Moana‘s Deleted Scene Shows Us The Brothers She Almost Had

Now that the Oscars are coming up, it really is a excellent time to re-watch some of the very best films of the year — like Moana, which is nominated for Animated Feature Film and Original Song, thanks to “How Far I will Go.”

It’s a wonderful time to discover much more about these films, too, specially in Moana‘s case. Discarded parts of the story are creating their way to the DVD version, so now there’s a chance for viewers to meet Moana’s brothers in this deleted clip.

In Moana‘s final cut, our heroine is an only youngster, but Disney was into the concept of Moana coming from a enormous family members — with six older brothers, to be exact. In this scene, Moana is determined to beat all six of the boys in a race that has her sail boat competing with their canoes.

Stubborn determination is — or was, prior to her bros got scrubbed from the movie — a family members trait, so it seems.


Who Are The Duffer Brothers? &#039Stranger Things&#039 Creators On Netflix&#039s Summer season Hit

Netflix’s surprise summer season Tv hit, Stranger Things, is full of scares and 1980s nostalgia. NPR’s Ari Shapiro talks to Matt and Ross Duffer, the comparatively unknown brothers behind the show.



The surprise Television hit of the summer is a show that looks like it could have been produced 30 years ago.


SHAPIRO: “Stranger Things” is a suspense horror show on Netflix. It is set in 1983 about a modest town exactly where a boy goes missing 1 night.


DAVID HARBOUR: (As Jim Hopper) Ninety-nine out of one hundred instances – kid goes missing, the kid is with a parent or a relative.

WINONA RYDER: (As Joyce Byers) Nicely, what about the other time?

SHAPIRO: There is a mysterious government lab, a monster and boys riding about town on bikes. If you are hearing echoes of “E.T.” or “Goonies” or any number of other beloved ’80s classics, that is not a coincidence. When the show’s creators Matt and Ross Duffer pitched “Stranger Factors,” they didn’t use a storyboard or a written synopsis. They told me they assembled a trailer made of snippets from ’80s films.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: I feel it was about 30 diverse motion pictures. A lot of them were from the ’80s, but not completely from the ’80s – motion pictures that we reduce together to kind of tell the story of the show. But it was cool because then we – you know, we had, you know, a lot of shots from “E.T.,” but we scored it with, like, John Carpenter synth music.

So I consider it helped us figure out what the show was going to really feel like, and I feel it helped Netflix, you know, and other firms and producers recognize what we wanted to do with the show.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: To us truly this stuff – it didn’t really feel like this hodgepodge. It all felt like a complete when we all put it with each other and we put the music more than it. And I think the cause is that all these, you know, the Stephen King stuff, the John Carpenter stuff, the Spielberg stuff is all just about these little towns and these quite ordinary folks.

SHAPIRO: Matt and Ross Duffer are twins. They have been born in 1984, a year right after the show was set. “Stranger Factors” is the very first show they’ve ever created. And since they did not know any much better, they broke a lot of guidelines, like casting youngsters as the leads. In the very first episode, 4 boys played Dungeons &amp Dragons in their parent’s basement, a scene not all that various from the Duffer’s personal childhood.


UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #1: (As character) A shadow grows on the wall behind you, swallowing you in darkness. It is practically here.

UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #two: (As character) What is it?

UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #three: (As character) What if it’s the Demogorgon?

UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #four: (As character) Oh, jeez, if it’s the Demogorgon.

UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #1: (As character) It’s not the Demogorgon. An army of difficulty that is charged into the chamber.

UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #3: (As character) Troglodytes?

UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR #1: (As character) Told you.


SHAPIRO: Quite soon a new girl appears, the weirdo in the woods. She’s got a shaved head and uncanny powers. Also, she barely talks. The Duffer brothers cast an eerily intense 11-year-old to play her named Millie Bobby Brown.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: What was interesting is by the finish of this shoot, this 11-year-old girl – I’m going up to her and going properly, how do you feel, what do you want to be doing? – you know, like I was treating her like she’s, like, a 41-year-old Shakespearean actor.


