Disney Introduces A Pacific Princess 'Moana' Come See The Trailer

A Polynesian princess has finally landed. Disney introduces Moana, a beautiful princess from the Pacific.

NZ Herald reports about it, and Disney fans are once again excited as the new trailer of the new animated movie Moana was released. The trailer clip is mostly featuring Maui, a demigod that is played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. In the clip he is attempting to impress Moana, and her pet pig with his haka-like performance.

Auli'i Cravalho plays the character voice of Moana in this new movie. The trailer sets its fun tone when Moana and her pig were unimpressed with Maui, as he asked the two "what a demigod got to do?"

Moana is a hero in her own story. Her adventures include being able to set sail on a mission in order to prove to herself that she is a master navigator while trying to fulfill an ancient quest. Maui helps her on her journey through the Pacific Isles showing the beauty of the Islands through animated film designing.

Moana will be another of Disney's milestones as they have been creating princesses from all forms of ethnicity like Elena of Avalor who is Hispanic, and Mulan who is Chinese. Who knows which ethnicity will be featured next for a princess? They've already had an Arab princess as well, Jasmine.

The film Moana has a lot of fun elements to it. There will also be a sense of appreciation to the culture that is so unique and has a beauty of its own found in the Island of the pacific. The Disney Movie website has already featured the photo for 'Moana' the movie. The Movie is set to be released on Thanksgiving this year.

'Moana' is written by Kiwi filmmaker Taika Wititi. The sound track was created by a New Zealand music group Te Vaka, with Opetiaia Foa'i as the lead composer and singer of the music.  

This film is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, whose previous work includes The Little Mermaid, The Princess and The Frog and Alladin.
