Disney's Moana

Dwayne Johnson (Furious 7, San Andreas), also known to some fans as “The Rock,” has announced that he has signed on to voice the male lead in Disney’s upcoming animated feature Moana. The movie is the Mouse House’s 56th animated feature, and the next Disney princess feature after the 2013 juggernaut Frozen. It was originally planned for 2018, but was bumped up to 2016 this past October.

Johnson made the announcement via a post on his Instagram account, complete with an image of him in the process of signing the contracts. In addition to voicing the lead, the action superstar revealed that he’ll also be showing off his singing talents in the movie as well.

Below you can see what Johnson had to say about joining the project along with the image he shared, and maybe even videos of The Rock singing some tunes…if you simply just cannot wait until Moana is released to hear his voice.

Here’s the Instagram account post:

Here’s a synopsis of Moana:

In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania 2000 years ago, 14-year-old Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

Moana will be written and directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, whose previous credits include The Great Mouse Detective, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules, Treasure Planet, and The Princess and Frog. Eagle vs, Shark, Green Lantern, and What We Do in the Shadows actor Taika Waititi also worked on the screenplay.

And lastly, here’s a couple videos of Rock signing during his more recent run in the WWE—where he’s basically considered a god amongst men these days—feuding with John Cena, and also sticking it to Vickie Guerrero. They’re not exactly fitting tunes for a Disney flick, but you fans of Johnson should get a kick out of them if you’ve not already seen them.
