With the release of Moana a little over 10 months away, here is what we know of the film so far:

Moana, the newest Disney princess, embarks on an adventure with a Demi-God. Move over Mushu, this princess brought in the big guns:
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

In the film, the ocean is a sentient character that Moana is introduced to as a child. Maybe this character is related to Olaf… in summer.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson stars in the film as the demi-god, Maui, alongside Auli’i Cravalho, a 14-year-old newcomer from Hawaii.
4. The Sneak Peak
