I’m the first to admit that there are some things Moana is definitely not. Like all of the Disney movies, her story has some racial undertones and in some places she is very racially ambiguous. If you look at her character, you’ll see her as a mixed-race person, but not the most interesting thing. In this moment, I’m not sure if she is a Samoan or not. But in general, she is. I think she is, but we’ll have to wait to see.
One last thing.

As an actor, you know that’s a big deal. You have to have something different to stand out, because I think people say, well, you’re a white lady, therefore you’re more interesting. I think, well, you’re a woman and you have a different voice and it’s kind of odd that that would be such a dominant point of identity for women. It’s actually quite interesting that we’ve gotten to this point in society, where it’s only been really after World War II that women have had to deal with issues that men would have had to deal with at some point in their
