Don’t let those cute, little faces fool you — the Kakamora are fierce fighters. Banded together in a Kakamora army, they are quite a worthy opponent. The Moana movie is an adventurous tale for the whole family. There are some intense parts, but with villains this cute, even your little ones can enjoy the film.
