Disney’s latest animated feature Moana was recently released on DVD, Blu-Ray, Digital Download, and wherever else you watch movies at home (and if you haven't seen it, get on that right away). Though this film was five years in the making, it’s impossible to ignore the current political and cultural climate as this film enters the pop culture zeitgeist. There have been several articles devoted to Moana as a feminist heroine who has a more realistic body and an adventure plot that doesn’t center around romance; however, when we live in a world where a man who has admitted to sexual assault is the President of the United States, Moana’s commentary on rape culture should not be ignored.
