It looks like Dwayne Johnson will continue to dominate Hollywood with his involvement in a brand new Disney musical. Currently titled Moana, the film will be directed by the same team behind classics such as Aladdin and The Little Mermaid. With the recent release of Furious 7, this news managed to slip under the radar of most people.
Johnson is set to play the male led in the film, and since this is a musical, the character will be doing a lot of singing. The actor recently shared the news on Instagram. The synopsis of the film has also been released.
“The CG-animated comedy-adventure takes place in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania. Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.”
The story sounds pretty great and could prove to be another Disney classic. With the recent success of the musicals Frozen and Tangled, this movie looks like it could continue that trend and deliver a great experience.
