Cape Town – Disney's new princess, Moana splashes onto the big screen today. With heavyweights like The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) and Lin Manuel it's no surprise it got a 5 star rating. 

There's also a Christmas movie, a local slapstick comedy and Kate Beckinsale returns to fight vampires.

Here are the 4 new films releasing in South Africa today:

Movie: Moana

Our rating: 5/5

Short review: Filled with magical characters, big musical numbers, and what I think are some of the best visuals Disney has produced, Moana really is an adventure everyone needs to see!

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: With a little less spunk than its predecessors, Underworld: Blood Wars is still pretty much what you expect from the franchise, in all its leathery goodness.
