Moana hits theaters November 23rd and people are really excited about this movie because it’s going to feature the FIRST Polynesian princess BUT people are NOT loving Disney for this Moana Halloween costume.
A costume of Maui, a Polynesian demigod which is voiced by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in the movie went on sale last weekend online and at DisneyStore.com. It’s a brown bodysuit with tattoos. The description says, “Your little one will set off on adventures in this Maui costume featuring the demigod’s signature tattoos, rope necklace, and island-style skirt plus, padded arms and legs for mighty stature!”
A lot of people are saying this is very offensive, inappropriate and are accusing Disney of cultural appropriation.
What do you think?
