IS­LAND DREAMS

Dolly - - Fresh Af -

THE LOW­DOWN: Moana, a gorj teenager from the re­mote South Pa­cific is­land of Mo­tunui, sets off in search of a mys­ti­cal place full of se­crets to find a way to pro­tect her fam from dan­ger. SET­TING: A mys­ti­cal is­land in trop­i­cal Poly­ne­sia. GANG’S ALL HERE: As Moana sets off on her jour­ney, she is fol­lowed by huge and strong demigod Maui, a pet rooster and a cute AF lit­tle pig. STAR POWER: This is the de­but role for 16-year-old gal Auli’i Cravalho. Pop star Ni­cole Scherzinger (you re­mem­ber her – she’s the judge from The X Fac­tor UK who put 1D to­gether!) voices Moana’s mother and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ John­son voices Maui. BTS GOSS: Hun­dreds of girls au­di­tioned for the role of Moana, but high-school fresh­man Auli’i (who was 14 at the time and last to au­di­tion) suc­cess­fully nabbed the role. Time to round up your girl gang – Dis­ney’s lat­est mas­ter­piece, Moana, sails into a cinema near you this Box­ing Day. Here are all the deets you needa know.
