More details about Disney’s Moana
Walt Disney Animation Studios revealed plans today for Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated comedy-adventure about a spirited teenager on an impossible mission to fulfill her ancestors’ quest. In theaters in late 2016, the film is directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin).
In the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania, Moana, a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui, to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore.
“John and I have partnered on so many films—from The Little Mermaid to Aladdin to The Princess and the Frog,” said Clements. “Creating Moana is one of the great thrills of our career. It’s a big adventure set in this beautiful world of Oceania.”
“Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself,” Musker said. “She’s the kind of character we all root for, and we can’t wait to introduce her to audiences.”
Anonymous asked: Okay, this is annoying me, but just because Honey Lemon *might possibly* be Latina, does not make the erasure of representation of Asian women okay. Let's not give Disney any cookies it doesn't deserve yet, ESPECIALLY when that erasure of Asian women is combined with a fetishization of Asian culture in the bullshit setting that is "San Fransokyo."
Which is exactly what makes this whole discussion problematic as well. They took a Japanese character and made her a (possibly) white-passing Latina. Just because she has an accent doesn’t lessen the whitewashing/Westernization.

Anonymous asked: What does MOGAI mean? I googled it and all I got was a type of Romulan spaceship, but that doesn't make much sense in the context of your post I saw it on (about bi and lesbian women working together).
MOGAI = marginalized orientations, gender alignments, and intersex. it’s meant to be an all inclusive umbrella term for asexuals, homosexuals, multisexuals, trans people, and intersex people. it’s a bit easier to type than LGBTQIAP+, and i think it feels more equal/inclusive.
For those of you who may not know what MOGAI means.
