With just a few months to go until Moana finally opens in theaters, Walt Disney Animation Studios has officially announced that Jemaine Clement, Nicole Scherzinger, Temuera Morrison, Rachel House and Alan Tudyk will be joining newcomer Auli‘i Cravalho (Moana) and Dwayne Johnson (Maui) in the upcoming animated movie, which is being directed by Rob Clements and John Musker.
The studio has also released detailed descriptions for the characters they’re voicing along with posters for each and every one of them, which you can check out below.
We also have a few brand new character posters for Moana and her pit pig, Pua, as well as Maui and the Kakamora, who are apparently some sort of crazy pirates.
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
Maoana opens in theaters on November 23, 2016. Are you excited?
