Hands up if you saw Disney's Moana last November—we did! A huge amount of talent and stars went into its creation, and the payoff was a heartwarming film that garnered not one, but two Oscars nominations.
And one of those stars has been shining especially strong since: Auli'i Cravalho, the actress behind the movie's headstrong, compassionate main character.
A sensational debut
Before Moana, Cravalho was a high school student. Now, she's a high school student with thousands of fans around the world who can't wait to see what she does next.
Remember how we mentioned the Oscars earlier? Auli'i was invited to the Oscars stage to perform one of her songs from the movie, and she did great (despite being bonked on the head with a flag pole!). Her professionalism, charisma, and incredible singing at the Oscars sealed it: Auli'i Cravalho was officially a star.
So what's next for this talented teen? Rumours have been swirling for weeks, and it's now confirmed that she's been cast in a new TV show called Drama High. We're betting the show, which centers on a high school drama department, will give Auli'i tons of opportunities to shine.
Congrats on your success, Auli'i—we can't wait to see how far you'll go!
