Last night, filmmakers, voice talent and special guests sailed down the blue carpet for the World Premiere of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Moana.” The movie introduces adventurous teenager Moana, whose connection to the ocean ignites a journey of a lifetime. The world premiere was part of the lineup for AFI FEST 2016 presented by Audi. Moana is in U.S. theaters November 23, 2016.
Disney has a new Polynesian princess: MOANA! Plus, a demigod named Maui. I was one of the 25 bloggers that sailed down the blue carpet at the World Premiere! Imagine singing, dancing, dole whips, and celebrities. It was a fantastic time. Check out who came out for the night:
Not only was it a fun carpet, but it was a truly Polynesian Party! Everything was themed out and full of high energy. Everywhere you looked was fun food, awesome drinks, and entertainment.
As you can see it was a fun time for time for all involved! Remember MOANA comes outNovember 23!!
For centuries, the greatest sailors in the world masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, 3,000 years ago, their voyages stopped for a millennium – and no one knows exactly why.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who is inspired to leave the safety and security of her island on a daring journey to save her people. Inexplicably drawn to the ocean, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) convinces the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) to join her mission, and he reluctantly helps her become a wayfinder like her ancestors who sailed before her. Together, they voyage across the open ocean on an action-packed adventure, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills her quest and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i, “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
