We’ve been staring at the edge of the water, long as we can remember, never really knowing if there’d be a sequel to the glorious adventure that is Disney’s Moana.
In the company’s earnings call on Wednesday, along with some less great news, Disney announced the coming of Moana 2, the follow-up to the 2016 film. The sequel is set to be released in cinemas on Nov. 27.
In the call, CEO Bob Iger said Moana 2 had originally been developed as a TV series for the company’s streaming platform Disney+ but the company pivoted to a theatrical release instead. Popularity is on Moana‘s side here, as Iger said the original film had crossed 1 billion streams on Disney+ and was the most streamed movie on any platform in the U.S. for 2023.
