Introducing Auli’i Cravalho; the voice of Moana
Who is Auli’I Cravalho? She’s a 14 year old Hawaiian girl who voices Moana – the first Disney Pacific princess. Now, Hollywood has not done many Pacific films to this tune. Most of those that we see are stereotypical of cannibal, savages and people without much culture. However, Moana could set a new tone.
There have been a few productions that portrayed the Pacific island culture in a positive light like The Adventures of Johnny Lingo but none of this magnitude and with supporting role from the Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson you can bet it will get a swell following.
So who is Auli’i? Well this video from Walt Disney Animation Studio’s introduces you to a new Pacific island star in the making.
