The world has gone crazy for Moana. The film was met with an overwhelmingly positive response from both audiences and critics, who praised its message of female empowerment, engaging story, and beautiful animation.
It also became the first Walt Disney Animation Studios movie to receive a Best Animated Feature nomination at the Academy Awards since Frozen in 2014. Since we’ve all been waiting so eagerly for the release of Moana 2, Here’s everything you need to know about the sequel of moana.
Why Does It Take So Long to Make a Disney Film?
The process of making an animated film is very detailed, which means there are a lot of stages to it. Disney films take a lot of time, effort, and people to make. A lot of people are involved, and it just takes time to put together an incredible film, like Moana. Some of the reasons why it takes a while to make an amazing Disney film include:
- Finding the right voices for the characters. Disney cast Auli’i Cravalho as the voice of Moana and Dwayne Johnson for Maui, but the rest of the voices were recorded over a three-year period during which time the animation was also created.
- Creating and designing the characters. The visual development artists have to be really precise about the design of each and every character. Every one of them is given a lot of attention.
- The creation of the music and soundtrack for the film.
- The filming of the actual scenes.
Moana 2 Release Date
The original plan was to release the sequel in 2019, but it has been pushed back to 2020. The reason for the delay is unclear, but it might be due to the success of Ralph Breaks the Internet. Many people were expecting the sequel to Moana to be released in 2019, but it was pushed back to 2020 to give the animators more time to work on the film.
In 2015, a rumor surfaced that Moana 2 would be released in December 2018. However, in March 2018, the Walt Disney Studios announced that Moana 2 is in the early stages of development and has no release date yet.
In August 2018, director Ron Clements revealed that he would like to begin work on Moana 2 as soon as possible. I’m already talking with the writers and we’re thinking about what our options are.
In November 2018, Moana 2 writer Jared Bush revealed that after completing work on the first film, he had set aside six months to work on the second one.

Moana 2 Trailer When Will it Come Out?
It’s still too early to know when the trailer will be released, but it is likely to arrive in the next few months. We can be fairly certain that it will be released before the end of the year, but nothing has been confirmed yet. When there is news, we’ll update this article with all the details.
What will happen in Moana 2?
Almost nothing is known about the sequel just yet. We know that a few of the characters from the original film will return, including Maui and Gramma Tala. There will also be a new villain, who hasn’t been revealed yet. It’s likely that the sequel will follow Moana and Maui as they set out to explore the world and discover new cultures. It could also include a visit to Tamatoa, the crab from the forest.
What is the plot of Moana 2?
There is no word yet on the plot for the sequel, but we can expect to see the same beautiful animation, engaging characters, and a positive message. The plot may follow the same narrative as the first movie, but the filmmakers have promised that it will be a fresh story.
Are you excited for the sequel to Moana?
We’re definitely excited for the sequel, but we’re also a little apprehensive. Only the best animators will work on the sequel, but there’s still a chance that they could mess it up. The sequel to Frozen was good, but it didn’t quite live up to the hype. Let’s hope that Moana 2 can surpass the original movie.
Will there be a singing humpback in Moana 2?
There’s a good chance that there will be a singing humpback. The first film managed to include a singing crab, so it’s likely that there will be singing again.
There’s no word yet on which songs will appear in the sequel, but it likely that there will be at least one new song. Disney will let it be anything less than amazing. Let’s just hope that it’s worth the long wait.
Will Moana 2 Be On Netflix?
Netflix has been a safe haven for many Disney movies and Moana is no exception. We know this because other Disney movies like Frozen and Lilo and Stitch have recently had their presence on Netflix diminished. It doesn’t necessarily mean they will never appear again but it does give us a good indication of what we can expect from Moana 2 on Netflix in the future.
