From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. "Moana is the 16-year-old daughter of the chief of Motunui," says director Ron Clements. "She’s brave, determined, compassionate and incredibly smart. She has a never-say-die aƫ tude and a profound connection to the ocean."
Moana dons seven outfits in the movie, including the red tapa garment the character wears as a toddler when she first encounters the ocean character.
Since much of the film is set on the ocean or near it, filmmakers worked hard to create systems and processes to create believable water. Keen to understand the clarity of the water, the team created a physical rig that was 50 feet long. A series of balls that were painted gray, black and red were hung from a rope every five feet and photographed underwater in a pool in Van Nuys, Mission Bay in San Diego and off the coast of Bora Bora.
To create the starry sky featured in “Moana,” filmmakers turned to astronomers who researched what stars would’ve been visible in Pacific Island skies 2000 years ago.
