At the age of 18, Auli’I Cravahlo has one of the most recognizable voices on the planet.

Known to Disney fans around the world as the voice of the title character in the film “Moana,” Auli’i showcased both inner strength and vulnerability of the modern Disney princess – qualities she also brought to her narration of the 2018 “Candlelight Processional,” part of the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays.

We caught up with Auli’i before her second night of performances at Epcot where she told us what the “Candlelight Processional” means to her.

And she had a special guest visitor as well.
