Disney Moana Movie In Theaters 2016
Another fabulous animated Disney movie, you say? I’m so excited to say YES! It’s no wonder that Disney has been busy lately. Another amazing CG-animated adventure is about to set sail with Disney’s Moana, set to embark on 2016! Walt Disney Animation Studios just released TODAY the news about this brand new comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. From the amazing folks that brought you the “Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” and “The Princess and the Frog,” I think that you will definitely be in good hands.
In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “The Princess and the Frog,” “Aladdin”).
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from ‘The Little Mermaid’ to ‘Aladdin’ to ‘The Princess and the Frog,’” said Clements. “Creating ‘Moana’ is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
That’s all of the details I have at the moment, but be sure to stay tuned for the latest and greatest from the Walt Disney Animation Team as the story unfolds. Who’s excited? Join the conversation right now with hashtag #Moana to get the buzz on the latest movie from Disney!
