The ocean chose you!

13 Inspiring Moana Quotes That Will Make You Say "I Am Moana of Motunui"

Moana was an emotional journey that made us believe in ourselves and reach down deep to get in touch with ourselves. We felt all the emotions as Moana journeyed alone, over the ocean to save her island and her family.

We sang along to Maui, danced with Tamatoa, laughed at HeiHei, cried for Gramma Tala, and sought adventure with Moana.

Thankfully, we only have to wait a few more years for Moana 2 (which Disney hasn't officially sent out a press release on) but we've saw on Instagram that they're making Moana 2.

To remind you all why she's truly the most inspirational Disney character, we've rounded up some of the most wonderful Moana quotes for you to read through... will the ocean choose you?
