Looks like the Rock is lending his voice to Disney’s new animated movie…
On his Twitter today, the actor confirmed that he will voice Maui, a demigod who aids the title character Moana.
The movie will be CGI and from Ron Clements and John Musker and is: “set in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania. Moana, a born navigator, searches for a fabled island and her incredible journey teams with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, as they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.”
Still no announcement on who’ll play Moana: “Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
