Auli'i Cravalho Will Voice Disney's Moana - See The Moment She Found Out!
An Oahu, Hawaii native, Auli’i, 14, auditioned for the role after the open casting call was announced and can now say she’s a Disney Princess!
Auli’i will voice Moana, opposite Dwayne Johnson. The film centers on the spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. She meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui, and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage.
“I didn’t think I would have a chance,” she shared in a statement. “When I was little, I used to dance around the house singing at the top of my lungs. In my mind, that was performing and I loved the feeling of it. But I never imagined being in a Disney movie, being Moana—representing my culture in that way.”
