Podcast: Ron Clements & John Musker (‘Moana’)

// Featured, Interviews


For our sixty-third episode of the Skwigly Animation Podcast we hear from directorial duo Ron Clements and John Musker – whose prior credits include the much-loved Disney features The Great Mouse Detective (1986), The Little Mermaid (1989), Aladdin (1992) and Hercules (1997), as well as the more recent 2D animation revival film The Princess and the Frog (2009) – about their latest film Moana, out now in cinemas. Starring newcomer Auli’i Cravalho in the title role with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson as her demigod companion Maui and Alan Tudyk as her intellectually-challenged rooster Heihei, the film also boasts a score by Mark Mancina in collaboration with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Opetaia Foa’i as well as implementing a number of fantastic sequences by Disney legend Eric Goldberg in the animation of Maui’s tattoos.

Also discussed in this episode: Animation UK’s recent announcement at 10 Downing Street, highlights from the London International Animation Festival, the continued success of Claude Barras’s My Life as a Courgette/Zucchini, incurring the wrath of Hayao Miyazaki and the bad influence of a certain Quoanna Jinn.
