Moana 2 Poll:
Moana told the wonderful story of a girl name Moana, a Polynesian princess who teams up with a demi-god named Maui, voiced by Dwayne THE ROCK Johnson. It was a huge hit for Disney and made a powerful statement as far as showing a person of color in a main starring role. Moana smoothly slid into her role as a “Disney Princess” and added yet another rich layer to the Disney mythos.
Moana 2 Plot/ Moana 2 Story/ Moana 2 Spoilers
No official plot synopsis has been provided for Moana 2 just yet (darn it! Just like the Big Hero 6 sequel
! I want to know more!!!). Moana 2 is the sequel to Moana, as you might expect. We’ve talked to a few people we know at Disney for some inside information on what to expect. While nothing is concrete, there’s no doubt there will be a sequel, and some of the tentative plans have been leaked to us. Let’s see what’s in store, shall we?
They’ll likely hold off on the announcement for a while since these films take so long to get made and they don’t want to lose any momentum by announcing early and having everyone wait a million years for the film. That all said, we’ve heard a few rumored ideas.
More important that the plot, though, is the team returning in full, which it appears will be the case. However, the ending of Moana clearly lends itself to a number of sequels. Recall that Moana concluded with our hero restoring the lost heart to Te Fiti, which saves the day. Then, we learn that Moana is the new great fisherwoman of the tribe and she takes off to sail the world and discover new lands. Moana 2 will pick up there and see Moana sailing from one island to the next, all as part of a larger adventure. (This also works as it allows Disney to make a Moana themed waterpark ride.) The story might focus more on Moana growing into her role as the leader of the tribe.
Someone floated the idea of a love interest for Moana but an executive told us that was unlikely as they like the idea of a princess story that doesn’t revolve around a played out cliche. Still, if there is one, Moana will no doubt be the one doing the rescuing.
Moana 2 Director
Ron Clements John Musker directed the first Moana, so their directing the sequel makes a ton of sense. Why fix what’s not broke?
Moana 2 Writers
Ron Clements John Musker both co-wrote Moana. They were joined by a cast of writers and will be accompanied by them once again. They’ll also add Brian Lynch, who wrote the first Minions
film and The Secret Life of Pets.

Moana 2 Release Date
Moana 2 will be released, most likely, in November of 2020. That gives them enough time to get it right and keep it in the coveted winter blockbuster slot. It’ll tie in with marketing and toy efforts by Disney, all done to steal your kids money. (Read: your money.)

Best Actor/Actress in Moana 2
Auli’i Cravalho as Moana Waialiki. Cravalho arrived on the scene and has been a super delight to fans everywhere. Moana was, at least in part, modeled on the actress and she’s breathed life into a fantastic character. Not only is she one of the most front and center people of color in Hollywood at the moment, by representing Pacific Islanders, Cravalho exposes a part of humanity often overlooked. Not Asian, not black, but in between.
Worst Actor/Actress in Moana 2
None. Everyone is perfect, which is boring to read, I know. It’s also true.
