Moana is one of my kids’ most watched movies, behind Frozen, of course. So we were thrilled to hear the official confirmation that Moana 2 is on its way.
The details of the Moana sequel have unfortunately been a bit sketchy but it took 6 years for the Frozen sequel to hit the big screen so we can expect a bit of a wait for Moana 2.
The Moana 2 big news was confirmed on the Moana Instagram page and insiders believe that the movie is less than 4 years away. Undoubtedly this year’s COVID-19 pandemic would have affected the timeline of the new movie so it may be even longer in production.
The Stars Will Be Back In Moana 2
But the good news is that both Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be returning in Moana 2 in their roles as Moana and Maui. Songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda is also said to have met with Disney about being involved in the sequel of the film.
The original Moana movie was released by Walt Disney Animation Studios in 2016 and earned $650 Million worldwide. The movie ended with the Polynesian princess Moana returning home following her epic adventure acting as Wayfinder. It is expected that Moana 2 will pick the story up from where it left off and feature the return of demigod Maui.
