January 3rd, 2016 by Marc Comments


We’ve known for a while now that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is starring in Disney’s new animated movie Moana (here).

Well, now we have our first look at the movie in the form of a new behind-the-scenes promo clip.

The movie stars the voice talents of Dwayne Johnson, Alan Tudyk and newcomer Auli’i Cravalho as the title character.

We’re looking forward to this one…

Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker — of “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” and most recently, “The Princess and the Frog” directing fame — “Moana” is slated for a November 23, 2016 release.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
