Dwayne Johnson Joins Disney Movie As Demi-God
WWE and Fast & Furious star to voice Hawaiian deity in new movie...
He's already something of a deity to wrestling fans and has played a divine hero on the big screen in this year's Hercules.
The 42-year-old hunk will voice Maui, a demi-god from Polynesian mythology, who assists a 14-year-old girl called Moana in her voyage to find a fabled island in the South Pacific.
Director John Musker said recently: "Moana is indomitable, passionate and a dreamer with a unique connection to the ocean itself.
"She's the kind of character we all root for, and we can't wait to introduce her to audiences."
The movie is set for release in late 2016.
