Moana - NZDadsWalt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana has dazzled both critics and audiences, with the sweeping story of a spirited teenager who sets sail on a daring adventure to save her people, starring newcomer Auli‘i Cravalho as the voice of brave and tenacious Moana and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the larger-than-life demigod Maui. Now, Moana sets a new course, arriving to homes on Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray, and DVD on April 12.

According to directors Ron Clements and John Musker, the story of Moana was inspired by the great explorers who masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. Moana’s quest to become a wayfinder also serves as a journey of self-discovery, empowering her to find her own identity – a beautiful and powerful message for all audiences.

Joining Auli‘i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson is a cast full of kiwi connections – Temuera Morrison  as Chief Tui, Rachel House as Gramma Tala, and Jemaine Clement  as Tamatoa. Helmed by Clements and Musker, the directing team behind The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and The Princess and the Frog, Moana features original songs from a team that includes Tony®-, Emmy®- and Grammy®-winning lyricist/composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foaʻi.

Continuing the fun-filled adventure, families can continue their journey filled with hours of extensive and entertaining bonus offerings
