who else is pumped for third impact next year
We’re a long way out from Moana, with its release unlikely to happen before 2018. The look of the film could change an awful lot in the meantime, and that’s always worth bearing in mind.
And the story could change too, so for now, I’ll sit on most of the fine detail I have about this film’s narrative. I will tell you, though, that it’s an epic, or even mythic, adventure set around 2000 years ago and across a series of islands in the South Pacific.
The lead character, Moana Waialiki is the only daughter of a Chief in a long line of navigators. She’s really a bit of nerd, but a nerd about sea voyaging, and when her family need her help, she sets off on an epic journey. Some of the other characters are demi-gods and spirits drawn from real mythology.
I think Moana is shaping up to be really quite tremendous. Stay tuned for more… over the next five years or so.
Coming in 2018 is Disney’s next fairy tale mythology animated feature film, set amongst the South Pacific islands, rendered in a ‘painterly-style CGI’ (think the Paperman short): and y’all are going to LOVE IT:
The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.
This is also currently being directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the duo who directed The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules and The Princess an the Frog! So there’s that
Also, Eric Goldberg has done some hand-drawn animation tests for the film, similar to what they did for Wreck-It Ralph, so hopefully those will begin to surface as they get further into production!
PUT EM UP, PUT EM UP! I’LL TAKE YA ON! I TAKE YA WITH ONE PAW TIED BEHIND ME BACK! I’LL FIGHT YA STANDIN’ ON ONE FOOT! I’LL FIGHT YA WITH MY EYES CLOSED!
