Disney on Ice's 'Moana' segment set to be performed in Te Reo Māori in New Zealand

Headlines 01/04/2019

The next Disney on Ice production coming to New Zealand will feature a Moanasegment that for some shows will be presented in te reo Māori.

In August, Disney On Ice celebrates Mickey and Friends heads to Auckland's Spark Arena, Hamilton's Claudelands Arena and Christchurch's Horncastle Arena.

Moana isn't the only Disney icon to skate on ice in the show - fans can expect to see characters like Mickey Mouse, Elsa from Frozen, Dory, along with Inside Out and Toy Story pals at the event, too.

"Each section of the show was carefully selected to immerse families in an array of stories that they have grown to know and love," says Nicole Feld of Disney on Ice.

"Because of its cultural significance in the Pacific and how beloved the character is here, this year, we are particularly delighted to bring the story of Moana to life for New Zealand audiences in te reo Māori for one performance in each city."

The shows featuring te reo Māori will take place at 5:30pm on Sunday in each of the three cities.

Tickets went on sale on Monday morning.
