Though Moana may not have been my favorite Disney Animation film of the past few years (don’t get me wrong, I still loved it), the recent digital and Blu Ray release definitely has some of the most robust bonus features available for a Disney film.
Whether you’re looking for behind the scenes footage of the filmmaking process, new short content or commentary, there is something for everyone in the Moana bonus features.
As someone who loves to see how much work really goes into these films, I appreciated the features which focus on things like how the character’s hair is animated or how they brought the ocean to life and made it its own character.
Disney has always been an industry leader in animation techniques and are not just an entertainment company but a technology company as well. This goes back to Walt’s creation of the Multiplane Camera which added layers of art to the original Snow White animated feature.
The features on Moana show just how sophisticated the animation process has become and how proprietary software has allowed for breakthroughs in visuals.
Some of the other features include a new short film featuring Maui and Moana entitled Gone Fishing and the short that debuted before the film, Inner Workings.
Whether you’re a fan of feature or a fan of animation and filmmaking in general, Moana is a must-have for your collection.
Moana is available in both digital and Blu Ray now!
