Moana Waialiki (voiced by Auli’i Cravalho) and demigod Maui (voiced by Dwayne Johnson) in Moana
Not gonna lie, I get giddy like a schoolgirl every time a new Disney princess is unveiled, and in the case of Moana, my anticipation level is off the charts. While I love Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, Snow White, Tiana, Ariel, Belle and Cinderella, I always longed for a princess who looked more like me, and she’s finally set to arrive in the new Disney film that hits theaters Nov. 23.
In the animated adventure, teenager Moana Waialiki (voiced by Auli’i Cravalho) sets out on a mission to save her people and along the way meets demigod Maui (voiced by Dwayne Johnson). Together they sail across the ocean, encounter monsters and singing a song or two – of course.
Tony Award Winner and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda contributes to Moana’s soundtrack, and Johnson has just shared one of the tunes, “You’re Welcome, on his Instagram. Check out the clip below and get just as excited as I am for the film’s release!
Moana is in theaters Nov. 23.
