Disney has made a ton of announcements this week so how about one more to add to all of this excitement!

We now have a new Polynesian Disney princess and her name is Moana. She enjoys sailing which will come in handy on her journey to find a legendary island in the region of Oceania.

Any Disney princess would not be complete without her fun partners in crime. Moana just so happens to  have a  pet pig named Pug and Hei Hei the rooster.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been cast as the demigod Maui, who was born human but was raised only by gods. He will be testing out his sining chops and if the soundtrack is anything like Disney’s “Frozen” we’ll be sure to be singing the songs at the top of our lungs.

This is one more thing we can look forward too when Moana sails into our hearts in 2016.
