Moana

Can you believe Disney’s new animated film Moana release is right around the corner? November 23rd to be exact, but still, right around the corner!
To help start all the excitement, Disney has released some fun details about the film,
and the making of it. I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited for this new Disney property!
