Special Features:

Theatrical Short Film: "Inner Workings" – With introduction by the filmmakers, is the story of the internal struggle between a man's pragmatic, logical side and his free-spirited, adventurous half. Created by a small team at Walt Disney Animation Studios in a unique, fast-paced style that blends CG and traditional hand-drawn animation, the short explores the importance of finding balance in daily life.

Maui Mini-Movie: "Gone Fishing" – When Maui decides it's time to take charge of the ocean and catch his next meal, Moana must show him the error of his ways … with a little help from her friends!

Voice of the Islands – An in-depth look at how Pacific Island people and cultures inspired the filmmakers to create the story of "Moana."

Things You Didn't Know About …
Meet the stars of "Moana" in this dynamic Q&A featuring Dwayne Johnson, newcomer Auli'i Cravalho, and famed animation directors Ron and John.
Meet the musical team behind "Moana" in this fascinating Q&A featuring Opetaia Foa'i, Mark Mancina and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Island Fashion – Find out how costume designer Neysa Bové took on the unique challenge of creating costumes using materials and techniques native to the islands of Oceania.

They Know the Way: Making the Music of "Moana" – Musicians Opetaia Foa'I, Marc Mancina and Lin-Manuel Miranda take us on a personal journey through their involvement in the movie and how it changed their lives.

Fishing for Easter Eggs – Dive deep into the ocean and fish for the Easter Eggs hidden by the animators at Walt Disney Animation Studios.

The Elements of … – This series of four mini-docs explores the technical achievements behind some of the ground-breaking effects used in the film.
Mini Maui – Meet "Mini Maui," Maui's tattoo sidekick. Animated by legendary hand-drawn animator Eric Goldberg, we explore how the 2D world collides with CG animation to bring the demigod's tattoos to life.
Water – In the movie, the ocean is a character. This piece explores how the water is given a personality, along with the technical feats of creating a believable ocean landscape farther than the eye can see.
Lava – Te Kā is a creature made of lava, smoke and fire. This piece dives into the challenges of making an animated creature of massive scale brought to fiery life by character, technical and effects animators.
Hair – One of the greatest technical achievements of the film was the animation of the beautiful, curly hair on Moana and Maui. Take a look at the hair-raising detail that goes into animating each strand, adding performance to the movie that has never been seen before.

Re: Moana - 3/7/17

Sounds pretty meaty for Disney extras. But the steelbook price I never saw before at BB. It may go down before release, but that's a price point I never saw from them...

Re: Moana - 3/7/17

I bet Disney will watch the 3D sales figures of this one VERY closely, given how the future of 3D displays is in jeopardy. This of course will be a day-one purchase for me.

Re: Moana - 3/7/17

Yeah, same as Doctor Strange and just about all steelbooks. If you wait until release day, it'll be available both in-store and shipping.

DS was no problem for me, but this, now down to a still unreasonable $32.99, is ridiculous. I'll try Tuesday. Maybe make it to store in time...

Re: Moana - 3/7/17

I just get up in the morning and order it online for in-store pickup. Never a need to go to the store anymore when it first opens.

Re: Moana - 3/7/17

What? Why the hell is that dirty? That's why here's an in-store pickup option.

Re: Moana - 3/7/17

Now that the price dropped, I wonder if I'm going to get refunded the difference since I used that Visa Checkout deal...

Re: Moana - 3/7/17

Well that was pretty easy. Did a quick online chat and they refunded me $5, which brings my order to $25.21 after tax for the 3D steelbook

Sadly missed this in theater, but I chose it as a DMC fulfillment and it shipped today. Excited to finally check it out!

Still not available on site. Must be ducking in and out for some strange reason. This one is frustrating me...

Re: Moana - 3/7/17

Mine should be delivered tomorrow. I just hope we can watch it before we leave for vacation.

I almost forgot to cancel my Target order. Thankfully they emailed me today and said it had a new release date, which is Tuesday . For once their slow shipping worked in my favor.
