That sounds like The Rock all right.

Dwayne Johnson isn't bad casting TBH and he can sing, Disney have always casted well in terms of voice acting with their films

I'm actually kind of surprised at how much I like this idea. I don't really like the roles he's had, but I like the guy himself in some ways, and I think he would do very well in certain roles in a Disney animated feature. I for one hope that this rumor is true.

Disney rarely has famous voice actors but this could be interesting. But it could take probably very long for for is to find out, didn't we learn Big Hero 6 voice actors only this summer?

Well we learned the main voice cast for Inside Out nearly two years prior to release, so it's not impossible. It just depends on if they want to advertise it or not. BH6's voice cast wasn't that big of a deal since the selling point of being an animated Marvel movie mattered much more.

Plus, looking back, they've had films with at least one "famous" person. (Kristin Bell, John C. Reilly, Mandy Moore, etc.)

The 90s WDAS films had famous voices in every film, it really started with Aladdin but even Beauty and the Beast and Oliver and Company had famous voices and even earlier than that The Jungle Book which had Louis Prima and The Rescuers which had Bob Newhart and Eva Garbor

There is an open casting call for the role of Moana!

 

MOANA – (female, 14-18) Smart, passionate, and funny. Brave, inquisitive, and confident. A teenager who yearns for something more. Strong singing voice a must."

Wow, they are REALLY going for a younger actress to play Moana.

 

BTW: The animal sidekick is a pot-bellied pig! :D

Music Composer Mark Mancina will do the score for this film

 

So will Phil Collins be coming back to do the songs then? ;)

I wouldn't be surprised if the Bobby and Kristen Lopez are asked to do the songs for Moana or perhaps Alan Menken and Glenn Slater although I'd like to see them approach a different musical songwriting team like Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey who have done recent musicals like Next to Normal and If/Then and are actually working with Disney on a stage musical version of Freaky Friday.

Doubt it. Disney seems to be looking for a Moana voice actress that can sing.
