We have already been treated to a Disney film this year as Zootropolis was met with critical acclaim and grossed over $1 billion at the box office.



It is not often that we are treated to two Disney films in a year, but this December Moana is set to hit the big screen and it really is going to be an animation treat. I have to admit, Moana is the animated film of the autumn that I am looking forward to the most.

Moana is the fifty-sixth feature from Walt Disney Animation Studios and marks the return of Ron Clements and John Musker to the director's chair.

The filmmaking duo has brought us movies such as The Little Mermaid and Aladdin and is their first feature since the success of The Princess and the Frog back in 2009. It is good to see them back and I cannot wait to see what they deliver this time around.

The movie will introduce us to Auli'i Cravalho, who is set to voice the central character of Moana; this movie will mark her big screen debut.

Clements and Musker have brought together a fab cast list as Dwayne Johnson, Alan Tudyk, Jemaine Clement, Nicole Scherzinger, and Temuera Morrison are all on board.

Johnson has already had a terrific and hugely successful year and he bring the character of Maui, a legendary demi-god, to life. He is another larger than life Disney character and I am looking forward to see Johnson's performance.

Moana is 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 (Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (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 fulfils the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she's always sought: her own identity.

2016 has been a big year for Disney and currently has the fourth highest-grossing films of the year; Captain America: Civil War, Zootropolis, The Jungle Book, and Finding Dory, are the most successful films of the year so far.

Moana is on course to be a fantastic family adventure with some memorable characters, something Disney has become famed for over the years. It is a movie that I really cannot wait to see.

Moana is released 2nd December.
