Is it just me or do Disney movies have the inevitable power to teleport you to those childhood years and make your imagination go wild!
Disney’s new animation movie, Moana, will take you all the way back to centuries ago where the greatest sailors navigated the great Pacific, discovering many islands of Oceania. A time full of adventure, mystery and wonder! This film is about an adventurous teenager (voice of Auli’I Cravalho) who is inspired to leave the safety of her island on a daring and adventurous journey to save her people. Moana convinces the the almighty demigod, Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) to join her on this mission. Needless to say there will be bumps along the way!
I am honored to say that I got to see some of the behind the scenes footage this past weekend at the People En Espanol Festival!
To add even more magic to my day, I got to hear Lin-Manuel Miranda shared some motivational words regarding his success and also how composing the music in Moana inspired him in so many ways.
My amiga Lisa, of Atypical Familia, shares some really motivational quotes Lin-Manuel shared with us that day. Check it out if you want to be inspired. 😉
Most important of all, in my opinion, this movie will encourage and inspire us all to want to get to know our ancestors and the legacy of our heritage even more.
Directed by the renowned filmmakers, Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid”, “Aladdin”, “The Princess and the Frog”) and produced by Osnat Shurer, featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Operaia Foa’i. This is going to be an another classic!
Watch this brand new trailer below for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ MOANA! The film, starring Auli‘i Cravalho (voice of “Moana”) and Dwayne Johnson (voice of “Maui”), opens in theatres in 3D this Thanksgiving!
Moana sails into theaters November 23, 2016!
