MOANA is Coming on Disney in 2016
If you are in love with Hawaii, you would know how caring, soul-twitching their Ohana Family is. My life is so much connected to the Aloha islands where my true Ohana is. Where I discovered life as an amazing path with discoveries that are only up to us make.
Disney Studios follows the traditions of the islands and Hawaiian people. Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for MOANA, a sweeping, comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker – you may be already a huge fan of their “The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin.”
Here’s what Ron Clements said about their idea based on the Hawaiian culture.
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from ‘The Little Mermaid’ to ‘Aladdin’ to ‘The Princess and the Frog,’” said Clements. “Creating ‘Moana’ is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
Are you ready to embark on an adventure of a lifetime with the MOANA heroes?
