Walt Disney Animation Studios’ MOANA in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi


Tickets can only be reserved online.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ MOANA in ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi was funded and coordinated by the University of Hawaiʻi Academy for Creative Media System using students, faculty and staff from 5 UH campuses in the re-recording of MOANA in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i. Original stars Auli‘i Cravalho and Nicole Scherzinger joined over 30 local ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i speaking actors and singers to produce this unique educational endeavor. Over 10,000 words were translated and 4,000 audio files recorded by student engineers. Disney Moana ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi was not made available for sale; however, hundreds of DVD copies were sent to local schools to encourage students to learn Hawaiʻi’s native language.

Presented by Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment, Gold House, the Academy for Creative Media, University of Hawai’i and The Walt Disney Company.

This screening of MOANA will have English subtitles.
