JJJ: Moana is a new “princess” who is breaking barriers. What was your favorite thing about her personally?

Auli’i: I loved that she was so devoted to her family and that she was so deeply connected to her culture as well. Oh my gosh, she is so brave. She has such an adventurous spirit.

JJJ: You and Moana do share a similar background in your Polynesian roots. Can you tell us how you connected with her?

Auli’i: I go to an all-Hawaiian school, Kamehameha Schools Kap?lama Campus, and there we learn the folklore of Maui, as well as how our ancestors navigated the seas using the stars. I connect to Moana the character as well as Moana the film because they?re real. To me, it feels so good to be on the water and connect to the ocean, too.

'Moana's Auli'i Cravalho Really Loved Dwayne Johnson's Blue Velvet Oscars Suit

'Moana's Auli'i Cravalho Really Loved Dwayne Johnson's Blue Velvet Oscars Suit

At the 2017 Academy Awards last week, no one could take their eyes off of Dwayne Johnson and his cool blue velvet suit…not even his Moana co-star Auli’i Cravalho!

“He wore this awesome, like, blue velvet tuxedo and I wanted to say, first of all, good to see you and second of all, great fashion taste,” she shared with Oh My Disney after the big event, where she was the star performer. “Like, you nailed it.”

While Auli’i didn’t see Dwayne after her performance, but she had to let everyone know that “I really enjoyed his outfit at the Oscars.”

But which of Auli’i‘s look was actually her favorite? “It would have to be actually the last dress that I wore. It was a beautiful blue gown by Rubin Singer and I wore it to the Vanity Fair Oscars Afterparty.”

She adds, “It was by far the more comfortable of the dresses that I had worn that week and it was kind of old Hollywood, kind of classy…I really enjoyed that dress.”
