Meet Moana’s Brothers You Didn’t Know She Had

We all know that movies change dramatically from concept to the final product on the screen. One of the pieces that got cut from Moana was a canoe race with her six brothers. When the story evolved to have her less proficient at sailing, the scene and her brothers “sailed away.” Pun courtesy of director John Musker — watch him along with fellow director Ron Clements and this deleted scene:

This scene is one of seven deleted scenes included in the Digital HD and Blu-Ray/DVD release. It will also include a cut Lin-Manuel Miranda song (and we never get enough of those) called “Warrior Face,” and the shorts “Gone Fishing,” and “Inner Workings,” as well as music videos, making-of featurettes, director’s commentary, and a guide to the film’s Easter eggs.

Moana will be released in Digital HD on Tuesday, February 21. The Blu-Ray/DVD hits shelves on March 7.
