LEGO’s December Store Calendar is now available online, and with it comes a very welcomed surprise. As it seems, LEGO will be releasing building sets in celebration of Disney’s first Polynesian princess in the film, Moana. Tagged as LEGO Disney Moana on the High Seas (41150), the set consists of a mini-doll version of Moana, Maui in his big-fig form, Moana’s pet chicken HeiHei, and a raft. Here’s a look at LEGO’s December Store Calendar, followed by a closer look at the image of the set.
It’s interesting to note that popular fan-made LEGO database, Brickset.com, has listed another LEGO Disney Moana Set named as Moana’s Island Adventure (41149). We can only surmise that since it is tagged as a ‘house’ this may probably refer to Moana’s island home village where we can see some of her relatives like Gramma Tala, and her parents Tui and Sina. I hope that LEGO has more sets slated for Disney’s Moana since the film itself has plenty of interesting scenes that will be pretty cool rendered in LEGO bricks – imagine a band of crazy, coconut-armored Kakamora in their colorful minifig versions aboard their pirate ship. Well, we can always hope.
Funko has similarly joined in the high seas adventure with their latest bobble head offerings of Moana, Maui and even young baby Moana. Wildcard Toys have these vinyl collectibles on pre order – just click on the links below to head over to their pre-order page, or click on the images for a better look.

Discovering the unchartered islands of the South Pacific world of Oceania is the final frontier for the bravest sailors more than three thousand years ago. However, for some unknown reason the voyages stopped, leaving a trail of unanswered questions. For a millennium, no one knows exactly why the expeditions stopped.
Then an adventurous teenager braved to answer the call of the ocean and embark on a daring mission not just to get answers, but to save her people as well. During her journey of the fabled islands, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. The two sailed across the open seas in an edge-of-your seat adventure, facing various oddities. towering monsters, unbelievable underworlds beneath the ocean, and pushing through insurmountable odds. Moana soon realizes that her destiny led her not just to fulfil her ancestors’ ancient quest but also into a journey of self-discovery and revelation.
Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”) and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
