I love finding Disney news in my inbox and I love sharing it with all of you!
It’s been a while since I first shared news about Disney’s Moana. At that time, there was only a tiny bit of information available about the movie.
Of course, everyone wants to know about the title character: Who’s playing Moana in Disney’s Moana?
Now I have an answer!
Auli’i Cravalho will play Moana! A native Hawaiian, the 14 year old joins Dwayne Johnson in the big-screen adventure about a spirited, fearless teen who sets out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder.
Check out this video to find out more information on casting the movie and how Disney found the perfect young woman for the role:

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania.
But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one today knows why.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest.
During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.
Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
