Pretty Freekin Scary's Eliana Su'a Says Moana Is Her 'Dream Role'

Eliana Su’a knows exactly what her dream role would be and it’s something that is currently in the works at Disney!

The young actress currently stars on the new Disney Branded Television series Pretty Freekin Scary, and she has revealed she would love to star as Moana in the upcoming live action movie.

Find out what she said…

“I think the one [dream] character ever since the movie came out is Moana,” Eliana shared with J-14. “Yeah, that’s a really big one that I would love to do.”

“I would be so honored to do that role, that’s in my dream role,” she added.

We actually just caught up with Eliana and learned 10 Fun Facts about her, where she revealed that dancing brings her a lot of joy, and she loves to dance different styles!

Eliana is also also Polynesian, like Moana, with some of her family coming from Samoa. Her dad is Samoan and Mexican, while her mom is Argentinian and Italian.

Check out THIS photo of her, dressed similarly to Moana, where she dons tapestry from her Polynesian and Pacific Islander heritage.

If Eliana were to be cast in the Moana live action movie, it would reunite her with Dwayne Johnson, who is reprising his role of Maui, and producing. They worked together as father and daughter in the movie Hobbs & Shaw!
