Auli'i Cravalho will not return as Moana in the Disney remake

The remakes in real action they come out very well for Disney, but they imply a problem and it is not that the animation transformation in live action It can be seedy or nightmarish: they have a limited number. That is to say, that the number of classics to which the House of Mouse can return for a facelift CGI is not infinite, and this is what explains why he has already decided to jump to XXI century to review movies less than twenty years old. MoanaIn fact, it was released in 2016. It is not even seven.

The point is that Moana is a beloved film, and in April Disney announced that it would develop a remake of real action from it with the claim of having their dubbing interpreters now putting faces to the characters.

He remake of Moana It still does not have a release date or director, but its development has just undergone a turn.

And it is that Cravalho has thought better of it and has decided to abandon the project: the titular character of Moana it will have to be played by another actress while Cravalho remains executive producing. This is how he revealed it in an Instagram video: “When I was given the role of Moana at the age of 14 my life changed and my career began”, he explains. “I will not reprise the role in this remake live action. I think it is absolutely vital that the cast accurately represent to the characters and the stories we want to tell.”

“As an executive producer, I can’t wait to find another actress to embody Moana’s courageous spirit, undeniable wit and emotional strength. I am honored to pass the baton to the next Pacific Islander girl to honor the peoples, cultures and communities that helped inspire the story.” Who does remain in the cast is Johnson as Maui, who in his day also said that the film was very important to him because of his Polynesian ancestry.

Disney’s intention now is to find another actress of similar origins to Cravalho’s, and to do so in time for filming to begin.
