With an award winning team, Grammy®-winning composer Mark Mancina (“Speed”, “Tarzan”, “The Lion King”) and Opetaia Foa’i (founder and lead singer of the world music award-winning band Te Vaka), along with an ensemble (Dwayne Johnson who voices the mighty demi-god Maui) that is already blowing us away, Disney's MOANA has given us something to look forward to for 2016.
MOANA introduces a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. She meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
