Moana is an upcoming 2016 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy adventure film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures.
MOANA THEMED DAILY WEB PICTURE
It is the 56th Disney animated feature film. It is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, and co-directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams. The film introduces Auli'i Cravalho as Moana and features Dwayne Johnson as Maui. The film's songs were co-written by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It is scheduled to be theatrically released on November 23, 2016.
On a mystic island in Polynesia, the 16-year-old strong-willed daughter of the chief of the tribe, Moana from Motunui Island, is chosen by the ocean itself to reunite the Heart of Te Fiti. She sets sail in search of Maui, a legendary demigod and hopes to save her people.
On October 20, 2014, Disney announced that it would be releasing the film in late 2016, and hinted that it might be the November 23, 2016 spot previously announced by Disney in March 2014 for an untitled film. On November 10, 2014, Disney confirmed that it would be releasing the film on November 23, 2016.
The picture will be titled Vaiana in many countries following a trademark conflict. The picture will be titled Oceania in Italy, while the name of the protagonist will be Vaiana in lieu of Moana, presumably to avoid confusion with an Italian porn star of the same name, Moana Pozzi.
The film has been criticized for perpetuating stereotypes of Polynesians by depicting Maui as overweight. In addition, a costume made to tie in with the film was pulled by Disney from its online store following complaints about it being culturally insensitive.
The film will be accompanied by the new short film Inner Workings.
On October 25, 2016, at a press conference in Pape’ete, it was announced that, together with the dubbings normally released by Disney Character Voices International, the movie will feature, for the first time, a translation into the Tahitian language. This marks the second time Disney releases a special dubbing dedicated to the culture to which the movie is inspired: the first case was The Lion King, for which the directors travelled to South Africa to cast voice actors for a Zulu-dubbed version.
Disney India chose popular Indian music composer Bappi Lahiri to voice the character of Tamatoa in the Hindi-dubbed version of the film releasing in India.
