If you are ready to go home I will be with you I need to talk about this scene because it's so different from the typical way pep talks go Moana has just suffered a tremendous defeat and been abandoned by Maui her demi-god ally She's understandably upset- the heart of Te Fiti has to be restored or decay will consume her island And yet she's just one teenage girl on a damaged canoe- how is she supposed to face down Te Ka actual vengeful Lava monster? Her fairy-gedmether grandmother's spirit doesn't come in with a magical fix insist her doubts are baseless andor bluster that she should just get on with the impossible She comforts her and tells her it was too big a task to expect of her all true! and then tells her it's okay to give up that she will be there with unconditional support to help her go home no guilt or shame THIS NEVER HAPPENS IN STORIES And it should Encouragement is so often a lot like bullying in narratives even towards characters that are children I know you have it in you even though you were just soundly beaten! Now get back out there even though you're miserable! Instead Gramma waits until Moana herself realizes that she's not ready to give up through self reflection She wasn't there to insist that Moana suck it up but simply to remind her that come what may she knows the way That is awesome Moana Meme
