Nabbing a 2016 release date this year, ‘Moana’ will mark the first time a character from the Pacific Islands will lead a Disney project, set to be brought to life by the creatives behind ‘Aladdin’, the aforementioned ‘Princess’ and ‘The Little Mermaid.‘
Originally described as a “mythic adventure set around 2000 years ago and across a series of islands in the South Pacific.” The film will follow the journey of a spirited teenager named Moana as she sails the Pacific Ocean to complete her “ancestor’s quest.”
