Disney is taking CG animation to the high seas in 2016 with MOANA! The finer details of the film are still under wraps, but the story will follow an adventurous Polynesian teen as she searches for a mythical island!
With the news comes the first bit of concept art and an official description!
Set in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, the story follows Moana, a born navigator, who 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.
The film will be directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, who also brought ALADDIN, THE LITTLE MERMAID, and THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG to life.
