  7. Austin Martin

    Hello! My name is Austin Martin. I am 22 years old and thought I would give this a try. I would like to try out for a role in this or any Disney/Pixar movie. I have a bit of experience with acting but not a lot. I did some school musicals in high school, but other than that I haven’t been able to do much of anything due to my current job status. I am from a small farm in Nebraska. It has been a dream to be able to voice act for a Disney or Pixar film even if it is for a small role or third party. If I am able to get into this, the only thing I would like in return is to get my name out and about in order to get more offers later on. If you have any questions, any thoughts or any helpful advice/tips it would be much appreciated. I also have had experience from doing short films with my neighbors and continue doing so with them. If you are interested in seeing any of them, just reply to me and I can get you steering in the right direction.

  9. Isabelle Louis

    Hi, I am Isabelle. I am 12 years old and I have loved acting and singing. I haven’t yet been in a movie or video game but I am hoping I could find a role here. I have loved voice acting and I love to play with my seven year old sister and she wants me to be the bad guys. And, so I do but each one has a different voice and that is sort of my practicing. I am going into 7th grade but when I was in 6th grade, I was in a school musical, “The Lion King” and when I auditioned for it, not everyone got in. Thankfully, I was one of the lead roles, I was Mufasa! Even I was a girl I still had to use my “bad guy low voice. I also had a solo and I had to sing that in a lower voice too. It was such a big hit and I had so much fun doing it. So, since my sister is 7, I have seen every princess movie ever made! I feel like if I can get the part, my sister would be so proud! I turn 13 in September so if you want a 13 year old, you can have that. Thanks!! And I can’t wait to hear what you say!

  10. Kolbi

    Hi! My name is Kolbi and I am 16 years old and I am interested in being the voice of Moana. I LOVE acting and I think that it is my God given talent. My voice is a little on the mature side, in other words, I may sound like a grown woman if you guys were to hear it, lol. On the other hand, I took theater/drama during my 7th grade year and my sophomore year in highschool, going into my junior year, and so far, I love it! However, I am not the best singer, so if you guys are looking for a singer as well, then I am not your girl. If not, then feel free to keep reading! I think that I will be a good voice for Moana because I have that bubbly personality and can change my tone of voice whenever it is needed. I can sound sad, angry, happy, energetic, you name it! Oh, and I can also force tears! I have been trying to get into the acting industry ever since I found my
    love for acting when I was in the second grade after participating in a play that I performed for my school. After that play, I realized what my talents were and I would love to display them to the rest of the world! Whether I become the voice of Moana or not, good luck to anyone else who is interested and willing to be the voice of Moana and best of luck to you all finding that special person! XOXO

    Dear Reader,
    My name is Kiara Morten and I am 13 going to be 14 in August and Love acting. I do not have much experience but I have enjoyed what I have done. My mother is always telling me to try new things and go out of my comfort zone and that is why I am here. I think it would be a huge thing to play the voice of a character. Not only would that be cool but to be playing the voice of a character in a movie Dwayne Johnson is starring in! I think this would be a great way to start off my career. Thank you for taking the time to read this comment. Please keep me in mind. Thank you!

  13. Anjelique-Hope

    “Wind in the distance is louder than usual, something must be coming here and it has everyone in a rage. But not me I’ve heard this voice before the same roar came through my window I felt it in my hair, I’m ready for it is only war cry from life and I’m ready to live.” I wrote the first thing that came to mind and this was it, lol I know it seems a bit weird but any time I feel a opportunity brewing it’s like the wind, but I’m ready to blow you away and put forth the strength and loyalty I poses. I’m maybe very young but I’m cunning and dedicated.

  16. Julie Tench

    Hello, My name is Julie Tench and Disney has always been a huge part of mine and my family’s life. I’ve been told that I have a voice that would be great for Disney or Broadway which makes me happy for either one. I have not had the fancy acting and vocal school that many talented people have had but I feel that some of the greatest voices are not always from the schooling they have had but their personality and passion that they have for Disney. Thats what makes the characters so great!

  22. Hend

    Hi everybody,
    My name is Hend Assaf and I’m from Canada.
    I’m a grade 11 student (15 years old) who is passionate about acting in anyway possible since I was a kid. I’m born Canadian but originally from Middle Eastern Asia. I would want acting to be a big part of my life and would leave no room to disappoint in any show/film/voice over/etc where I could act. I’ve been told to be very well at imitating, creating different characters and/or personalities when acting. I also created a play for a spring concert once. I take fencing lessons but my main hobby that most people believe I’m very good at is art.
    I wish the best of luck to anyone auditioning and hope the film turns out great with all the talent.

  30. gladymar

    Hi my name in Gladymar Gamboa I am currently 16 years old and I live in Florida. I have not been acting for long but throughout the little time that I have been acting I have accomplished many things. The past year I lived in North Dakota where I played one of the leads in “The Actors Nightmare” for our state drama competition from which out of the hundreds of students there I took part of the 22 who got superior actors. And as a whole our one act show took 2nd place. I was also in a speech team from which I did very well in. I would love to play the part of Moana in this upcoming Disney production.

  31. Julia Bonneau

    Hi, my name is Julia Bonneau and I am 15 years old. I have grown up loving to act and took an interest in voice acting in middle school. I have never been in a video game or movie or anything like that, but I have never really tried before. Now, this year, I am taking an initiative and trying all over the place. I know this is a big part for my first “official” voice acting opportunity, but everything is worth a shot. I live in Niles, Ohio and if you would like to hear me read a few lines I would be more than glad to help out with this movie and fill out one of many dreams. This is definitely one of the bigger ones, I would have to say my inspiration was from the Uncharted Series. I would love to be a part of this project and I would do it totally free as well! 🙂

  33. Brittany McDonough

    My name is Brittany McDonough, i have been interested in acting and voice over rolls since i was little. I love acting and singing and talking in different voices. Though it may seem odd that a 22 year old like myself can sound like an 8 year old, it is true. I have always been into pulling pranks on my family and friends, whether its calling them in my “baby voice” and making up some kind of funny conversation, or acting like something is wrong, and being able to make myself cry to be more realistic. When i was little i was big into plays at school. Now growing up still, i would love to be in a movie acting, or doing voice over for cartoon characters. It would be such an honor. I know that i could do it.

  59. Maria Miles

    Hello Casting Directors,

    My name is Maria Miles and I just turned 16. I’m a dramatic and outgoing person, so therefore I don’t believe there is a role I can’t handle. I’m currently playing a teen Princess named Mora in a school play and this animation is about a teen named Moana. But I strongly know this role is for me. Because what better person could there be, for an adventurous teenage girl role than me? You creating this film of a girl that resembles me I would wonder if this is my dream come true.

    Thank You, for the opportunity.

    Hi my name is Christina Musilli,
    I would absolutely love to get a chance to audition for this movie. I have always wanted to be a Disney Princess and Moana would be the perfect person for me. I feel she is carefree and fun, and that is the way I am. I love making people laugh and feel that Moana is my type of girl. I have a cheerful and smooth voice that is not annoying. I am good at using my voice to sound, exhausted, happy, sad and other emotions. I am twelve years old, and if I did get the part it would mean a lot to me as well as my family who has always encouraged my dream of acting. If you have picked a person for Moana, I would be grateful to get a different part in the movie!! Please consider me.
    Thank you!! I hope to hear from you soon.
