Everything You Need To Know About the Next Disney Princess
The upcoming Disney princess film Moana is back in the news after its creators teased the movie at the Cannes Film Festival, revealing some massive details. Find out why we can't wait to set our eyes on the new film.
Because, of course, we're excited about Disney's first Polynesian princess. She's the 16-year-old daughter of a chief who sets off to explore the Pacific sea with her pig and rooster sidekick, eventually befriending the hero Maui. No official pics of her face yet, but we're in love with the fan art!
PLUS Dwayne Johnson (AKA The Rock) will voice the muscular demigod Maui. It's kind of a perfect match.
We're really hoping Disney takes the opportunity to cast someone brand new in the title role of Moana. We're obsessed with an audition tape by Makamae Auwae and are rooting for her all the way.
There are some rumors that Fifth Harmony's Dinah Jane is in the running to play Moana, too. We wouldn't be mad at that!
Best of all, Moana will be a musical, and the creators say the opening number will remind us all of "Circle Of Life" from The Lion King. No matter who you are, that's something to look forward to.
Moana is set to release November 23, 2016, and we'll be counting down every day until then! Let us know what you think in the comments and at SweetyHigh.com.
