They could just get Auli’i Cravalho to play Moana again as well. Either her or Emma Stone.

I imagine this love-action “re-imagining” is going to focus on Maui over Moana anyway.

Has this ever happened before where the animated voice becomes the real-time character?

This one actually makes sense and especially because The Rock is going to be involved. It’s just a little weird given that the animated film isn’t very old yet.

Oh the casting is perfection in both the animated and live-action, but has it ever happened before?

I don't think I can remember a live action remake coming soon enough after an animated movie where the actors would still be appropriate. Certainly there have been like animated series that use the same voice actors as a live action movie. And the new Scott Pilgrim announcement is basically this but in reverse.

I read a comment on another site that said a live action remake isn't necessary, but how about a live action sequel instead?

I mean technically they were both animated, but James Earl Jones reprised his role as Mufasa in the "live action" Lion King.

Thomas Kail, the Tony Award-winning director of Broadway’s Hamilton, has been tapped to direct Disney’s live-action take on the studio’s 2016 animated musical sensation Moana.
