Itâ€™s always great when the gang at Screen Junkies takes on Disney films in their Honest Trailers series. Not only do we get quality comedy, but Weird Al-style parodies of classic Disney songs. This time, itâ€™s the newest Disney animated film with strong female characters, no forced romance, and a celebration of Polynesian cultureâ€¦ Lilo and Stitchâ€¦ wait noâ€¦ Moana. Narrator Jon Bailey is hilarious as usual, and since the songs are literally implanted in my head at this point, Iâ€™m sure this HT will do me no favors.
Watch as Moana goes from being a strong determined little girl to a strong determined young woman in just 90 minutes. And revel in the film that finally broke all the Disney clichesâ€¦ by kinda sorta following them, all the while being all meta and self referential about it. Weâ€™re looking at you funny chicken sidekick, and Grandma Mufasa! And check out her water powers, which are basically the same as Elsaâ€™s ice powers in Frozen. Thereâ€™s also Maui; the gigantic, tattooed, charismatic demi-godâ€¦ you know, basically just The Rock.
But who cares about trivialities, the guy from Hamilton did the soundtrack!!! So letâ€™s rock out with the part of Honest Disney Trailers everyone loves, the song parodies! The â€œUh-oh Weâ€™re Making The Rock Sing Song,â€ which I kinda think is unfair because â€œYouâ€™re Welcomeâ€ is so goddamn catchy. Then we have the â€œLet it Go-ish Songâ€ and in this context, yeah, it does sort of sound like itâ€¦ but damn you Honest Trailers, I love Moana!
Starring: Nemo, David Glowie, Shy Guys, and Wow Troy Polamalu Really Let Himself Goâ€¦ new title: Pacific Swim. Bailey ends by teaming Rapunzel, Elsa, and Moana to begin a Disney Princess Avengers squad. Well I guess they do own all the intellectual property huh. Screen Junkies has just under 6-million YouTube subscribers and release new Honest Trailers every Tuesday.
