4th year CSE students continue the project entitled ‘Why Music is so Important in Animation?’ in order to enhance the value of music in animated movies. The main objective of this activity is to analyse the lyrics and discover the moral that songwriters wanted to transmit, why the songs are performed in a specific moment in these movies, and so on. All the songs selected have been award winners and and have been chosen for their valuable messages.
In our third instalement, we will talk about the song How Far I’ll Go which is the original song from Disney’s 2016 animated musical feature film Moana. It was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The song was performed in the film by American actress and singer Auliʻi Cravalho in her role as Moana. It was released along with the album on November 18, 2016.
The song was nominated for Best Original Song at the 89th Academy Awards and Best Original Song at the 74th Golden Globe Awards. It won the Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.
Let’s listen to what the students say about the importance of this song and the moment in which it is used in the movie.
