The 89th annual Academy Award nominations are in! Walt Disney Animation Studios' two feature animation releases of 2016, Zootopia and Moana, have both been nominated for Best Animated Feature. As we congratulate the fantastic work produced at the historically acclaimed studio, check out all of Disney Animation's nominations after the break!
Walt Disney Animation Studios' Moana, directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog), is pure magic. The film tells the story of born-way finder Moana Waialiki, daughter of Chieftain Tui (Temuera Morrison) and mother Sina (Nicole Scherzinger), who sets out on a mission to save the people of the island of Motonui, Moana's home. Moana, played by 15 year-old newcomer Auli'i Cravahlo, is simply one of the best heroines in Disney's canon. Her fierce tenacity and desire for adventure provide perfect motivation for her journey to save her people. Combining the best in Disney character establishment, storytelling, and world building, the Polynesian-set musical is yet another example of Disney Animation's reestablished reign over competitive sibling studio Pixar for the title of “King of Animation."
