Disney just made an exciting announcement especially if you are a fan of Disney’s Moana.

A live-action Moana movie is coming and The Rock is back to star as as Maui!!


Okay, first off, I LOVE Moana.

Secondly, I love The Rock as Maui and I think he was/is perfect for the role!!


Disney’s Chief Executive Officer Bob Iger shared a video of The Rock revealing the news During today’s shareholders meeting for the Walt Disney Company.

According to the announcement, The Rock will also serve as a producer on the film, along with Hiram and Dany Garcia via their Seven Bucks Productions Beau Flynn via Flynn Picture Co.

Executive producers include Auli’i Cravalho, who voiced Moana in the 2016 film, and Scott Sheldon of Flynn Picture Co. Jared Bush and Samoan industry pro Dana Ledoux Miller will also take part in the production. 

“I’m deeply humbled and overcome with gratitude to bring the beautiful story of Moana to the live-action big screen,” Johnson said. “This story is my culture, and this story is emblematic of our people’s grace and warrior strength. I wear this culture proudly on my skin and in my soul, and this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reunite with Maui, inspired by the mana and spirit of my late grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia, is one that runs very deep for me. I want to thank my partners at Disney for their strong commitment to this special endeavor, because there is no better world for us to honor the story of our people, our passion and our purpose than through the realm of music and dance, which is at the core of who we are as Polynesian people.”

As of right now, we don’t have an official release date yet but we know it is coming in 2026!

I am truly so excited and cannot wait!
