Here are the answers to our Moana treasure hunt:

Question 1 – When Moana and Maui are in Tamatoa’s lair, what piece of Disney treasure can be seen on Tamatoa’s back (before Tamatoa realizes they are there)?

Answer – Aladdin’s Lamp (it sits right atop Tamatoa, before he rises from his slumber).

Question 2 – At one point in the film, Maui shapeshifts into a series of animals while trying to regain his mojo. One of these animals is a distinct Disney character. Who is it?

Answer – Sven – the amusing reindeer from Disney’s Frozen.

Question 3 – The Kakamora are those menacing (yet adorable) painted coconut characters who attack Moana and Maui out on the ocean. One of them is painted to resemble a fan-favorite Disney character. Who is it?

Answer – Baymax. Do you see him? He fits right in with his black and white color scheme.

Question 4 – When Maui is proudly crooning his self-admiring anthem “You’re Welcome” we see a series of background animation sequences. In one of those sequences, a familiar ocean-dwelling friend makes a very brief cameo. Who is it?

Answer – Flounder. He shows up at the very end of a sequence of fish swimming. Look for him to be swimming upward.

Did you find all of these Easter Eggs while watching the film? I only noticed two myself (Sven and Baymax).
