    Its not surprising moana got more screentime. Its titled moana anyway. If it was supposedly equal then the title should be moana and maui. Id be more shocked if maui have more screentime lol

    Ack those are so adorable!! :D I loved the movie (saw it last Friday) and instantly wanted more Moana merch.:p Which I suppose is what Disney wants, lol. Anyways. Elsa is still #1 in my mind, but Moana bumped Ariel out of my #2 spot.:)

    Thank you disneychick23 and timeerkat !

    Glad to hear it is not "The Maui Movie (featuring Moana)." I was so afraid of that. It still sounds like that's a LOT of Maui in the movie for my taste (nothing agsinst him, just indifferent to him and really excited about Moana's possibilities... I really wanted this movie to be about her) but it sounds like it's not what I feared from the trailers I've seen (which are all Maui, basically). Thanks for soothing my worries, now I can anticipate watching this with calmer mind :)

    I'll chime in and say it's definitely not Maui's movie. It's very clearly Moana's.:) Maui is in a lot of it, but I feel like he always plays the secondary character role pretty well. I think they just put so much Maui in the trailers because of who voices him, to be honest. The movie is DEFINITELY about Moana, and her‚Äč journey, not Maui's. He doesn't even show up right away. Have fun whenever you see the movie!:)

    I feel you're anti-Maui at all, you'd definitely be upset from the opening, because it actually starts with him, so in a way you might feel like it's his movie. I like that the movie twists and turns like that though. It was 10/10 for me.

    Quasimodo , thanks for that info.

    In that case, what I'm hoping for now is that it isn't a plotline like I assume from the trailers (where Maui is rude to Moana and she has to spend more than the halfway point of the movie trying to get him to respect/work with her), like one of the big "rewards" at the end of the movie for Moana is that this large guy finally respects her.

    In the trailers I see her having to manipulate him to get him to do what she needs and I find that disempowering, it makes me worry about that idea from a lot of other movies, that females can't lead by default, and the larger male is always really in direct power and dismissive - and if you as a female need to get something done, you need to manipulate the large male into doing so because you're not respected by default - you could only earn his respect by strenuous-almost-killing-yourself-heroism, and that will only come maybe near the last 10% of the movie.

    BUT, if that is only for a short period of time and Moana is the natural leader and he is naturally secondary/helping her (e.g., like he is Genie and she is Aladdin) rather than vice versa or power struggle the whole time, then that's totally cool. Like, I don't think Genie took up too much of Aladdin's movie at all, and he (Genie) appeared in the beginning of it as well.

    ANYWAY! On a merchandise topic:

    I got the classic Moana doll and she is beautiful! Love all her detail. Classic Elena (got her too) is beautiful too, I'm really liking the detail they are putting into the classic dolls now, much better than they're doing for many of the older movie classic dolls (hopefully to be corrected to match in coming years).

    I am only disappointed in Moana's legs which are PVC click legs and don't click much. She also has holes in the bottom of her feet - bad combo. I REALLY wish that she had been given articulated knees because she badly needs them. She does not wear shoes and cannot wear any other doll's shoes (including ken/boy dolls) and without articulation she can only sit with her feet soles directly facing you, which looks terrible despite the rest of her having such great detail. So her flat soles with big holes in them is really in-your-face. I'm thinking maybe I can do a "sandy feet" on her similar to her LE doll to play this down.

    I wonder if her LE doll has articulated knees?

    I want to end on a positive note: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this doll's hair! And the layers of her skirt!

    I'm not good with guessing exactly how far it is into a movie when I watch it in a theater, so I don't know exactly how far along it is when Maui finally respects her. That being said, there are NUMEROUS times he disses her before respecting her. He does NOT respect her at first, but he changes throughout the movie.

    And about the holes in the bottom of classic Moana's feet-I thought maybe they weren't supposed to be there, to be honest, and it was just my doll.:p Guess not. Oh well. I'd love to see your sandy-feet Moana if you do that:)

    Elphaba, I will say ONE thing about your expectations, but I'm going to lead it by saying there's a potential SPOILER SPOILER below....


    Im probably being dramatic, but only read on if you want to read a tiny spoiler. Sorry in advance to anyone who reads this by mistake!



    (Moana ends up needing to help Maui a lot more than he helps her. She's the hero and he's the ... something different from what you're expecting with his being a demigod and all)

    Thanks Quasimodo. That's intriguing. And I appreciate that you're so careful about potential spoilers too.

    I have a feeling I have my anxieties all worked up for nothing (I don't even know why I'm so anxious) and I'm going to love this movie just like you. :)

    Moana is the real hero in my opinion. She was the one who does the thinking more than maui. shes very resourceful and very witty. I was already impressed with her after she retrieved hei hei from those coconuts without maui's help at all. Mqui was ready to give up but not moana. Her persistence and determination really paved way for the success of her mission. And I dont understand why they call maui a demigod when hes technically not. A demigod means an offspring of a human and a God which maui is not.

    Elphaba, I missed your concern with the le dolls knees. Don't worry, she has the ones you want (the visible joint rather than the clicking rubber). I'm not sure if you've figured that out yet.

    It's Bittys I think. I just got the Moana one over black Friday when they were a few dollars off. Seeing Maui, I may have to get him as well. The Moana one is even cuter in person.

    Finally saw Moana and was pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure why, i was crazy excited and then the movie came out and then the trailers weren't impressing me, and I lost the hype so I think I was afraid to see it because I'd be disappointed but it was really good!

    Bought the classic doll after seeing the movie. So in love with the soundtrack!

    The tuiga doesn't muss her hair at all which was a relief. I'd just hold her hair with one hand while you pull it off. It also stays really well on her head!

    Has anyone here taken the classic or singing Moana out of the box and used a stand with her? I bought the singing doll and wanted to make the "designer" style and tried her in one of the cases I bought, but she doesn't fit. It was one for two females, so neither of the stands went around the waist. Does anyone know if the "male" version of the stand would work for her, if so, are there any solo designer dolls that use that style? If not, any ideas? Thanks!

    Honestly, you probably don't need a stand with her, even in a box. She would probably fit on the "male" version. I've had her on my shelf for a month without a stand without a problem. You could try one of the stands that she straddles/sits on? One of my Mulan dolls came with that stand. Might work better for her?

    I use an Mc2 doll stand for classic Moana. It's not very bottom-heavy but it is flexible and fits her waist, so it helps her stand a bit better.
