Auli'i Cravalho Will Voice Disney's Moana - See The Moment She Found Out!

Meet the voice of Moana Auli’i Cravalho!

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.”

Watch the cool video below where Auli’i finds out she got the part!
