There is a lot of buzz building around the upcoming release of the new Disney movie Moana .Walt Disney Animation Studios has perfect timing for the release of Moana, right before Thanksgiving! As Thanksgiving is the precursor to the busy Christmas Season, I love taking that small breather before diving into shopping.
New Disney Movie Moana Featurette
Disney recently released a brand new MOANA featurette. See a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes with “The Way to Moana.” Hear commentary from filmmakers, voice talent, songwriters, and key advisors from the Pacific Islands. You will also get to see the research and collaboration that went into the film to ensure the story celebrates the Pacific Island cultures that so deeply inspired it.
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
Moana is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”). It is produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”). It features music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i.
“Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
