To Be Close To You

Her bags fall from the grasp of her cold fingertips as soon as she closes the door to their apartment, sinking down, not just from exhaustion, but from the utmost heaviness of her heart in that moment.

She pictures him smiling, the sunlight caught in the edges of his eyes, his hair a flurry of light chestnut, and his freckles that decorate his face like stars in the sky.

She groans, resting her head on the top of her knees, trying to hide from the reality that she wanted nothing more in this moment than to be close to him. To be entangled in his arms and his scent and his voice-

But he just thinks of her as a friend. 

Don’t - Don’t, get her wrong, being his friend is beyond lovely, but sometimes the fleeting curve of his lips makes her heart ache, and the way he runs his freckled fingers through his hair when he gets nervous, causes her to stare a little longer than a friend would.

Even when they were but centimeters apart, there were miles - worlds, even - between them.

Disney’s teenage princesses have always been voiced by adult women. Until now.

Auli’i Cravalho is a teenage newcomer who provides Moana’s speaking and singing voice for Disney’s latest hit. Her casting was announced in October of 2015 via hashtag-bedecked Instagram post from her then-future costar (and vocal Moana cheerleader) Dwayne Johnson. 

Johnson’s post hyped the then-14-year-old Carvalho’s unlikely discovery, claiming she didn’t even audition for the role because she “didn’t think she was good enough,” but was discovered by casting agents when she won a local singing competition.

From her unlikely discovery story to Moana’s successful box-office bow, Cravalho’s casting has surely been a life-changing event for her — but it’s also somewhat extraordinary in the grand scheme of Disney princess casting, since it’s so rare for a complete unknown to be crowned a Disney Princess these days.

The last three official princesses to join the Disney Princess lineup — The Princess and the Frog’s Tiana, Tangled’s Rapunzel, and Brave’s Merida — were all voiced by established actresses: Anika Noni Rose, Mandy Moore, and Kelly Macdonald, respectively. (Frozen’s Anna, voiced by Kristen Bell, has not officially joined the Disney princess lineup yet — she’s apparently still one of the “Disney princesses in waiting,” whatever that means.)

Moana is also the first Disney princess of Pacific Islander descent, and Cravalho, a Hawaii native, reflects that. She’ll be just the fourth actress of color to voice a Disney princess, the first since Rose played Tiana in 2009’s The Princess and the Frog.

((Alright I’m curious.  Just what do you think that first spell Newt used on Jacob was, in the bank?  ‘Accio Muggle’?  He would have been dogpiled by everyone in range.  How in the world do you Accio ‘that dude over there’?  And it’s supposed to be very difficult to summon living things, so did he just summon his clothes and hope the muggle wearing them would come along for the ride?  Because that seems awkward on many levels.

And yes, it could have been the egg!  But you’d think it would fly out of his hand, if that was the case.  Could be though!))
