    Hmm maybe similar to when the future pack came out for the sims 3, I remember thinking they must have been inspired by hunger games especially with the CAS stuff..? I think they are defo influenced by current pop culture with some stuff they release. Strangerville? Wasn’t there a ton of comparisons to the tv show stranger things?

    Yes! There was, and if you look at the whole plot and compare it to stranger things. It is very similar, plus the whole plants thing is a nod in that direction.

    I heard about the cave being a rabbit hole, but it’s a secret when you can find mermadic kelp? 😌

    I really wish they hid the cave more, and it lead to an secret underwater lot. Like: Sylvan Glade, The Hermits House, Sixam, etc, but made it underwater and full of mermaids. With a structure similar to Atlantis.

    The costumes look more like ones from Tahiti to me but as there are over 1000 islands and countries in Polynesia (including Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa and Tonga I think Maxis has collected from everywhere and cartoonised them. Disney probably did the same from the same internet information and images. The larger countries are westernised to a great extent now and win gold medals at the Olympics, have music stars etc., etc.

    This can’t be a coincidence, and from what I’ve seen. No one has noticed these two things in the pack:

    15941378_1820039241570333_4168964638624543126_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&_nc_ht=scontent-lax3-1.xx&oh=d6135c0d758f3b7948762c69b3cdca63&oe=5D84D549

    And the island living girl:

    sims-4-island-living-1200x675.jpg

    Too similar, right??
    Well it gets better:

    88080f9dd3a90fc072088b67557981c3.jpg

    And that weird totem looking object in the island living trailer on the table,

    sims-island-expansion.jpg

    Case and Point! This can’t be a coincidence! Tell me what you think down below. Is this just a coincidence or is this a hint to something in the pack not discussed, such as control over the ocean by mermaids? Who knows?


    PSA: I am not saying that EA has copied the culture or anything along those lines. I am clearly stating that when I saw this pack certain things looked familiar, and I remember them faintly from Moana. I’m posting this to ring a bell in your head, along with speculating the possibility of it meaning there are possible Easter Eggs or it is just a marketing strategy.


    Been listening to songs from Moana since yesterday. Love that movie! And I love that theory of yours.

    Way to go! You were right all along. Auli'i Cravalho (Moana) does her voice in the Island Living trailer (new one)

    I got Moana-vibes from the sim in the trailer. Really look forward to having her in the game.

    I am really happy by these little references to the movie because I really enjoyed it.

    They were definitely influenced by the movie . No one said it was a negative thing anyway. So its a bit annoying how people attacked the OP.

    And them having the girl who played her sing the song, is a nod to the film *sigh*

    @Jasper7702 After seeing all the mad hate you got for this post I am so happy to see you come out on top 🙌🙌🙌 Still hoping for some marine life reincarnation or powers though :wink::lol:

    Well done op you guessed it!
  • HillyBethHillyBeth Posts: 2,038 Member
    I watch the movie a lot- I have two older nieces- and I'm constantly listening to the song 'How Far I'll Go.' The second I saw the sim walking away from the water at the beginning, I knew she was a mermaid. Then, when the official game play trailer dropped and we hear Moana speaking, I knew it had to be the same actress!

    i was going to mention that easter egg. I think all of those things in the game are just easter eggs and inspirations for the producers. When Willow Creek concept art leaked, for example, there was a lot of reference to The Princess and the Frog to that world.

    I agree very much. I made it a point to post congratulations here since I saw the attacks.

    I wish the cave led to a mermaid cove. It’s kind of disappointing, but the rest of the pack is solid so far.

    Not to spoil anything but my sim has also found some collectibles that have some serious Moana vibes too so...you were right on the money! ;)
