    MOANA, Disney's newest princess. A strong willed, independent woman, out on adventure. Or is she? There's a lot about Moana that doesn't quite add up. She controls the Sea. Visits the Land of Monsters. She isn't just some typical Polynesian adventurer, no. Moana is more than what she seems!

    Okay, a couple things:
    It talks several times in the movie about how Moana and her father are very much alike, even by Ceana and Tala. If Ceana knew that Maui was Moana’s father, why would she say that she’s like her current husband? How could Maui even have a kid if he was on an island for 1000 years, because I don’t think even people in Polynesian myths live to be over 1000. I guess it could happen before he got on the island, but even that wouldn’t make sense because that would make Ceana over 1000. Another thing, why would Tala help Moana out if it’s not even really her granddaughter? Granted, she could’ve not known that but still. They probably didn’t eat Pua because he’s still a piglet for one, and for two is Moana’s pet, so they wouldn’t want to upset the chief by cooking his daughters pig. If they didn’t eat Pua because it was Moana’s brother, then the entire village, including her father, would probably realize that this is no ordinary girl and it’s probably a better idea to send her out to the ocean, what she’s the literal goddess of
    Not trying to upset anyone, I really like this theory, but a lot of stuff doesn’t really add up.

    I cringed every time Matpat pronouned all the words and names. And Matpat if your talking about us as a collective it's called Islanders and Moari's not Polynesians. 👍
    Maui never died he was found in a basket by one of the gods and got turned into a demigod, Also Maui's mum had like 6 other sons after she threw Maui into the water she got rid of Maui because she had an affair with one of the men in her village while her husband was away on a hunting trip and didn't want anyone to find out that she did and just told her husband the baby died when he came back from the trip

    Another thing to consider, it’s kinda odd for Sina to live as Tui’s wife if she had Moana with Maui, and for Grandmother Tala to be Tui’s mother as a goddess herself. So maybe, Tala is also Maui’s mother, making Tui and Maui brothers, and Moana was disguised as Tui’s daughter when she was born.

    Mat pat, I'm okay with the dead Moana theory because it MAKES sense to me more than her being the daughter of Maui, Maui is over 1000 years old and Cena and tala age normally, Maui doesn't so Cena wasn't born until after he was in exile. If Moana became a demi-god she would have had to die. So if she did die during the first attempt to go beyond the reef the gods could have turned her into a demi-god and returned her back into the water, When she came back to her senses she realized she was underwater and started to panic( demi-gods can drown otherwise maui wouldent have held his breath while entering the realm of monsters) and she had a bruise as the result of becoming a demi-god.
    This theory makes a lot more sense to me I hope you see this because I would like to hear the other theory of her being dead from you. This is just my take on the dead Moana theory please tell me what you think of it.
    Love yah keep up the work
