What are the powers behind The Rock’s demi-god powers?

Maui is a great demi-god and wielder of a fish hook which grants him the power to slow time, release islands from the watery depths of the ocean and battle fierce leviathans of the sea.

The Plot Line:

The animated movie is set in ancient Oceania and follows the adventures of a young girl with an exceptional talent for navigation. Princess Moana Waialiki, the sole daughter of a chief, is determined to use her skills to uncover an island that legend has recorded as lost forever. As tricky as her quest may be, luckily she has the help of Maui whom she has admired for most of her short life. But just how far do his powers really extend?

The movie has been directed by Oscar nominated duo Ron Clements and John Musker (‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Hercules’) who co-wrote the script alongside Jared Bush (‘Zootopia’), Pamela Ribon (‘Bears’) and Taika Waititi (‘What We Do in the Shadows’).

Moana is being portrayed by newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, while also featuring in the cast are Alan Tudyk (‘Trumbo’) and the Tony-nominated star of ‘Hamilton’ Phillipa Soo, who will play a villager on her island Motunui.

Speaking of ‘Hamilton’, the genius behind the musical itself, Lin-Manuel Miranda, is also involved with the movie as co-writer and composer for the music alongside Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina.
