Way of the Ray (Sequence Intro)

No matter the culture, teenagers are full of angst. Here is no exception. Moana, has just run out from a tribal ceremony being held in her honor. She sheds the cumbersome ceremonial headdress and looks longingly out at the ocean. Feeling trapped by her father's expectations for her.



































 Another board artist took it from here. The scene continues with Moana finding a manta ray trapped in the tide pools and helps it to escape back to the sea.

Moana - Reuniting With Dad Pt.3 (Deleted Sequence) 2015

In this last section, Moana commandeers her canoe and sails off toward danger, determined to complete her mission to save her people and their island.

(I originally included a close up of Moana looking lovingly at her dad, for perhaps the last time, as she sails away.  For whatever reason, it was cut out of this version. I still miss it.)
