Disney’s Moana clip introduces Gramma Tala


Disney’s “Moana” has already been screened by a few movie reviews and at early screenings. I’m not going to go into much detail here other than to say that he movie is being compared to modern Disney animated classics like “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin.” I think that’s a good sign.

In a new clip from Disney’s Moana, we see Gramma Tala and Moana talking about a task Moana has to do. It appears that Moana isn’t the only one that has a special relationship with the sea and its creatures.

See why Gramma Tala knows best:

About the movie:

For centuries, the greatest sailors in the world masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, 3,000 years ago, their voyages stopped for a millennium – and no one knows exactly why.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who is inspired to leave the safety and security of her island on a daring journey to save her people. Inexplicably drawn to the ocean, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) convinces the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson) to join her mission, and he reluctantly helps her become a wayfinder like her ancestors who sailed before her. Together, they voyage across the open ocean on an action-packed adventure, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills her quest and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i, “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
