My girls and I are so excited to find out that Disney’s #Moana Finds Her Voice in native Hawaiian newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, 14 years old! Seriously, look at her pictures below! She is looks just like Moana herself!
Disney’s #Moana Finds Her Voice
This is definitely any young girls dream, but Auli’i Cravalho, who is just a sophomore in high school fit exactly what Disney was looking for! So, Native Hawaiian newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, 14, joins Dwayne Johnson in the big-screen adventure about a spirited and fearless teenager named Moana (voice of Cravalho) who, with help from demi-god Maui (voice of Johnson), sets out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder.
Many talented young people from across the Pacific Islands were so excited to try out, but casting director could not forget the audition that Carvalho did with her cappella group! I could just imagine how amazing she must sound, especially when it’s unforgettable! I love how Disney always knows exactly what they are looking and never veer against their visions!
“Moana is a vibrant, tenacious 16-year-old growing up on an island where voyaging is forbidden,” added director Ron Clements. “But Moana has been drawn to the ocean since she can remember and is desperate to find out what’s beyond the confines of her island.”
“Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
ABOUT THE MOVIE
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one today knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
