Week in Review: Disney’s ‘Moana’ sets sail for 2016

24 October 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Disney’s Princesses are some of the most beloved cartoon figures in history, but even they have come under scrutiny as Hollywood pushes for more diversity in their films. Disney’s latest princess will be the first of Pacific Islander descent (unless you count Lilo of Lilo & Stitch as a princess). The CG-animated film is Moana, the story of a born navigator who travels through ancient Oceania along with a demi-God pal named Maui in order to find a secret island.

Deadline reported Monday that the film would be aiming for a November 2016 release date and would be directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog). In the meantime, we’ll be awaiting Pixar’s Inside Out and Finding Dory, both anticipated for 2015. And Deadline reported back in 2013 several other slots for two other Disney and Pixar films in both March and »

21 October 2014 7:07 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Setting sail in late 2016, Moana is the latest movie to be announced from Walt Disney Animation Studios, and is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the film making team behind such Disney classic as Aladdin, Hercules, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, and, a personal favorite of mine, The Great Mouse Detective. A CG animated comedy-adventure, Moana is set in the South Pacific world of Oceania, and sees the title character, a spirited teenager and born navigator, set out in search of a fabled island, battling enormous sea creatures, encountering ancient folklore, and teaming up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, along the way. Speaking of teaming up with Musker again, Clements said, "John and I have partnered on so many films, from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog.

Walt Disney Animation Studios confirms its late 2016 release, Moana

20 October 2014 11:11 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The directors of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin will being a new Disney princess, Moana, to the screen in 2016...

Once Walt Disney Animation Studios is done with its now completed Big Hero 6 - which we don't get in the UK until January 2015 - its next project is Zootopia. Zootopia is being directed by Byron Howard, co-helmer of Bolt and Tangled, and it's about a fox who goes on the run when he's framed for a crime that he didn't commit. On his tail is the top detective in Zootopia, a rabbit by the name of Lt Judy Hopps.

Zootopia is currently targeted for release in March 2016, and it'll be the 55th in the official line of Disney animated films. Number 56? Glad you asked. That one's just been formally announced.

It goes by the name of Moana, who is set to be Disney's next Princess, albeit a slightly different one. »

Meet Moana, The Title Character For A Brand New Disney Animated Movie

20 October 2014 11:37 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Walt Disney Studios is riding the wave of the success of Frozen with a new animated adventure about another fearless teen heroine. Her name--and the name of her movie--is Moana. And she's got an incredible team behind her big screen birth. Walt Disney Animation has unveiled that Moana is being written and directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. If those names are familiar, it's probably because you've seen their names on your TV during the countless times you've watched The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and (possibly to a lesser degree) The Princess and the Frog. Unlike these gorgeous examples of Disney's classic hand-drawn animation technique, Moana will be a CG-animated feature, more in line with Disney's recent cartoon hits, Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph and Frozen. You can get an idea of how Moana might look from the concept art up top. While a great number of Disney's animated features over the »

Disney Animation Unveils ‘Moana’ From ‘Little Mermaid’ Filmmakers For November 2016

20 October 2014 11:08 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Disney Animation Studios today announced plans for Moana, a CG-animated comedy adventure that will be released in late 2016. The pic, about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest, is being directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the duo behind previous Disney blockbusters The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and The Princess And The Frog.

In March, Disney unveiled release date plans for its next eight animated pics — at that point it was dates only, no titles — through 2018. It looks like the studio is eyeing that November 23, 2015 spot for Moana.

The plot: In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage in which they encounter enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds, and ancient folklore.

Late last year, riding high on the success of female-centric flick "Frozen," Disney announced that another young girl would be at the heart of its next animated feature, "Moana."
