Follow Along With Me To The Moana Event!

Thank you to Disney Studios for hosting me during the Moana Event.

moana-eventTwenty five bloggers are busying packing their bags and planning their interview questions. Why? Because the Moana Event kicks off in just a few more days! It’s fair to say everyone is just a little freaked out. The reason why will be totally obvious once you take a look at our interview list.

Want a closer look at what’s in store?


MOANA’S MISSION — Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) may be a demigod—half god, half mortal, all awesome—but he’s no match for Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho), who’s determined to sail out on a daring mission to save her people. Moana's first challenge is convincing Maui to join her. Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, produced by Osnat Shurer, and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i, “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016. ©2016 Disney.

Sunday begins with interviews, starting with Lin-Manuel Miranda. That noise you just heard? It was 25 bloggers simultaneously passing out. Following Lin, we’ll chat with Auli’i Cravalho, voice of Moana. Directors Ron Clements and John Musker are next on the schedule. (They’re the guys behind such little-known films as The Little Mermaid and Aladdin!) Dwayne Johnson-The Rock-and voice of Maui follows Ron and John. After The Rock we’ll interview producer Osnat Shurer, then Opetaia Foa’i who created music for the film.

We’ll follow up our Moana interviews by catching a presentation on Inner Workings with director Leo Matsuda and producer Sean Lurie.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess & the Frog) and produced by Osnat Shurer (Lifted, One Man Band), Moana sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
