Walt Disney Animation Studios has pushed up the release date of the newest film, Moana, a CG-animated comedy about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestor’s quest, from 2018 to 2016. The film will be directed by the team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog” and “Aladdin”). They are both thrilled to pair up once again to bring Moana and her adventures, set in the beaautiful world of Oceania, to life. The story of Moana is one of her navigation skills in trying to locate a fabled island. She teams up with the demi-god, Maui, in a quest to overcome the treacherous open seas and dangerous characters to find this island. Musker says “Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself. She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
With the popularity of recent female dominated movies such as Brave, Tangled and FROZEN, Moana is set to be another blockbuster for Disney.
Stay tuned for more information as the movie release date nears.
