Disney quietly gave us an updated story synopsis for its eagerly anticipated 2016 animated musical film, Moana. The new synopsis adds a mysterious new twist to the story and premise:
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped — and no one today knows why.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes ‘Moana,’ a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, she meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.
It looks like Moana will be just as exciting, intriguing, and wonderful as we hoped it would be!
From John Musker and Ron Clements (the directors of your childhood favorites The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Treasure Planet), and starring the vocal talents of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ CGI musical Moana sails into cinemas on November 23, 2016.
