The Art of Moana is the latest title in our exceptional series showcasing artwork from the creation of Walt Disney Animations' latest releases. Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world ventured across the Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped-and no one today knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios, Moana is a CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors' unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui and together they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed adventure, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds. The stunning artwork in this behind-the-scenes book includes character designs, storyboards, colorscripts, and much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful I loved the movie and have seen it 3 times in the cinema! After having seen it for the first time, I knew I had to get the art book. This book shows in detail the concept art and ideas behind the movie and it also shows how much research and thought the makers of the movie have put into the production of it. The art book made me appreciate the movie even more. An overall treat for the eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Comprehensive Love this art book to bits, there is a bountiful and balanced amount of art and information that I've never found in any other of my current selection of art books, it's by far the greatest source material I have for reference and just leisurely browsing when I feel like looking at breath taking digital landscape paintings and character explorations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool This book has so much concept art for characters and places in the film. It's interesting to see how things started off compared to the final designs. There's so much colour on every page but also a lot of pencil sketches. If you loved the movie you should definitely buy this book.
