Moana 2 is in the making! The film is set to be directed by Dave Derrick Jr.
Get ready to set sail with Moana once more! Disney’s beloved animated film is returning to Indian shores with its highly anticipated sequel, Moana 2. Fans are already buzzing with excitement, and memories of Bappi Lahiri’s iconic voice work in the Hindi version of the first film linger on. But the big question remains: will Moana 2 embrace the magic of Bollywood once again?
For the unversed, Bappi Lahiri’s energetic rendition of “Shona” as Tamatoa, the giant crab, became a highlight for many Indian viewers. The late singer added his a personal touch to the magical performance which had everyone talking. It added a cultural flavour that resonated deeply with the audience. With such a successful precedent, speculation is rife about whether Disney will incorporate another Bollywood touch in Moana 2.
While there’s no official confirmation yet, the possibility certainly sparks imagination. Could we see another legendary singer lend their voice to a new character? Perhaps a renowned composer will create an original song with a distinct Indian flair? Or maybe even a Bollywood star might join the cast for a unique cameo?
The possibilities are endless, and fans are already throwing their favourites into the mix. Needless to say, Moana resonates with the Indian audiences. Moana 2 could further bridge the gap between Disney’s animation and the vibrant world of Indian cinema.
Moana 2 is helmed by Dave Derrick Jr while the song composition of the musical adventure film is overseen by Grammy winners Emily Bear and Abigail Barlow among others. The upcoming film will centre around Moana embarking on another “expansive new voyage with Maui” when her “wayfinding ancestors” send her a sudden message. This time, Moana and Maui will be accompanied by a crew of seafarers as well. Moana 2 is set to release in theatres in India on November 27, 2024.
