It seems Disney has another leading woman of color coming our way and I could not be more excited. The film is 5 years from now, bummer I know, the film is going to be called MOANA (at least for now, titles do change in that period of time). Things to take note is the obvious Mary Blair influence in this concept art, and I am really digging it, I see some tiki idols in the foreground as well. Bleeding cool gave a description of what the film is going to be about.
"it’s an epic, or even mythic, adventure set around 2000 years ago and across a series of islands in the South Pacific.
The lead character, Moana Waialiki is the only daughter of a Chief in a long line of navigators. She’s really a bit of nerd, but a nerd about sea voyaging, and when her family need her help, she sets off on an epic journey. Some of the other characters are demi-gods and spirits drawn from real mythology.”
2018 is quite some time away from now, regardless I could see Disney using this film as a tie in the adventureland area’s of the park. Since I feel a big Polynesian vibe from this film.
