'Moana' Will Be Dubbed In Te Reo Maori & The Film Just Found It's Maori Star

Moana is making big news once again for the Te Reo Maori version of the film.

Much like Auli’i Cravalho was cast in the English version of the film, once again Disney found its Maori star through an open casting call.

Jaedyn Randell will voice the Polynesian heroine in the new version, which is expected to debut in September for Maori language week.

This is the first Disney film ever to be dubbed into the language.

Of 250 applications, the New Zealand producers picked Jaedyn, 16, after a second look.

“We watched them twice. Accidently skipped her the first time,” they shared. Luckily that second decision was made, we almost missed her.”

Meet Jaedyn below!
