In the end, she loses hope and gives the stone to the sea to choose someone else for the job. Later, her grandmother Tala’s spirit appears, giving her strength and inspiration. The strong willed Moana retrieves the heart and heals the ocean and the village. She then becomes the chief and way finder and resumes voyaging.

What about Moana 2?

The sequel for Moana has been in talks and demanded by fans for a long time now. The hopes were raised last year, when it was reported that Disney is in talks to bring the sequel of Moana. The details for Moana 2 are not officially available. However, sources said the studio is in process of production. In fact, Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson were rumored to reprise their roles as Moana and Maui. The news was a huge relief for the fans. However, questions about Moana 2 have resurfaced on social media platforms.

Even though there is no official announcement for the renewal, sources said that Moana 2 will drop at around late 2021 or early 2022. Hence, we all will have to wait more for at least a year. Certainly, fans believe the prevailing COVID-19 situation is causing the delay otherwise we would have had the confirmation by now.

Moana 2 is being expected to be more adventurous and emotional than the first movie. Nonetheless, it is believed, and somewhat clear, that Moana 2 will depict Moana’s life as the chief of Montunui. We might see the voyagers along with Moana discover other islands as well, as they were restrained from crossing the sea.
