Today Disney revealed the concept art to their upcoming animated film Moana, which will hit theaters late 2016. The film is being directed by Ron Clements and Jon Musker, the duo who brought to us such classics as The Great Mouse Detective, Aladdin, and The Little Mermaid as well as Hercules, Treasure Planet, and The Princess and the Frog.
Moana tells the story of a Polynesian teenager who undertakes her ancestor’s quest of finding a mythical island. Along the way she teams up with the legendary demi-god Maui in this new adventure set in the ancient world of Oceania.
According to Musker, “Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself.”
Here’s to the newest Disney princess!
