Moana Translation in the US national news

NBC news covers the Hawaiian translation of Disney’s Moana. Read an excerpt from the full article.

The Hawaiian language version of the 2016 Disney film “Moana” will be given for free to every accredited school in Hawaii as a gift just in time for the holiday season.

Chris Lee, the director and founder of the University of Hawaii’s Academy for Creative Media (ACM) , said ACM will be providing free copies of the DVD to schools, from pre-K to college level. ACM had announced last year it would produce the Hawaiian language version of the Oscar-nominated film in hopes it could be used as an educational tool.
