Disney Moana

Walt Disney Animation Studios has started work on “Moana.” The movie will be directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, who have also worked on “Aladdin” and “The Princess and the Frog”).

Here’s a note from Ron:

John and I have partnered on so many films—from ‘The Little Mermaid’ to ‘Aladdin’ to ‘The Princess and the Frog.’ Creating ‘Moana’ is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.

John added:

Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself. She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.

The CG animated comedy/adventure movie is about a teen on a mission to fulfill a quest set by her ancestors. Get ready for the movie to arrive in theaters in late 2016. Here’s a description of the movie:

In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.

Above is the very first concept artwork for the movie. What do you think so far?

Frankie Grande Broadway Rock Of Ages

Ariana Grande’s older brother Frankie Grande is heading back to Broadway! Frankie is set to star in the musical “Rock Of Ages” from November 10, 2014 until January 18, 2015.

Frankie told People Magazine about his role in the production:

I’m so unbelievably excited. I have wanted to play Franz ever since I first saw the show. I think it is one of the best, funniest, most clever roles.

Frankie also added:

I’ve actually had three final callbacks since the show originally opened. Every time I made it down to the final two people, they went with the other guy. The first time I wasn’t blonde. The second time I was too blonde. The third time I was too short. That is how Broadway works. They have a surplus of actors, so they can be that picky.

Let us know if you get tickets to see Frankie in the show!
