Disney’s hit movie ‘Moana’ is getting a sequel, and it’s coming to theaters on Nov. 27, 2024. The news came straight from Disney’s CEO Bob Iger, who shared the exciting update on CNBC. It turns out, ‘Moana 2’ was first thought of as a TV series. But after seeing the initial footage, Iger was so impressed that he decided it had to be a big-screen feature.

The sequel promises a fresh and thrilling journey. Moana hears a call from her ancestors and sets off on an adventure across the vast seas of Oceania. This time, she’s not alone. Alongside Maui, there’s a new crew of unlikely friends ready to brave the unknown waters. It sounds like an epic voyage is on the horizon.

For the music, we’ve got some familiar names and some new ones. Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina, who added magic to the first movie, are back. And guess what? Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear are joining in to create some tunes. However, Lin-Manuel Miranda, known for catchy hits like ‘How Far I’ll Go’ and ‘You’re Welcome,’ won’t be crafting new songs for this journey.

‘Moana’ was a massive hit for Disney, raking in over $680 million at the box office. It also had a huge run on Disney+, with fans streaming it for over a billion hours last year. So, it’s no surprise Disney wants to bring more of Moana and Maui to the big screen, especially after a tough year at the box office in 2023.

Dave Derrick Jr. is the one steering the ship as the director of ‘Moana 2’. And for fans of the original voice cast, here’s some good news. Auli’i Cravalho will voice Moana again in the animated sequel. She’s also involved in the live-action remake of ‘Moana’, but not in front of the camera. This time, she’s an executive producer, looking for someone new to bring Moana’s spirit to life in a different format.

It’s clear Disney is setting sail for another blockbuster with ‘Moana 2’. Mark your calendars for November 2024. It’s going to be an adventure we won’t want to miss.
