The animation studio have been searching for an appropriate child to voice their latest star - Moana.

People magazine reported that before giving the teenager the life changing news they decided to play a practical joke on her.

After performing for film bosses during her initial audition Auli'i didn't hear back from the casting agents for several weeks.

She was then thrilled to receive an email from Disney, asking her to attend a call-back and to perform 'more ad-libs'.

While there the casting directors persisted in teasing the budding star, asking her to 'act even happier' when delivering her lines.

Finally they deliver the all-important news, and made the little girl's dreams come true.

Her reaction is just hilarious.

As soon as the news had sunk in Auli'i phoned her mother and excitedly told her she had landed the coveted role.
