After the massive success of Frozen and Zootopia, Walt Disney Animation Studios is seeking to make it a three-peat with it’s latest feature. Utilizing Hawaiian culture as the backdrop, the House of Mouse is shaping up to become a powerhouse in developing stories with an intense cultural flair. And with Moana, they will more than likely succeed:
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 once-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 hits theaters November 23, 2016.
