The voice of Moana in Disney’s upcoming animated movie, Auli’i Cravalho, will be headed to the sunny shores of Singapore on Nov 9, Disney announced on Friday.
Cravalho will be accompanied by producer Osnat Shurer and two Southeast Asian Disney animation artists – Singaporean Roger Lee (Lighting Artist) and Indonesian Griselda Sastrawinata (Visual Development Artist).
