Dwayne Johnson is in talks to voice the demi-god Maui in Disney Animation’s 2016 CG-animated comedy-adventure feature “Moana”. “The Little Mermaid” team of Ron Clements and John Musker are behind the nautical adventure set in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania.
Moana is a natural born navigator who sets out on a voyage to find a fabled island. Her incredible journey teams her with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, as they traverse the open ocean. The role of Moana herself has not been cast.
No deal with Johnson is yet in place, and Disney has no comment on his potential casting at the moment. Johnson wrapped both the seventh “Fast and Furious” film along with the earthquake action thriller “San Andreas” earlier this year and is slated to play the villain Black Adam in the DC comic book adaptation “Shazam”.
