PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT ON DISNEY'S 'MOANA' ANIMATED ADVENTURE WITH CHARACTER PHOTOS! DWAYNE JOHNSON & NICOLE SCHERZINGER LEAD THE CAST!

DISNEY'S 'MOANA' 
CHARACTERS REVEALED!
Straight from Disney today come character photos for their new animated seafaring adventure MOANA which will sail into cinemas this November. It is directed by Little Mermaid and Aladdin team Ron Clements and John Musker
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. MOANA is 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 (Auli'i Cravalho) meets the once mighty demi-god Maui (Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she's always sought: her own identity!

NICOLE SCHERZINGER STARS
While newcomer Auli‘i Cravalho lends her voice to the title character, who dreams of becoming a master wayfinder, and Dwayne Johnson to Maui — her love interest, half god, half mortal - probably the shiniest addition to the cast is one of world's most talented pop stars Nicole Scherzinger who lends her voice to Sina, Moana's mother. Playful, sharp and strong-willed, Sina appreciates Moana’s longing to be on the water, but also wants to protect her daughter from the fabled dangers beyond the reef. Temuera Morrison voices Moana’s father, Chief Tui, the gregarious and well-respected leader of the people of Motunui Island!
Moana's pets include  Pua, her loyal pet pig with puppy energy and an innocent puppy brain. Alan Tudyk is behind the voice of Heihei, a dumb rooster who accidently stows away on Moana’s canoe. Jemaine Clement provides the voice of Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab who lives in Lalotai, the realm of monsters. Rachel House voices Gramma Tala, Moana’s confidante and best friend, who shares her granddaughter’s special connection to the ocean! And then there are also The Kakamora, an intense team of crazy, coconut-armored pirates who will stop at nothing to get what they want

  2. I love how they try to make the cartoo characters resembe the actor in some way. Or is it vice versa? Lol
