Now you may not recognise John Musker or Ron Clements walking down the street, but the pair have been behind many a fond childhood memory, writing and directing both Aladdin and The Little Mermaid for Disney. The pair return with their latest endeavour, peering into Polynesian culture in Moana, and we had the pleasure to sit down with them both to discuss their most recent project.

We spoke about how this project came to fruition and what inspired this particular narrative, while they also comment on their joyous collaboration with Dwayne Johnson, who takes a starring turn in this film – and why they felt it necessary to allow the actor to bring his own comic sensibilities and brand to the role at hand.

Moana is released on December 2nd. You can read our review of the film here.
