Talk about ticking boxes, this movie is shaping up to be beyond our wildest dreams…
Creators of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin ✓
Swooping soundtrack ✓
Awesome heroine ✓
Cast of amazing characters ✓
Oh, and did we mention The Rock is in it? ✓✓✓
You may already know that he’s playing Maui, but it’s time to meet the rest of the characters including our personal fave, Pua.


Voiced by talented 15-year-old Auli’i Carvalho, Moana is a teenager who dreams of becoming a master wayfinder.


Maui from Moana
Half god, half mortal, all awesome and voiced by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Tui & Sina

Tui and Sina from Moana
Temuera Morrison voices Moana’s father, Chief Tui, the gregarious and well-respected leader of the people of Motunui Island who wants Moana to follow in his footsteps. Nicole Scherzinger voices Moana’s mother, Sina, who always has her daughter’s back. Playful, sharp, and strong-willed, Sina appreciates Moana’s longing to be on the water, but also wants to protect her daughter from the fabled dangers beyond the reef.


Pua is Moana’s loyal pet pig with puppy energy and a joyous playful spirit. Just look at that face!


Alan Tudyk, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ lucky charm, is behind the voice of Heihei, the village idiot rooster who accidentally lands himself a front-row seat on Moana’s epic journey.


Tamatoa from Moana
Jemaine Clement provides the voice of Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab who has a fondness for shiny objects.


The Kakamora are an intense team of crazy, coconut-armored pirates who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Meet the characters in cinemas when Moana releases in December.
