Deciding between Moana and Mulan for the #1 slot was a tough choice, but we ultimately went with Moana. Why, you ask? Moana is easily the best young female role model of pretty much any Disney movie, ever. Moana is no damsel in distress, waiting around to be saved by a man, Prince Charming or not. The beautiful young girl can save her people, and her island, all on her own, thank you very much.
