Open Casting for Moana in Live-Action Film



Auli'i Steps Down

An update from Moana herself and from the sounds of those chickens we’d say she’s back here in the islands. Auli'i Cravalho announced she will not be reprising the role of Moana but as an Executive Producer, she will assist in finding the perfect Moana for the live action movie.








With Auli'i's departure, the hunt for a new Moana is now underway.

And So, The Search Begins

Check Out the Casting Call!

Disney is currently holding an open casting call for the role of Moana. Let's check it out!

Moana's Essence

Seeking an actress to portray a heroic, bold, and adventurous Pacific Islander, aged 16.

Journey Beyond the Reef

Moana yearns for purpose, seeking what lies beyond the reef despite her father's protests. Are you someone who can fill that role?

Filming will of course take place in Hawaii, so if you are a local resident, then this is perfect for you. Otherwise, perhaps an extended vacation?
