Introducing Disney’s first Polynesian princess! Fans at the D23 Expo got the first sneak peek of the 56th animated flick to come from the House of Mouse, ‘Moana’. Prepare yourself for a princess with some punch in these sneak peek pics!
If you’ve had your fill of Frozen Fever, then prepare to be transported to the tropics. Disney’s Moana is set to open in 2016, but Disney fans packed into the Walt Disney Animation presentation of D23 were treated to the first look of the film at the studio’s latest princess. She’s gorgeous!
The CG-animated comedy-adventure tells the story of Moana, a spirited teenager and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. If you’re thinking this sounds a little Lilo & Stitch meets Pocahontas, you’re so wrong. It’s WAY more like Lilo & Stitch meets Pocahontas meets Mulan! When her family gets into trouble, Moana picks up and sets off on a high-sea adventure, teaming up with her hero, demi-god Maui, voiced by Dwayne Johnson, on a quest set forth by her ancestors.
Moana was revealed to a packed house, and she is absolutely gorgeous. In traditional Polynesian attire, she wears a tube wrap top and a knee-lengthy skirt. Her unruly, curly hair gives her a little bit of an edge, and the smirk on her face reveals she might be as smug as Aladdin!
Moana will hit theaters in Fall 2016 and HollywoodLife.com definitely can’t wait to see what’s next!
