Get The Scoop on Disney's Newest Princess - Moana!

Even though we’re all — JJJ included — still riding high on the Frozen train, the buzz around Disney’s next princess, Moana.

The film centers on the title Polynesian princess, Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators.

As the summary states, “when her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.”

Directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, the movie is described as a “mythic adventure set around 2000 years ago and across a series of islands in the South Pacific” and rumored to be made in hand-drawn/computer-animated technique introduced with Disney’s short film Paperman.

Although Mr. Musker has stated that it is “far too early to apply the Paperman hybrid technique to a feature. The Meander digital in-betweening interface still has a host of production issues (including color) that need to be perfected.” We can only wait and see!

Moana is expected to debut in 2018.
