Revealed: Why Disney’s New Princess Moana Won’t Have a Love Interest
She’s a free lady! There won’t be an adoration enthusiasm for Moana, the main character in Disney’s first-ever animated film about a Polynesian princess
Amid a Thursday, July 21, board for the motion picture at San Diego’s Comic-Con, directors John Musker and Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin) clarified why Moana, voiced by newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, won’t be searching for her own version of Prince Charming.
Asked what separates Moana from the Disney courageous women before her, Musker rushed to bring up that the character’s story is revolved around getting herself, as opposed to experiencing passionate feelings for a potential suitor.
“There is no romance in the movie,” Musker said, by L.A. Times. Much like Frozen’s Elsa, who made her presentation in 2013, Moana serves as her own particular legend and needn’t bother with the camaraderie of a man to characterize her.
Disney released a teaser trailer for Moana on Sunday, June 12, treating fans to an exciting first take a gander at the energetic 16-year-old’s voyage over the Pacific Ocean.
“The whole idea of voyaging wasn’t in our initial story. And then we learned what a source of pride it was for [the people of the Pacific Islands], that they were the world’s first great navigators, using dead reckoning to find their way across the ocean,” Musker disclosed to MTV News a year ago. “We wanted to celebrate that.”
In the clip,, we see Moana intrepidly setting out on an adventure crosswise over area and ocean — with her demigod bestie, Maui (voiced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), and pet pig Pua — to take in more about her progenitors’ past.
Beside praising young lady influence and the rich history of the South Pacific, the tale of Moana is set to a stellar soundtrack, mostly made by Hamilton maker and star Lin-Manuel Miranda, who as of late won the honor for Best Original Score of a Musical at the 2016 Tony Awards on Sunday, June 12.
Watch the trailer above. Moana hits theaters on Wednesday, November 23, 2016.
