Auli'i Cravalho Reveals The Story Of Her 'Moana' Audition

We all know the story of how Auli’i Cravalho got her big break with Moana.

She went out for a casting call for the voice role of the title character, and got the news she was going to be that voice in the coolest way — but did you know that there’s more to that story?

Turns out, Auli’i didn’t plan on going out for the role at all!

“My friends and I put together an audition [tape] for [a] charity event…however, we didn’t make it to the charity event, we didn’t get through the audition,” she shares.

Auli’i adds, “But the woman who was going through those auditions was also the casting director for Disney, so she saw our auditions and asked if I wanted to – instead of audition for the charity – audition for Moana. Thankfully, I got that one.”

See, when one door closes, another really does open!
