I first heard of Moana while at D23 Expo. Disney shared about so many awesome upcoming movies and of course I am always excited to hear about upcoming animated features. I am thrilled to share this Moana sneak peek – the first trailer with you all today.
If you have not heard about Moana, it is Walt Disney Animation Studios’ new feature film “Moana” is about an adventurous teenager who, with help from demigod Maui, sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master way finder and save her people. Disney has made great strides in recent years to share a more diverse range of heroes and heroines. I also love seeing a princess who is strong and courageous. Disney is encouraging girls to stand up and be the hero of their own story, I personally love this evolution and I cannot wait to see more about Moana as it becomes available. For now, I have watched this Moana sneak peek about 3 dozen times, and I am sure so many of our readers will be just as captivated.
Moana is the newest CG full length featured film from my favorite animation studio and I cannot wait for it to open in theaters. And the wait is almost over, on November 23, 2016 Moana opens in US theaters.
Talented newcomer and Native Hawaiian Auli’i Cravalho voices Moana; the newest Disney Princess after Disney auditioned hundreds of talented young women. Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson is the perfect fit for the voice of the demi God Maui.
Moana is directed by the incredibly talented Ron Clements and John Musker who directed The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog, just to name a few.
And with no further delay – here is the Moana Official Trailer…………..
I promise I will be sharing more as it becomes available – you can also follow Moana on social media here….
