The first attraction of the resort’s current multi-year expansion, the new lively atmosphere stage show, “Moana: A Homecoming Celebration,” will officially open to guests on May 25 in an entirely new outdoor venue, Jungle Junction, in Adventureland. The heroine of the popular animated film, Moana, will invite guests to join her adventure in a 20-minute live show rich with inspirational visual storytelling, dancing, puppetry and music. Guests can join this interactive show with Moana, six performers and two live drummers as they share Moana’s epic adventures with the demigod, Maui, to restore the heart of Te Fiti, the mother island who gives life.
Guests are invited to be part of the show and interact with performers, from playing drums to joining forces in dramatizing the attack of the Kakamora pirates, to moving like ocean waves to help guide Moana on her journey, to cheering Maui as they encourage him to help Moana. Throughout the show, performers are playing multiple roles as they re-tell Moana’s adventures, with the use of different voices, acting, choreography and props, inspiring guests’ imagination and creativity, further immersing them into the show.
“Moana: A Homecoming Celebration” tells a story of Polynesian culture with a virtue of recognizing the inner beauty within each and every one.
