At DISNEY STUDIOS signing contracts to play the male lead in their next big classic animated musical, #MOANA.

And in the background my homies Fred & Wasabi from #BigHERO6 are jumpin’ for joy joy cause they heard I’m gonna sing in the movie. #WeTrulyKnowWhereWereGoing #WhenWeUnderstandWhereWereFrom #NeverForgetHome #MOANA
Well, this is adorable news! Disney’s Moana has its first official cast member, and boy is he excited.
A musical from Ron Clements and John Musker (the same creative team that brought us Aladdin and The Little Mermaid), Moana will follow Disney’s first-ever Polynesian princess as she sails across the South Pacific with the help of the demigod Maui (reportedly the character Johnson will play).
It’s exciting to see Disney slowly diversifying their universe, and reassuring that they seem to be casting actors of actual Polynesian descent. What do you think, gang?
