The accolades keep ringing in for Taika Waititi's work as Disney's Moana is up for 2 Golde Globe nominations today. It's been nominated for best animated motion picture and best original song for a motion picture.
Oscar-nominated film-maker, New Zealander Taika Waititi, is behind the script about a Polynesian princess called Moana. The film follows Moana's quest as she sails the Pacific Ocean in search of a fabled island, with help from demigod Maui. Maui is voiced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and 16-year-old Auli'i Cravalho voices Moana. Waititi has been behind some of New Zealand's most successful films including 2010's Boy and 2014's vampire hit What We Do In The Shadows.
