Moana is the hero of the story. She is a feisty teenager who has an adventurous spirit. She wants to go exploring beyond the reef of her small island, against her parents’ wishes. She has the power to tame waves, the ocean is her friend so she doesn’t need to fear the distant voyages she goes on.
Maui is a demigod who created the islands. He is huge and stubborn. HIs body is covered with tattoos that tell of his great conquests and adventures. He stole the heart of a goddess and without it, Moana’s people are doomed to failing crops and bad fishing stock until he decides to return it to her. He holds a magical fish hook that allows him to shape shift and create islands from the sea.
Tui is the popular chief of the people on Moana’s island. He hopes that one day Moana will follow in his footsteps. However he is scared that she will want to find out more about the wider world beyond the reef. He controls her and forbids her to go past the reef, which just makes her want it more.
