if time allows, feel free to rewind and show important parts of the movie for additional analysis
  4. After completing the short answers on the movie guide, allow 5-10 minutes for each essay question at the end
  5. On average, completing this movie guide will require about 30-45 minutes in addition to the length of the movie
