Oceania: Thomas Kail will be the director of the live-action

The female protagonist, Vaiana still does not have an interpreter, but in these days the confirmation of who will take care of the direction has arrived: will be Thomas Kail known in the Broadway musical world for directing Hamilton one of the best known and most successful musicals. Precisely the direction of this musical made him win a Tony Award which are the American Oscars for the world of musicals and theater. An interesting choice that will therefore give the film a strong musical and choreographic connotation given the style of the musicals the director has worked on.

Another cast news it is the absence of Auli’i Cravalho who was the narrator in the animated film, but who will still be in the production team as executive producer. We just have to wait for the choice of the protagonist which certainly makes us very curious, especially to see her next to Dwayne Johnson who is now a veteran of Disney adventure films. It will also be very interesting to see it in a musical formula, with music and perhaps choreography!
