How Far I'll Go (Live)
Auli'i Cravalho feat Lin-Manuel Miranda
How Far I'll Go (Live)
Before she sings her solo, shall I set the scene?
Picture a young warrior, not even seventeen
She dreams of open seas, she's full of hope and sees
A future where she sets her sail and rope against the open breeze
She doesn't know that she's a voyaging descendant
Impatient, independent, heart of nature in that pendant
The ocean's at her feet: she opens her eyes to find
Her mind is on her island but her eye's on the horizon line...
Moana Had Brothers?! Meet 'em in Exclusive Deleted Scene From Disney's Animated Blockbuster

How far did Moana go from the initial drawing-board version? Fans who snapped up $565 million worth of tickets worldwide might not recognize the story of the plucky teen wayfarer as originally conceived.

With the Oscar-contending animated hit heading home (the Digital HD version arrives Tuesday while the Blu-ray/DVD hits shelves on March 7), Yahoo Movies has an exclusive deleted scene (watch it above) that shows how the title heroine evolved as a character.

As they set up the clip, directors Ron Clements (the one with the beard) and John Musker reveal where it originally had fit in the film.

“This is a very early scene in the movie, where Moana had six older brothers,” says Clements, “and this was a showcase for Moana’s sailing proficiencies and how she really kind of outdoes her brothers.”

“We lost her brothers and wanted to make her less proficient when she was sailing so this scene went away,” adds Musker. “But it’s a fun scene.”

“The scene went away as did her six older brothers,” says Clements. “Somehow she became an only child and probably is much happier as an only child.”

The “Lost Brothers” deleted scene is one of seven included on the home edition, along with a Lin-Manuel Miranda tune, “Warrior Face,” that also wound up on the cutting-room floor.

As Musker and Clements explained earlier to Yahoo Movies, they ultimately decided the film is about Moana’s journey of self-discovery and empowerment and the story was streamlined accordingly. For example, the directors said an early iteration of the story had Maui performing more heroics in the climactic battle, but, after discussing with some female coworkers, the filmmakers realized Moana didn’t need Maui’s help in defeating the vengeful goddess Te Kā. Likewise, the subplot with her battling a half-dozen brothers for the attention of their chieftain father felt superfluous.

Disney is notorious for its intense story-vetting process, with many films undergoing radical changes, and Moana is no exception. Musker and Clements, whose joint credits include Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and The Princess and the Frog, told us earlier that the heroine’s breakout sidekick, the daft rooster Heihei, was almost excised from the film because they had trouble figuring out how best to organically fit him in the story.

In addition to the excised scenes and song, the Digital HD and Blu-ray versions of Moana will include the Maui-Moana short “Gone Fishing,” the theatrical short “Inner Workings,” music videos, making-of featurettes, director’s commentary, and a guide to the film’s Easter eggs.

GLAAD has announced the list of nominees for the 28th annual GLAAD Media Awards, honoring Moonlight, Supergirl, The Handmaiden, Frank Ocean, and more.

The annual awards honor “fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the LGBTQ community” in categories like film, TV, comics, music, and journalism. This year’s list covers 156 individual nominees, including 115 nominees in English and 41 in Spanish.

Moonlight and Star Trek Beyond were the only two films to make the cut in the wide release category, the lowest number of nominees since 2003. The TV categories, on the other hand, are much more robust, including series like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Supergirl, Transparent, Modern Family, The OA, Orphan Black, and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. The awards also honored individual episodes in series without a regular LGBTQ character, like “San Junipero” from Black Mirror.

In the music category, Against Me!, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Frank Ocean, and Sia all scored nominations.

The GLAAD Media Awards ceremonies will be held April 1 in Los Angeles and May 6 in New York. See all the film, TV, comic, and music nominees below.

Lin-Manuel Miranda on His Oscar-Nominated 'Moana' Song: 'You Start by Thinking, Don’t Write "Let It Go"'

It’s something that really sets Moana apart from other heroines: She finds herself without running away from her home and culture. In some ways it seems like a bolder choice.

I had a similar thing when I was working on [Miranda’s first Broadway musical] In the Heights. I got a lot of notes from producers, who didn’t end up being involved, being like, “You gotta give Nina stakes! What if she got pregnant at school? What if her boyfriend beat her?”

Oh my God!

Believe me, that’s not the worst of the notes I got. Not from our actual producers, but from people who would see the show in process. And what we were trying to accomplish was so much more subtle, which was, this is a young woman who’s been built up to be the star of her neighborhood all her life, and then she goes to a place where everyone’s the star of their neighborhood. And so she sort of comes home with her tail between her legs. And we fought for that. Even though it was more subtle than a more soap-ish plot line, I can’t tell you how many young Latina and Latino men and women have come up to me saying, “I was the first in my family to go to college, and Nina spoke to me.” Because we reached for the more subtle storyline, the more specific storyline than “some dramatic event happened and I couldn’t hack it.”
