Mulan, Snow White, Tiana, Cinderella, Belle, Merida, Rapunzel, Ariel, Aurora, Jasmine and Pocahontas?
Get ready for the newest member of your Disney princess club!
"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!
In short: We. Can't. Wait.
