Moana live action "In the works"

A live-action version of the beloved animated movie Moana is in the works, according to Dwayne Johnson. The actor, who voiced Maui in the 2016 film, announced today during Disney’s annual shareholder meeting.

The original Moana follows the titular character as she embarks on a journey to save her people and restore balance to her island home. Along the way she meets Maui, a demigod who helps her on her quest. The movie was praised for its strong female lead and its representation of Polynesian culture.

Johnson's announcement has been met with excitement from fans of the original movie. Many have already begun speculating about who will play Moana in the remake.

It's unclear when production will begin or when the live-action version of Moana will be released, but it's sure to be an exciting project for Disney fans everywhere.
