Get ready for the newest member of your Disney princess club!
In some AH-Mazing news, it's been announced that Disney's newest female royal will be named Moana:
"The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology."
This news has us moaning with excitement! An explorer?! Ugh, we guess that when you wish upon a star your dreams really DO come true!
Moana's "epic" story will take place 2,000 years ago, and will span many Polynesian islands across the Pacific! Sounds like the perfect adventure/vacay!
Since the film won't be coming out until 2018, we'll have to start writing pages and pages on fanfic to tide us over!
The film will use the same blend of digital and animation that Paperman used, so expect it to be as visually stunning as the short!
In short: We. Can't. Wait.
