Today we're interviewing Cerise Calixte. Seen for the first time in the reality TV program "The Voice", Cerise had never imagined that she could one day work for Disney, whose films she's admired forever. But here she is now lending her voice to the new princess Moana who leaves to save her people whose island is dying. "Moana" will be out in theaters next Wednesday. - How were you chosen to be Moana's French voice? - I'd been spending a lot of time in dubbing studios for a few months, when I heard about this movie. I auditioned, but I didn't know for which character. When I was told that I'd got the main part, I had to pinch myself to believe it! Up until the end, I was scared they'd made a mistake!

Getting that for you now...