UNIDENTIFIED MAN #2: Well, and also because she’s very – which is something else that most child actors don’t have – she’s extremely aware of the camera.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: But at the exact same time, she’s like a little…

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: She’s nonetheless 11.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: She’s nonetheless 11.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: A single day she showed up on set and she’s just covered head to toe in glitter. And she’s like I don’t know exactly where this glitter came from.

SHAPIRO: (Laughter).

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: And it’s like I am not getting this dilemma with any of my adult actors covered in glitter.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: I mean, that – I mean, yeah that was a genuine deal. It was like 40 – that was a 45-minute delay. That is a – that was…

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: It really is quite – I do not know if you have attempted to get glitter off a person, but it is really difficult. And yeah, so we fell behind.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: So she’s nonetheless a child.


SHAPIRO: (Laughter) It genuinely delayed your production schedule since she came in covered in glitter?


UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: Yeah, 45 minutes in the morning, which is a – and you actually have a restricted quantity of time with little ones. So as funny as it is to talk about now, it was not funny.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #2: No. We’re like why are you sparkling? You’re, like, in “Twilight.”

SHAPIRO: (Laughter).

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: Yeah, you are not a vampire in “Twilight.” You know, what’s going on?

SHAPIRO: The obsession with this show is a lot more intense than I believe something I have ever observed. What was your, oh, my God, what have we done here moment?

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: You know, the 1st issue that genuinely messed me up was the – there was the – Stephen King tweeted about it.


UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: And then I was like what? I mean, that to me was – due to the fact that didn’t – no one particular else had tweeted truly at that point. And, like – and he – you know, he naturally is 1 of our idols and was such a huge inspiration for us and an influence on this show, and that sort of messed me up. I – you just do not believe about it reaching these people. Yeah, it was insane. It was insane. I mean…

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: I imply, even beginning Friday morning, you know, simply because the point is released, you know, at midnight.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: Individuals had completed the show.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: So many individuals had currently finished and have been tweeting all these great items about it. And then it just kept – via word of mouth, it just began to grow far more and much more and much more. And so even on Twitter what begins as a, you know, a handful of tweets turns into far more and more and far more and it just kept increasing. And then – you know, and then you commence seeing all this fan art on the web.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: The fan art.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: And amazing fan art and that is when we began realizing that – you know, and all this love for Barb, of course. And that’s when we…

SHAPIRO: Oh, I want to talk about Barb. Here’s the issue about Barb, she’s a extremely minor character on the show. A nerdy teenager, the fairly girl’s ideal friend on the sidelines.


SHANNON PURSER: (As Barbara Holland) Nance, seriously he invited you to his residence. His parents are not house. Come on, you are not this stupid.

NATALIA DYER: (As Nancy Wheeler) Tommy…

SHAPIRO: And yet when I asked on Twitter what people wanted to know about “Stranger Factors,” I virtually drowned in a tsunami of fervor for Barb.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: For us, it’s easy to relate to her since high college was a – it was terrible for us. And I know it was for a lot of folks, appropriate? You either enjoy it or hate it, and we hated it. And so I feel there’s a lot of men and women that really feel like they had been on the outside looking in, like Barb.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: I feel the other reason men and women genuinely connect to her is due to the fact no 1 casts any individual like her. I mean, she looks like somebody you might genuinely go to college with.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #2: Yeah, our teens have, like, acne and it’s like – it was, like, wonderful. I’m glad we didn’t – to me it really is important to attempt to maintain that and make it feel as genuine as possible.

SHAPIRO: To some folks, the show apparently felt a tiny too actual. In “Stranger Factors,” a Department of Energy facility gets up to some nefarious activities. And a couple of weeks ago, the true Department of Energy decided it necessary to set the record straight.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: I really like that the Department of Energy issued a public statement that they’re not evil. That was like – that’s my preferred thing.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: Out of thousands of scientists, none of them are evil. But it’s, like…

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: I bet there’s 1 evil 1.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: There’s one particular – (laughter) someone in there is evil. In a thousand folks, someone’s not a good guy.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: Someone’s up to no great.


