Disney's newest princess finally has a voice!

After hundreds of auditions of young actresses throughout the Pacific Islands, filmmakers finally found their girl — Auli'i Cravalho!

The 14-year-old actress is a native of Oahu and sounds like a perfect fit for Moana! She revealed:

"From baby time to now, I wanted to be a Disney princess and then I wanted to be a singer or an actress."

Now she gets to be all three!

And she gets to do it bringing a wonderful new princess to life! Auli'i said of her role:

"Moana is such an amazing character. She's brave, she is so empowered, she knows what she wants and she's not afraid to get it, and I think that's something that I can relate to as well. I just love watching how she goes along in this wonderful movie and grows as a person and helps her culture along the way."

Moana will journey across the sea to fulfill an ancient quest begun by her ancestors. And along the way she'll meet a demigod named Maui, played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson!

Is that intimidating for the high school freshman? She said:

"I am very excited about that, my gosh! I've never heard him sing before so it's going to be really interesting!"

We're very excited too! Especially to hear those Rock pipes!

Congrats, Auli'i! Get your first listen to the voice of Moana (below)!
