“She was the most down to earth regular easygoing girl you could ever meet. She’s super funny, she’s super super funny. She keeps catching me singing and she thinks i can really sing but i don’t think i have that good of a voice, not like she does.”
John Musker: This particular voice is the voice of Auli’i Cravalho’s mother, Puanani. She’s actually doing the voice here. John Lasseter was big on, “Let’s give her a cameo in the movie if we can somewhere.” And we had her in a few different spots. Ultimately, we wound up on this spot, so when she says, “She’s doing great!” which she’s about to say, there’s a meta-aspect to that. Yeah, see, she’s talking about her own daughter.
Ron Clements: Yeah, “My daughter, I’m very proud of her.”
