Moana’s kindness when facing Te Ka’s anger is the decisive factor in helping Te Ka return back to Te Fiti – the living mother island.

Before embarking on the journey to restore Te Fiti’s heart and save her people, Moana didn’t know a thing about sailing. However, she learned that she was far more powerful than she ever imagined and moved forward bravely. “Don’t hesitate, just keep going”, that’s exactly what Moana taught us.

#3 We all want to be loved

Do you know why Maui stole Te Fiti’s heart in the first place? The reason is simply that he wants to receive love and approval from humans. In this demi-god’s opinion, the easiest way to achieve this goal is to take Te Fiti’s heart.

#4 Never be afraid of being different

It is not Moana, it is Grandma Tala who teaches this lesson most clearly. She never cared about other people’s eyes nor let their thoughts affect her life. That’s what keeps her happy all her life and she also tries to teach this meaningful lesson to Moana by encouraging her to set sail to restore Te Fiti’s heart.

#5 Make a mistake? Fix it

Maui stole Te Fiti’s heart because he thought it would bring joy to humans. However, this action had made the ocean be severely damaged. With Moana’s companion and help, Maui realized his mistake and repaired the damage he had caused. Therefore, don’t be afraid to admit your mistake, just fix it!

#6 The ones we love never leave us, their lessons last

Grandma Tala passes away forever; however, her valuable lessons are always etched in Moana’s heart, especially the lessons of difference and family’s love. These precious messages are one of the main factors that help Moana successfully restore Te Fiti’s heart and save her people.

#7 Never give up

Moana’s journey to go beyond the reefs and restore Te Fiti’s heart has encountered many obstacles. She was caught in a typhoon, hit the rocky seas, and was rejected by Maui – the demi-god she sought for help. Despite many failures, Moana still never gives up but always keeps moving forward and fighting for her goals. Never forget the lesson Moana teaches you: “If you don’t succeed at first, let’s try again!”

#8 Bravely face your fears

This lesson is best told in the battle between Moana and Te Ka. Facing Te Ka – the Goddess of fire with terrible power, Moana, of course, feels a little scared. However, she does not let this fear back her down but decides to bravely face it. All her efforts have paid off with her successfully making Te Ka return to Te Fiti.

#9 Follow your heart

Moana has always felt a special connection to the ocean. However, due to her people’s fear of the ocean, she ignored this feeling. It was only when Moana listened to her heart and decided to set sail that she understood why she always had the feeling that the ocean called her name.

#10 It’s easy to be fooled by shiny things

Tamatoa the crab creates a liar filled with shiny things to trick the fish to enter and become its food. Tamatoa himself is also a victim of the trick with shiny things when he gets distracted by Moana covered in glowing algae so that Maui can take the opportunity to grab his hook.
