Moana premieres today and will open in theaters on November 23rd! The excitement for this newest Disney movie is at its peak, and everyone is dying to know more about the movie. We were lucky enough to sit down and host a Ron Clements and John Musker interview livestream over Facebook about a month ago, and we’re happy to share our talk about Moana, creative writing, and fun easter eggs with you today!
Ron Clements and John Musker are famous for creating Disney classics like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Princess and the Frog, so of course we asked them to tell us more about their writing process and how they were able to create such timeless films. Moana is their first Disney movie in over 5 years, so of course we asked them more about how their idea for the movie born, how it might fit in with other Disney movies, and of course what references to other films we might see in the film (hint: maybe a snowman?).
Check out the video to see our Ron Clements and John Musker interview and to learn more about all the great things they shared with us during the livestream.
Special thanks to Ron and John for sharing their thoughts with us, and a big thank you to all who tuned in live! Follow DisneyExaminer on Facebook to get access to even more behind the scenes features and check out Moana in theaters on November 23rd.
