What do you think about the Disney movie “Moana” and movies promoting false gods.

Inspired by the Beauty and the Beast discussion I want to see what folks think of another recent Disney movie called Moana. I watched the first half of it with my wife and my daughter and let me say it is incredible. It's been a long time since I watched a animated Disney kids movie(the last one might have been Finding Nemo more than a decade ago). It is exactly like I remember disney movies, the music, the charming characters, the visuals.

Well in this movie there is a character brilliantly voiced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson named Maui who is a god(or as they say in the movie "demigod") and he has this super catchy song "Your Welcome"(search it on youtube if you dare) and it's super catchy, in fact I sang it in my head for the last hour while I was exercising. The problem is the song is basically him explaining how he created the wind and the waves and the trees and gave people fire and the sun and stuff like that. Basically he is saying he is the creator.

Question is, do I let my kid see the rest of the movie? Do you let your kids see movies like this? What kind of conversations do you have, what are your concerns about it? Should we be concerned? I don't remember any Disney movies with false gods when I was a kid, except maybe Hercules but I didn't really watch that one.
