On the other hand, Moana, is a young girl who tries to help save her island, Motonui, and her people and family by using her water powers to bring back the heart of Futi, but also experiences some trouble on her journey home. Throughout their journeys, both heroes, Odysseus and Moana, demonstrate that a true hero is one who love and treasures their family and people. Throughout their trials, both Moana and Odysseus have a special mentor to help them throughout the tough parts of their journey. For instance, Moana gets the help from a friend named Maui, a demigod, who had stolen the heart of Te Fiti. In the beginning, Moana’s family, especially her father, are very strict about her going out into the ocean alone.

But Rikki probably did help the most. But Rikki has been mostly very helpful to the family because they saved him from the stream.

It works and Rikki chases Nagaina into her
The movie “Moana” by Ron Clements and John Musker shows a young girl going on a dangerous mission to save the people living in her village. Unfortunately, the fishermen of the island were not able to catch fish and the crops were not growing.

Ignoring the rules of her father, Moana decides to sail by herself across the ocean, to persuade a man named Maui, to return the heart of Te Fiti’s. Providing a small supply of food for herself, Moana finds Maui and together, they sail across the ocean to find the heart.
The ocean reflects Edna’s process of “awakening” and her increasing urge and attempt to break free from these social conventions as she finally begins to understand her individuality. Edna refuses to fulfill her wifely and motherly duties, she becomes aware of her sexuality as she has has multiple partners, and even moves out of her “house on Esplanade Street” in an attempt to be financially independent (131). All these acts, serve as attempts to escape from the eternal role as a mother and housewife. Freedom, for Edna, is the act of disengaging from obligations towards her husband and children, and the release from social order. In a sense, Edna’s death is due to her failure to balance a sense of self and freedom with the demands of life.
In the first chapters of The House of Mirth Wharton establishes various conditions that Lily desires. She is in search of wealth, social prosperity, and marriage. But Lily’s craving for independence is an added aspect that cannot go overlooked. The craving is established early on, in chapter three of the text. Lily is seen longing to, “drop out of the race and make an independent life for herself” but yet knows it would not be a fit lifestyle for her because “she hated dinginess as much as her mother had hated it, and to her last breath she meant to fight

They might be afraid to show it but they will use it and it will show how great of a person they are. Education plays a big role in how someone goes about life, and if they have integrity or not. In Chapter 3 of To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus told Scout, “ You never really understood a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” (Lee 39). Atticus showed Scout not only great empathy, but great parenting by teaching Scout something about the world. Atticus knows what it is like for people not the same as everyone else to get treated differently, so he is trying to teach Scout the right way.
Both mermaids have a due date that forces them back into the ocean if they do not find love. While Anderson’s mermaid’s failure would lead her to her ultimate death, Aquamarine’s would lead her to go back to the ocean and marry whomever her father desires. The ending greatly differs for, in Anderson’s original tale, The Little Mermaid fails to find love and sacrifices herself for the Prince. She is then required to live off her life as a spirit, doing good deeds to humans for her to regain her soul back. Similarly, Aquamarine does not find love with the lifeguard, Raymond, which causes a huge ocean storm due to her father’s rage.
He lost all his powers but got them back after realising his flaws, his ego and pride. He showed us that heroism is in stepping forward for someone else and not being selfish. He sacrificed his pathway to reach to his loved one for his kingdom, just like any army man leaves his family for his country, that is heroism. It taught us the value of loyalty and the importance of our responsibilities. Thor also taught us the value of the most important thing which is ‘hope’, we learnt another thing from this movie which is “we never realise our mistakes till we are punished and then when we realise we are able to stand again”.
