Ahead of Moana 2, 7 Heartfelt Walt Disney Films To Watch

Akansha Rukhaiyar

A Bug's Life (1998) - Disney+ Hotstar

If you need a reminder that it's okay to be different from the rest, and even if you are singled out for it, your uniqueness should not be your weakness, watch Flik's journey in A Bug's Life along with Moana.

Ratatouille (2007) - Disney+ Hotstar or Prime Video

Just like Moana, Ratatouille teaches us the importance of following our dreams, while also sprinkling a bunch of surprisingly effective cooking within the plot.

Raya and The Last Dragon (2021) - Disney+ Hotstar or Prime Video

Both Raya and Moana encourage us not to say no to adventures just because it may seem daunting. Epic journeys are called epic for a reason, aren't they?

Finding Nemo (2003) - Disney+ Hotstar or Prime Video

Moana and Nemo end up trying to find their place in the world away from their parents, and both films give plenty of insight into how child-parent dynamics work.

The Incredibles (2004) - Disney+ Hotstar or Prime Video

Hiding our true selves may seem easy, but it's never the solution. Characters like Violet in The Incredibles and Moana delicately demonstrate this.

Zootopia (2016) - Disney+ Hotstar or Prime Video

Being a girl in the real or animated world is a challenge, but Moana and Judy choose to fight through it with a smile, and the occasional breakdown, of course.

Moana (2016) - Disney+ Hotstar or Prime Video

And, of course, as you prep for Moana 2, refresh your memories with Moana's adventures as she sets sail to protect her island before she travels the vast seas of Oceania.
