Walt Disney Animation Studios' Moana, the sweeping story of a spirited teenager who sets sail on a daring adventure to save her people, starring newcomer Auli'i Cravalho as the voice of brave and tenacious Moana and Dwayne Johnson (HBO's Ballers, Central Intelligence) as the larger-than-life demigod Maui, has dazzled both critics and audiences.
Moana stars Auli'i Cravalho as the voice of Moana, Dwayne Johnson as the voice of Maui, Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, Once Were Warriors, Six Days, Seven Nights) as Moana's no-nonsense father, Chief Tui; Rachel House (Whale Rider, Hunt for Wilderpeople, Eagle vs Shark, Boy, White Lies) as Moana's trusted Gramma Tala; and Nicole Scherzinger (Grammy®-nominated singer, West End's Cats) as Moana's playful and strong-willed mother, Sina; Jemaine Clement (The BFG, Despicable Me, Rio, Rio 2, What We Do in the Shadows, Flight of the Conchords) voices Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab; and Alan Tudyk (Zootopia, Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6) lends his voice to stowaway rooster Heihei.
According to directors Ron Clements and John Musker, the story of Moana was inspired by the great explorers who masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. "Voyaging is a real source of pride for many Pacific Islanders, a part of their identity", says Clements. Many experts believe that about 3,000 years ago, those deep-sea exploratory voyages halted for about a millennium before resuming.
This rebirth of exploration sparked the filmmakers' imaginations, and the heroine at the heart of the story. "The idea of a teenage girl who dreamed of becoming a navigator-considering the abilities of her ancestors-was so appealing", explains Musker. Moana's quest to become a wayfinder also serves as a journey of self-discovery, empowering her to find her own identity - a beautiful and powerful message for audiences of all ages and genders.
Moana arrives on 4K UHD for the first time on 15th March 2021.
