Disney Animation Studios announces Moana for release in 2016!
On the cusp of the release of Walt Disney Animation’s first Marvel adaptation, Big Hero 6, the studio has announced a new animated film for release in 2016. Moana is described as “a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure” that revolves around a spirited teenager and born navigator who sets out to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. The filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker is directing, and their previous credits include The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and Treasure Planet. Moana takes place in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, and the story finds the titular adventurer teaming up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, and traversing the ocean, encountering many creatures in the process.
