Auliʻi Cravalho’s life changed forever at age 14 when she was cast as the voice of Disney’s “Moana.” The Hawaiian native loved singing and acting, but they were just hobbies to her. So were horseback riding, swimming and microbiology, for that matter. A career in Hollywood seemed implausible at best.Aug 27, 2020

The fictional movie takes place 3,000 years ago in the islands of Polynesia, an area that includes Hawaii, Tonga and Tahiti. The star is 16-year-old Moana, voiced by Hawaiian actress Auli’i Cravalho, who goes on an ocean voyage with Maui, voiced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“Thank you to my brother – the one and only iconic maestro, Lin Manuel Miranda for writing this classic for me to sing and the world to sing along to,” Johnson said. Johnson added, “Thank you to all of you around the world 🌎 who love the song and the swaggy, fun it brings.”Nov 14, 2020
Moana Waialiki of Motunui is the title character of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 56th animated feature Moana (2016). … By 2019, Moana was officially inducted into the Disney Princess line-up, becoming the twelfth member.
Rachel House is a New Zealand actress, voice actress, and director. She is well known for her role as Joycie Waru in the TV-mini-series Hope and Wire. For Disney, she voiced Gramma Tala in Moana, Terry in Disney/Pixar’s Soul, and Mama Binturong in The Lion Guard.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson sang one song for Disney’s Moana in 2016. The Great One’s voice is heard on ‘You’re Welcome,’ the seventh track on the Moana soundtrack. The Rock did the voice-over for Maui’s character in the blockbuster film, which drew $645 million at the box office.

Although Moana is from the fictional island Motunui some 3,000 years ago, the story and culture of Moana is based on the very real heritage and history of Polynesian islands such as Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, and Tahiti.
‘Hamilton’ star Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote music for Disney’s ‘Moana’ … Miranda even turned to his own childhood for inspiration in crafting the song. And if it wasn’t for Johnson’s insanely catchy “You’re Welcome,” then Cravalho’s song would be the easy choice for the movie’s most memorable tune.
While the actor will be delivering some of his signature style to Mary Poppins Returns, audiences shouldn’t expect a downright Hamilton-esque performance from Lin-Manuel Miranda, just because he’s in the movie. The film marks his first leading role in a film, and it’s also a project he doesn’t have writing credits on.
He can sing and he does have decent technique but he doesn’t have the best voice tone-wise, at least by Broadway standards. He’s more of an actor who sings, and he does that job well – REALLY well.
