'Moana's Original Script Had Moana Having Seven Brothers!

Moana is one of our favorite Disney films right now.

Who doesn’t love the story of a Polynesian chief’s daughter breaking old rules and making her own, all to save her family and people?

However, did you know that before the final movie was made and released, Moana actually had seven brothers?

According to producer Osnat Shurer, via EW, that was the actual plan for the movie.

“The very early story was that Moana had seven brothers and her dad was the one who wanted to revive voyaging,” he shared. “We were playing with that kind of idea, that she doesn’t get taken along even though she’s the best sailor, because she’s a girl.”

“Then we realized that we wanted this to be a true hero’s journey, in which our hero just happens to be female; we didn’t want her flaw and her problem to be her gender.”

Amen, to that!
