Moana 2: Everything You Need to Know
Moana 2 is finally happening! Disney CEO Bob Iger made the surprise announcement in an interview with CNBC ahead of the company’s quarterly earnings report on February 7. The sequel is set to sail into theaters on November 27, 2024.
The Moana 2 story will pick up where the first film left off. Moana and the demigod Maui will set sail for long-lost waters after receiving a sudden call from her wayfinding ancestors to venture forth through the far seas.
Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson are expected to reprise their roles as Moana and Maui, respectively. No word yet on whether other cast members from the first film, such as Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, and Temuera Morrison, will return.
David Derrick Jr., who worked as a story artist on the original Moana, is directing the sequel. The music will be composed by Grammy winners Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear, Grammy nominee Opetaia Foa’i, and three-time Grammy winner Mark Mancina.
The Release Date
Moana 2 is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 27, 2024.
A first-look video accompanied the announcement, giving us a 15-second peek at Moana, who uses a blowing horn on the beach of an apparently deserted island.
The Live-Action Version
In addition to the animated sequel, a live-action version of Moana is also in the works. The Rock is set to reprise his role as Maui in the live-action film, which is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 27, 2025.
Moana 2 is sure to be a hit with fans of the original film. The sequel has all the ingredients for success: a great story, a talented cast and crew, and a beautiful setting. We can’t wait to see Moana and Maui back on the big screen!
