If you didn’t stan Auli’i Cravalho already, you’re going to starting right now.

The Moana actress, who is in New York filming her upcoming NBC series, Rise, headed outside to catch the Solar Eclipse today, and took a selfie to commemorate the occasion.

After posting the shot on Twitter, Auli’i‘s pic got a ton of responses ranging from “marry me” to comparing her beauty to the eclipse.

One in particular though stuck out to Auli’i.

“I’m 16 too how is it you look so good and i look like a poorly baked potato?” one fan named Dany replied to her.

Auli’i wasn’t going to let Dany be discouraged or call herself ugly in any way, shape or form — and her response was perfect:

Auli'i Cravalho Wants To Develop a Sunscreen That Won't Harm The Reef

Auli’i Cravalho made headlines as Moana, and we know she’s going to be amazing in NBC’s Rise.

Another thing she’s kind of amazing at? Science!

Did you know that while Auli’i was recording the voice of Moana, she was taking an insanely hard science class?

Taught by Gail Ishimoto, the teacher revealed to Honolulu magazine that Auli’i was breaking through barriers.

“She opened up a whole new world for us, working on a project on how sunscreen affects our coral reefs here. We’d start at 7am and work until 2am.”

Auli’i added that it was something she was really passionate about.

“Someday when I’m not running around, when I’m not getting on planes 24/7, I would like to develop a sunscreen that wouldn’t harm the reef.”

While Rise on the horizon, Auli’i isn’t ruling out science or even law for a future career.

“I’m planning on continuing my education. I’m not sure about shifting focus to this industry—I was planning on law and specifically focusing on the biological field. Maybe I can do both?”

Auli'i Cravalho Returns as Moana For 'Wreck-It Ralph' Sequel With Other Disney Princesses

Auli'i Cravalho Returns as Moana For 'Wreck-It Ralph' Sequel With Other Disney Princesses

Auli’i Cravalho isn’t done with Moana just yet — she’s returning for a brand new movie, Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet!

Disney’s newest heroine princess will be back on the animated screen with her Princess predecessors including Frozen‘s Anna (Kristen Bell), Tangled‘s Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), Brave‘s Merida (Kelly MacDonald), The Princess and the Frog‘s Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), Pocahontas (Irene Bedard), Aladdin‘s Jasmine (Linda Larkin), Mulan (Ming-Na Wen), Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle (Paige O’Hara), and The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel (Jodi Benson).

In the clip presented at the D23 expo, Ralph and Vanellope find themselves transported to the most magical place on the internet: OhMyDisney.com, where Vanellope decides to sneak into a dressing room full of Disney Princesses — to mess with them.

When the Princesses discover the tiny intruder, they prepare to attack. Mulan pulls out her sword, Merida grabs her bow, and Cinderella turns her glass slipper into a shiv. In order to save her skin, Vanellope tells the Princesses that she, too, is a Princess — which she is!

After the intrusion, the Princesses defend themselves even more, kicking aside all those princess tropes.

The Wreck-It Ralph sequel opens November 21st, 2018.

Auli'i Cravalho Offers Up First Details About Her Character on New Show 'Rise'

Auli'i Cravalho Offers Up First Details About Her Character on New Show 'Rise'

We all know Auli’i Cravalho as Moana, but come this fall, we’re going to know her as someone entirely different.

The actress will star as Lilette Suarez in NBC’s Rise, which centers on a high school drama department which comes alive with the help of a passionate teacher.

Speaking with Broadway World, Auli’i revealed the first details about her character.

“This character is so close to my heart,” she said. “She doesn’t come from a perfect home and no one does and that’s what counts.”

Auli’i adds that that is what makes her identify with Lilette the most.

“That no matter what, no matter what your passion is, no matter where you start out from, it’s where you go and what you do with your life, that is something that even you don’t fully know and you won’t know until you try.”

The First Song Auli'i Cravalho Ever Sang in Public Was 'The Rainbow Song' From Barney!

The First Song Auli'i Cravalho Ever Sang in Public Was 'The Rainbow Song' From Barney!

Auli’i Cravalho and her Rise co-star Damon J. Gillespie stick together at NBC’s New Talent Mixer in New York City this week.

The two new network stars were seen at the event, mixing and mingling with Josh Radnor, Arielle Kebbel and more.

In a recent interview, Auli’i dished on her first ever performance and it’s cuteness will blow you away.

“I don’t even remember the name of the song. Everyone knows the song, except no one really knows it. It’s like “Red is the color of an apple, orange is the color of an orange …” Auli’i shared, not remember the name of “The Rainbow Song” from Barney & Friends.

She continued, “I’m pretty sure I stopped at yellow, because I had stage fright, and I was in a local pizza joint, because they said, if there was a rainbow, and you sang the song, you get a free slice of pizza.”

But, she didn’t get that free slice of pizza.

“My mom had to buy me the slice of pizza because I couldn’t finish the song,” Auli’i says. “But I do believe that was the first song I ever sang in public.”
