Actress Auli’i Cravalho Set to Return as Moana in Disney’s Confirmed Sequel

The next installment, Moana 2, is scheduled to be released on November 27th, 2024, with Auli’i Cravalho voicing the lead character once again.

Exciting news! Disney has announced a surprise sequel to the original Moana animated film, separate from the live-action adaptation currently in the works.

Initially planned as a Disney+ series, Moana 2 impressed Disney’s CEO Bob Iger, leading to its upgrade to a theatrical release due to its quality.

Set to premiere on November 27th, 2024, Moana 2 promises a new adventure with Moana, Maui, and a fresh crew of unlikely sailors.

The sequel’s official synopsis teases Moana’s journey to distant Oceania waters, sparked by a message from her seafaring ancestors, navigating perilous seas for an extraordinary new quest.

While Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa’i will return as composers, Lin-Manuel Miranda will not be involved in the music. Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear will take over, known for their work on The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical.

The complete cast for Moana 2 is yet to be revealed, leaving uncertainty about Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s return as Maui, with ongoing discussions.

Deadline confirms Auli’i Cravalho’s reprisal of her role as Moana in the sequel, backed up by her social media post on February 28th hinting at a new adventure.

Auli’i’s return as Moana in the upcoming sequel has been officially confirmed, with potential involvement in other aspects of the film.

Following the announcement, Auli’i shared a TikTok video revealing her excitement for reprising the role of Moana.

Regarding the live-action adaptation, Auli’i has decided to pass on the role of Moana to another deserving young Pacific Island woman.
