Despite a few controversies, Moana still emerged as a gigantic success in the box office and critics alike. It also became another favorite among loyal Disney fans worldwide. Nevertheless, despite the film’s success, there’s a better version of it on the way in the form of a Moana sing-along movie.
Moviegoers can now belt out memorable songs like Maui’s You’re Welcome and Moana’s How Far I’ll Go when the sing-along movie hits select theaters on January 27. As per the press release relayed by /Film, the Moana sing-along film will screen over 2,000 theaters in the USA.
Before its January 27 wide release, an exclusive screening of the film happens at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre. Fans who already saw the film will see the same feature, with lyrics appearing during the musical numbers the only different feature.
Disney’s reputation for musical elements in their movies is no longer new. Most notably making this criterion are Disney princess films. Hence, even though Moana is technically the chief’s daughter in the film, she’s still shaping up as an addition to the Princess lineup.
One of the most recent films to get the sing-along treatment is 2013’s Frozen. The film featured songs like Let It Go, For the First Time in Forever, and Do You Wanna Build a Snowman that has since been part of pop culture references.

Moviegoers who’ll be watching Moana for the first time through the sing-along should know a few things. One, majority of the songs in the film are upbeat. Two, some of these songs are part of the most emotional scenes in the film.
First of these emotional songs is We Know the Way. In the scene, Moana finds out the secret of her ancestors long kept from her. Meanwhile, another song happens when Moana is almost discouraged to go on her mission. Finally, a song that appears at the climax has been known to bring majority of the audience to tears.
