Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans for the animated feature Moana, a CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest.
Scheduled for release in late 2016, the film is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, whose previous credits include The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog and Aladdin.
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
Disney released some concept art to go with the announcement. Take a look:
