Dwayne Johnson and Disney Are Making a Live-Action "Moana"
ANOTHER Disney live-action remake is in the works . . . 2016's "Moana". Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson made the announcement yesterday with a short video filmed in Oahu, Hawaii with his two younger daughters.
He will produce and return as Maui, the demigod of the wind and sea. Auli'i Cravalho, who voiced Moana in the animated original, is returning to executive produce, but there's no word if she'll play Moana again.
Dwayne said, quote, "This story is my culture, and is emblematic of our people's grace and warrior strength. I wear this culture proudly on my skin and in my soul . . . "This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reunite with Maui, inspired by the mana and spirit of my late grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia, is one that runs very deep for me."
