With a live action Moana remake announced - Could "Moana Land" be coming to Animal Kingdom?

At today's 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that a Moana live action remake is in the works, could this mean we will finally see the Moana Land come to life at Disney's Animal Kingdom?

Should we get excited??

Rewind to the D23 Expo last year, when Disney revealed that Moana is a “potential expansion” opportunity and “early concept exploration” for Dinoland USA at Animal Kingdom.

The Animal Kingdom expansion news was announced during the “A Boundless Future: Disney Parks, Experiences and Products” presentation at D23 Expo 2022.

Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro offered a sneak peek at concept art for the future in addition and teased what was to come in a few years.

This information, linked to the remake of Moana, and Walt Disney World fans should be excited that this is a real possibility!

The concept art appears to show two attractions, with the main ride being a log flume.

In the concept art, you can see boats going down a modest drop and then circling around Moana’s wa’a kaulua outrigger canoe before heading under waterfalls and into a show building.

Looking at the concept art, we can also see that one of the attractions would be a spinner ride featuring Moana sails.

We really hope this happens, as it would be a much more fitting land than Chester and Hester’s Dino-Rama!
