Is Auli’i Cravalho Returning As Moana?
Auli’i Cravalho has previously revealed that she won’t be coming back for the sequel film. The reason behind her decision is that she wants there to be space for more Pacific Islanders in Hollywood.
“It feels really important to me to pass the baton to the next young woman of Pacific Island descent, and I say that with my whole chest,” Cravalho said.
“I have been invited, and I exist in these beautiful AAPI spaces, Asian American Pacific Islander, and I am one of the few Pacific Islanders. And I’ll say it again, I am one of the few Pacific Islanders. And our stories are so important to be told,” she continued.
She then added, “And if it has to start with me — I’m 23, but if it starts with me, so be it. I want that door to swing wide open, and I cannot wait to meet the next Moana.”
Talking about the new Moana, Dwayne Johnson said, “One of the exciting things about that was actually finding our Moana and how exciting that has been. The global search to find our Moana — which, between you and I, we found her; not gonna tell you yet. [It’s] very exciting.”
