Disney Announces Casting Call for children roles in Live-Action 'Moana'

Here's all the details for the Disney open casting for Moana.

Disney has announced an online casting call for various children's roles in the live-action adaptation of 'Moana'.

It's so exciting to know that some Kiwi actors are already part of the movie, but we'd also love to see some of our tamariki featured as well.

It's free to apply and there's no acting experience required. 

The daily role starts from approximately NZD $1956.29 - $2151.92 and weekly rates are NZD $6790-$7470 - how goooood!

For these younger version of Moana roles, they're looking for actors that can play younger version of 17-year-old Samoan Australian actor Catherine who's been selected to play the lead role.

Fale kids (1 to 3) and a village kid: Actors to play characters that are any gender, 4 to 6, Pacfiic Islander. Toddlers who are terrified by Gramma Tala's stories of demigods and demons.