SHAPIRO: That is actually one particular of the bullet points in the DOE’s slightly tongue-in-cheek weblog post, quote, “national laboratory scientists are not evil.” Other headlines from the weblog post consist of, the Power Department does not mess with monsters and the Energy Division does not explore parallel universes.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: And also I enjoy how they pretend like they know how an interdimensional monster functions.

SHAPIRO: In the planet of “Stranger Issues,” Matt and Ross Duffer really do know how an interdimensional monster operates – in excruciating detail. The twins wrote a 30-web page document describing what is actually going on in this planet, with answers that the eight-episode show by no means totally reveals.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #2: We want to try to produce a mythology that has specific roles and a back story, and at least to us we realize. And then again, even if we’re not doling all that out to the audience in this, you know, first season or perhaps in other seasons, we still want to know that we have this solid base, and that we know the answers to it.

So it does not – I do not want – I want the audience to really feel like they’re secure, that we have these answers. And if we’re not providing it to them, we’re not giving it to them for a reason.

SHAPIRO: Matt Duffer and Ross Duffer, thank you so considerably for your time, and congratulations on the massive achievement of “Stranger Items.”

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #1: Oh, thank you so significantly, yeah.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN #two: This was so fun. Thanks for speaking.

Some siblings discover it challenging just to be below the exact same roof, but Mark and Jay Duplass have teamed up to make far more than a dozen films. They’ve lately branched out into tv with their HBO show Togetherness.

Since these brothers get along so effectively, we’ve asked them to take a break from writing, directing, acting and producing to play a game referred to as “Hating you is like hating myself.” 3 queries about brothers who did not see eye to eye.



And now the game exactly where we ask folks who do a lot of fascinating issues to do something dull. It is named Not My Job. If you turned on your Tv recently, specially to premium cable, and you saw a wise, funny, type of sad movie or Television show about folks struggling with household relationships – shows like “Transparent” or “The League” or “Togetherness,” probabilities are you saw a Duplass brother. Jay and Mark Duplass are writers, directors, actors and brothers. And they join us now. Jay and Mark Duplass, welcome to WAIT WAIT… Never Inform ME.


JAY DUPLASS: Thank you.

SAGAL: All correct…

MARK DUPLASS: Is that applause all for us?


SAGAL: It is. It is for you. So let me ask you some thing, how do we tell you apart to commence with?

M. DUPLASS: You don’t.

J. DUPLASS: You do not.

SAGAL: Genuinely? Is this…

M. DUPLASS: We appear extremely diverse, but we have the same exact voice, so you guys are just screwed.


SAGAL: I imply, we have been asking yourself ’cause we had been considering oh, the Duplasses are on the show – like the Duplassey (ph), like Duplasseyi (ph). Do you have a plural to describe you guys?

J. DUPLASS: We have been referred to as the Dupli (ph). That is our preferred approach of plural reference.

SAGAL: All proper, the Dupli.

MAZ JOBRANI: Not the Duplasse (ph)?

M. DUPLASS: It’s got a particular Latin flavor. I think it is ablative plural.

SAGAL: Yeah.


SAGAL: If you have been Jewish, you would be the Duplassim (ph), I guess.

MO ROCCA: Duplassim, yeah.

SAGAL: Yeah, now…

JOBRANI: (Singing) Duplassim, Duplassam, life goes on. La, la, la, la, life goes on.


SAGAL: So you guys generally – it is impossible now to turn on a tv and not see you. So let me ask you this – I mean, everybody knows the Coen brothers and they have specific hallmarks in their films, a type of quirky humor, specific type of themes. How – is there, like, a Duplasse brothers themes or formula that you could describe that holds your operate with each other?

M. DUPLASS: Nicely, we – the other – I guess it was a handful of months ago, we had been approached about undertaking kind of – sort of like a massive action-ey kind of movie. And we said, we would be open to that if you are willing to have your major villain cease in the middle of a auto chase, get out, sit on the sidewalk and talk about his feelings to his mother for ten minutes straight. And they mentioned, I do not consider we make that film. And we mentioned, well, that is what Duplassian is called. That’s what we do.

SAGAL: Yeah, it is like Kubrickian had a particular sort of cold, austere sense to it. But Duplassian indicates men and women fundamentally just becoming inarticulate about their feelings.

