According to a press release by Temple Parks Foundation, Moana is based on stories from Polynesian mythology, Moana tells the story of an adventurous teenager who sets sail on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demigod Maui, who guides her in her quest to become a master way-finder. Together they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds. Along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she always sought: her own identity."
