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.
"Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself. She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences." - John Musker
With Zootopia already confirmed for March, Moana is the second Disney animated film planned for release in 2016. Big Hero 6 opens next month and no Disney Animation Studios films are currently set for 2015 (possibly to give space to Disney Pixar’s Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur), making Moana Disney Animation’s 56th animated film.