M. DUPLASS: And crying a lot.

SAGAL: Crying a lot.

J. DUPLASS: Our autobiography would be “Feelings And The Folks Who Really feel Them.”


SAGAL: “The Duplass Story.”

ROCCA: Could that be a mumblecore superhero?

SAGAL: Oh, yeah, I wanted to ask you about that since I said oh, we’re having the Duplass brothers on the show. And the particular person mentioned oh, you imply the mumblecore pioneers? Due to the fact apparently, some individuals contact your genre of filmmaking mumblecore – folks mumbling their feelings to each and every other more than a period of time.

M. DUPLASS: I imply, when I very first heard that word, I just assumed it was, like, referring to some sort of fairly extreme pornographic trend in the Nordic regions…


M. DUPLASS: …And I do not know how it applies to us.

ROCCA: I believed it referred to the parents in the “Peanuts” cartoons.

M. DUPLASS: Oh, yeah, there you go, yeah…

ROCCA: The way they talk – (imitating “Peanuts” mumbling).

J. DUPLASS: That was the original mumble core.

SAGAL: Yeah. Properly, Jay and Mark Duplass, we have asked you here to play game we’re calling…

KURTIS: Hating You Is Like Hating Myself.

SAGAL: So you guys get along truly well, which is wonderful. In reality, you get along so effectively, it is a small weird. So we believed we’d ask you about pairs of brothers who hate each other. Answer two queries about those and you will win our prize for a single of our listeners — Carl Kasell’s voice on their voicemail, berating his evil brother, Bob Kasell. Bill, who are the Duplass brothers playing for?

KURTIS: Jean Allen of New Orleans, La.

SAGAL: All appropriate, Mark and Jay, he is your initial question. Which of these renowned folks had a feud with their brother? Was it A, Leonardo da Vinci, who was continually being confused with his brother Guillermo da Vinci, who was a residence painter, B, the comedian Gallagher, who ended up suing his personal brother Ron Gallagher, aka Gallagher II, for stealing his famous Sledge-O-Matic bit or C, Jerome Flatley, brother of the Irish “Lord Of The Dance” Michael Flatley, who advertised himself, quote, “as the one who moves his arms, too.”


M. DUPLASS: You see, “The Secret,” where you use the secret and you will items into getting – “The Secret” wants me to decide on C simply because I really want to see the Flatley feud take place on stage someday.

SAGAL: That would be great. It would be like Jerome Flatley dancing and fighting with his brother Michael Flatley, and Jerome Flatley keeps hitting him with his arms and Michael Flatley can not do that simply because he cannot move his arms.

J. DUPLASS: Since we’ve all been waiting for that dance-off where they truly do punch every other.


M. DUPLASS: I’m feeling B. How about you?

J. DUPLASS: I’m feeling B.

SAGAL: You happen to be correct. It was, in reality, Gallagher.


M. DUPLASS: Oh, yes.

SAGAL: Gallagher sued his brother.


SAGAL: Gallagher sued Gallagher II for copyright infringement. Subsequent query – lately, The New York Instances featured an write-up on identical twins who are engaged in a lifelong feud. Who are they? Are they A, Mikkel and Jeppe Bjergso, identical twin Danish genius craft brewers who loathe each other’s beers, B, Giovanni and Christian Reyardi of Brazil, who are competing Frank Sinatra impersonators, or C, Marvin and Irving Frankel, the two competing rabbis of Chicken, Alaska, competing to attract the town’s only other Jew to their synagogue.


M. DUPLASS: Something tells me the way that bearded Nordic guys feel about their alcohol could be the deepest factor on the planet.

J. DUPLASS: And that the lifelong feud has been fueled by hops…


J. DUPLASS: …And wheat.

M. DUPLASS: And wheat. So…

J. DUPLASS: Possibly they are gluten intolerant as well.



SAGAL: By the way, for individuals who have not observed any of the Duplass brothers’ films, this is it. This is fundamentally – this could be a scene.

M. DUPLASS: As great as it gets in the mumblecore Duplassian genre.


J. DUPLASS: We retain the rights to this episode…


J. DUPLASS: …By the way.

SAGAL: I understand.


