Rapid Reviews | Is ‘Moana’ Really One of Disney’s Best Movies?

Disney has been producing animated musicals since the birth of the animated musical, turning out classic films by the truckload, with just enough duds to imbue their audience with a sense of healthy skepticism. So when a film like Moana comes along we have to ask ourselves, is this another The Little Mermaid or Aladdin? Or is it another Home on the Range or The Black Cauldron?

You deserve answers, but you’re busy, and you don’t have a lot of time. Fortunately, you’ve got Rapid Reviews. Every week our illustrious film critic William Bibbiani is here to review the biggest and most interesting new releases, and give you everything you need to know in just sixty short seconds!
