There was a blinding flash, and Maui was struck from the sky. Men began to covet her heart, wanting its life-giving power for themselves. Reaching a row of large rocks, he became a bug and squeezed between them. Moana takes it and climbs up the mountain, depositing it on the pile of stones. From the ocean sprang the island goddess Te Fiti. The film is based on stories from Polynesian mythology.
Sailing back home, Moana sees that all the plants and fish have returned to Motunui. And in the center was her heart, a stone with a spiral shape on one side, giving out the force of life. Maui, the hook and the heart were lost at sea. She lay on her side, with her curves becoming mountains and valleys. Days later, they pull the canoes out of the cavern and put them in the water.
She teaches others the skills of sailing and way-finding, passing along what Maui taught her. A glowing manta ray swims past her, and a hawk screeches and dives toward her. Gramma Tala voice: Rachel House is telling a story to a group of children, with an animated tapa cloth illustrating her words. She jumps out of the canoe and runs to the shore, where Sina and Tui are waiting to hug her. Maui ran to the edge of the island, jumped off a cliff and changed into a hawk in midair, then flew back to his boat.
Without her heart, the island of Te Fiti began to crumble. When he reached the heart, he turned back into a man, and he used his large fishing hook to pry out the heart. He landed on the island and changed again into a lizard to make his way through the forest. The ocean recedes to reveal a pink shell. .
Maui grabbed his hook and jumped at Te Ka. A boat carrying the demigod Maui voice: Dwayne Johnson sailed toward the island, and he jumped off and magically transformed into a hawk. He tried to escape, but a lava monster named Te Ka, who also wanted the heart, arose from the sea into a volcano and started to erupt. . . .
