“I've been staring at the edge of the water. 'Long as I can remember, never really knowing why.” If you will have that song stuck in your head for the next three days, fear not! Your knowledge will likely help you ace this quiz and that's a good thing. We all know our personal worth comes from how much we know. Or even more so, but how much we let others know we know.
Now if you are asking yourself, “what song?” right now, then why are you even here? There may be spoilers, so if you haven’t watched Moana, then watch it before taking the quiz! You won’t regret it. It didn’t make $650 million at the box office for nothing. It's a wonderful movie. Those who fell in love with Moana, Maui, Pua, and Gramma Tala can vouch for that. But can you? Do you know every lyric to every song? Every name of every island? Do you eat, sleep, drink, and breathe the movie? Do you or a loved one have Moana slippers or a coffee mug? They dream of exploring the sea? Know what I’m talking about?
Hopefully you do, because it’ll take quite a bit of Moana knowledge to score well on this Moana quiz. Think you have what it takes, then let’s get started!
As a child, Eloise enjoyed learning everything she could about many subjects, though in those days the best resource was her grandma’s old stack of encyclopedias. Today, Eloise still likes to know a bit about everything, and when she’s not researching information for her Facty.com posts or flexing her history degree, she’s going through the quizzes of other authors on the site - because this is where the facts are found! Visitors to our site turn to Eloise’s fun and factual articles to learn about all kinds of things, from do-it-yourself ideas to the wider world. Those who prefer to get their facts in article format can find Eloise all across the web, as well. Not only is it great to learn from her interesting posts, but most people want to become friends with Eloise after they read her stuff - she’s just so good at explaining things!
Dwayne Johnson is very adapted to doing live-action films. But as far as animated films go, he hasn’t done as many as you’d think. In fact, he thinks acting in animated films is one of the hardest acting jobs in the world! He claims that voice-acting is the most difficult career in acting, and is personally annoyed by celebrities being cast in animated films despite their bad delivery in voicing their characters. Whenever he was told that he would play Maui in the film, he was a little scared. He loved the directors of the movie, like Aladdin and The Little Mermaid were family favorites with Aladdin being one of The Rock’s favorite Disney movies of all time. Throughout the recording, he would often ask other actors and cast members if he was doing a good job. When he watched it, he asked other voice actors if he did a good job and portrayed the character well.
He was chosen because of his background that would allow him to play a big, tough character. But also, because his mother was Samoan, the inspiration for the culture of the film. It was believed that having people that understand that culture would do a lot of good for the movie.
Another interesting thing about Maui is that every tattoo on his body was hand-drawn. It wasn’t some computer-generated magic. But like most tattoos, they were drawn by a real artist with his own hands. Speaking of those tattoos (on Maui and Tui), many of them were inspired by The Rock’s own grandfather! Much like Maui himself was inspired by! What a fun, yet self-absorbed Grandpa!
