Disney's Moana Will NOT Have A Love Interest — But You Can Still VOTE For Your Favorite Disney Romance!
She's got bigger fish to fry.
Disney's Moana is the story of the titular 16-year-old girl, voiced by Hawaiian newcomer Auli'i Cravalho, who goes on an adventure to find a banished demi god Maui (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) to save the world!
During Disney's panel at San Diego Comic-Con, directors John Musker and Ron Clements revealed that the Polynesian princess will not have a love interest in this story.
The Little Mermaid filmmakers noted that this is a film about the heroine finding herself — and while she won't have a romance with a prince, Moana has a magical relationship with the sea.
With recent Disney hits like Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph centering around themes about friendship and self-acceptance, we think this idea will really pay off for modern audiences.
Sure, there's so much more for children to take away in movies aside from finding their true love — but we can never forget our favorite couples from Disney classics!