M. DUPLASS: Let’s not think about it. Let’s count to three and say a letter. One, two, three…



SAGAL: You happen to be proper.


SAGAL: That is it.



SAGAL: Stated Jeppe Bjergso of his brother Mikkel’s blueberry beer, quote, I believe it really is disgusting. It tastes like Kool-Aid. This really truly is your next film – two craft brewers who hate every single other.

J. DUPLASS: It really is incredible.

M. DUPLASS: Nicely, due to the fact what’s going to be so wonderful is that moment correct around minute 70 when Giuseppe (ph) finds his brother, who has been criticizing his blueberry beer the entire time…

SAGAL: Yeah.

M. DUPLASS: …Secretly enjoying it lasciviously in the garage. And then he cries to him and says I often knew you had been greater than me.

SAGAL: Oh, man.

JOBRANI: Wow, good.

SAGAL: All correct, final query – at times siblings have to come up with inventive ways to express their distaste for every other, like when a man in Florida did what? A, used his mom’s obituary in the newspaper to talk smack about his siblings…

JOBRANI: Hilarious.

SAGAL: …B, alter his name from Anthony Goodson to The Goodson…


SAGAL: …Or C, bought his brother’s favorite bar in Tampa just so he could ban him from ever coming in.


M. DUPLASS: I have a extremely sturdy feeling here that it’s A or C. I put B away in my brain.

J. DUPLASS: I agree.

M. DUPLASS: I put Mr. The away. I want see to be it very, really badly.

J. DUPLASS: I want C to be it. I would like the rights to that story…

M. DUPLASS: Oh, it’s so beautiful.

SAGAL: Seriously, they are going to leave this show with two much more Tv series ready to go.


J. DUPLASS: I’m leaning heavily towards A, however.

M. DUPLASS: Yeah. And you know what? Just since we’re here and we want folks to know how items truly work amongst us, sometimes we disagree. I am going with C.


SAGAL: Oh, well, not only have you disagreed, now we have to see how you resolve your disagreement because you’ve got to choose one.

M. DUPLASS: Proper now, Jay Duplass is dead.


SAGAL: All correct, truly, I feel what…

M. DUPLASS: It makes sense.

SAGAL: I think what we’re going to do is because you have already won the game, I think we’ll do this. So which of you picked A? Who wanted A?

M. DUPLASS: Jay picks A.

SAGAL: Jay picks A, so that indicates that Mark picks C?


SAGAL: All correct, and in this particular instance, Jay wins. It was a.

M. DUPLASS: He’s dead.


M. DUPLASS: (Unintelligible).

SAGAL: Effectively, not only is he dead but so was this lady. Her name was Josie Anello. And her obituary, as printed in the nearby paper, read in component, quote, “she is survived by her son A.J., who cared for her, and her son Peter, who broke her heart.



JOBRANI: That is great.


J. DUPLASS: Oh, man…

SAGAL: Entirely harsh.

J. DUPLASS: So let’s talk about the rights to C and…


M. DUPLASS: We’ll be wrapping that up shortly.

SAGAL: There you are. Bill, how did the Duplass brothers do on our quiz?

KURTIS: Nicely, we have two contestants, so we’ll have to give them an asterisk. But 3 is a perfect score. So congratulations, brothers…

M. DUPLASS: Thank you

J. DUPLASS: Thank you very considerably.

KURTIS: …You won.

ROCCA: You got two and half, two and a half.


SAGAL: The Duplass brother’s show “Animals” airs on Fridays on HBO and “Togetherness” premiers on Sunday February 21, also on HBO. Jay and Mark Duplass, thank you so a lot for playing with us on WAIT WAIT… Never Tell ME.

J. DUPLASS: Thanks for having us.

M. DUPLASS: Thanks guys.

J. DUPLASS: It was exciting.


THE HOLLIES: (Singing) The road is long with a lot of a winding turn.

SAGAL: In just a minute, it’s been 1 week since we last played limericks. And we have a lot to confess. Contact 1-888-WAIT-WAIT to join us on the air. We’ll be back in a bit with much more of WAIT WAIT… Do not Inform ME from NPR.
