HAPPY 2014 EVERYONE!
First doodle/concept piece of the year is a nod to the future—Disney’s future, that is. Later in 2013 Disney announced that they will be releasing “Moana” in 2018. 
EDIT: It’s been pointed out that my description below was incorrect. Sorry about that. Thanks for letting me know! :)
Based off of the existing art from Disney, Moana set within the Maori culture.. There’s only been one piece of official artwork released for the film featuring Moana (which I bet they will retitle in the future), but here’s my take on her.
I researched more into Maori traditional clothing—most of the fanart I’ve seen are more Hawaiian in look. One thing I’m super excited about are the tattoos—and Pocahontas is the only Disney Princess with a tattoo! Maori women have tattoos on their chins—something I would really like Disney to show with Moana! 
Talk about excited!
