Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, who were behind “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin,” “Moana” showcases the life-changing journey of a tenacious 16-year-old who teams up with the mighty demigod Maui to fulfill an ancient quest.

Grammy-nominated singer Nicole Scherzinger joins the already announced cast that includes newcomer Auli‘i Cravalho, who lends her voice to the title character, Moana, a teenager who dreams of becoming a master wayfinder, and Dwayne Johnson (HBO’s “Ballers,” “Central Intelligence”), who voices Maui—half god, half mortal, all awesome.

Also joining Cravalho and Johnson are Jemaine Clement (“The BFG,”) who provides the voice of Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab who lives in Lalotai, the realm of monsters, Rachel House (“Whale Rider”) who lends her voice to Gramma Tala, Moana’s confidante and best friend. Scherzinger voices Moana’s mother, Sina, who always has her daughter’s back.
