On August 14 Dwayne Johnson (“San Andreas,” “Furious 7,” HBO’s “Ballers”), who lends his voice in the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana as the mighty demi-god Maui, hit the stage at the D23 EXPO 2015 to give us a bit of a peek at what’s to come.
Dazzling early test footage, newly revealed plans for the film’s inspired music and the team behind it was shared by renowned directions John Musker and Ron Clements (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin”) and Osnat Shurer (Oscar nominated Pixar shorts “One Man Band,” “Boundin'”). The extraordinary and varied talents of Tony-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (Broadway’s new hit “Hamilton,” Tony-winning “In the Heights”), Grammy winning composer Mark Mancina (“Tarzan” and “The Lion King”) and Opetaia Foa’i (founder and lead singer of the world music award winning band Te Vaka) have blended together to help tell the tale of a spirited teenager who sets out to prove herself a master wayfinder. To cap off the presentation Foa’i gave a stunning performance illustrating the magic of the movie’s music.
The much anticipated “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on November 23, 2016!
