Disney just found their new Princess Moana after months of casting.
However, before telling 14-year-old Auli'i Cravalho she just landed the role of her young life, the director and casting team decided to play a funny prank.
Cravalho heard about the audition for the film, but initially thought, "No way," as she says in the video below. In fact, she was the last girl casting director Rachel Sutton even saw, on the last day of casting.
While it may have seemed like a long shot for this native Hawaiian, Auli'i decided to go for it.
After her first official audition at the Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, CA, she got a callback to do more ad libs. During the final audition, director Ron Clements says to her "Can you be happier, still?"
Soon, that wouldn't be a problem at all.
