One of the biggest grossing movies over the last year is Disney’s animated film Moana and it now has an amazing Caps connection.
The film, which Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson contributed his voice to, has grossed over $587 million worldwide, and received two Academy Award nominations for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song (“How Far I’ll Go”).
The lead character Moana was voiced by 16-year-old newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, a native of Kohala, Hawaii. According to Disney, Cravalho, who was in her freshman year of high school, was the last person to audition out of hundreds of actresses. On February 28, Cravalho, wearing a stunning red dress, performed the film’s signature song at the Oscars along with Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Now that I’m done that context, here’s where I blow your mind. Cravalho owns a Capitals shirsey of fourth-line center Jay Beagle.
