From Ron Clements and John Musker, the team behind Disney's The Little Mermaid, Moana is set in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceana. A born navigator searching for a fabled island, Moana crosses paths with her hero, Maui. The two of them fare the open ocean on an action-packed voyage.

Moana will be Johnson's first voice-over role since 2009's Planet 51. The action star will star in San Andreas, play Black Adam in DC Comic’s Shazam. Johnson also stars in Furious 7 which hits theaters in April.
