Imagine being a kid, going grocery shopping with your parents and seeing someone who looks exactly like a character from your favorite Disney movie. That’s exactly what happened to two little girls from Hawaii who saw someone who looked like the real-life version of a character from the hit Disney film Moana.
In fact, I can say that they found the real-life version of Maui, one of the main characters from the film. Turns out, in his spare time, Maui enjoys working at Costco. He’s a cashier and goes by the name William Va’ana. The resemblance is uncanny.
If you happen to live under a rock and have never heard of the film “Moana”, it’s probably the most popular film amongst kids and even adults today. It’s about a girl who goes out to sea to restore the heart of Te Fiti, an Island that was destroyed because of Maui, who is a demigod. Maui isn’t a bad guy, just a guy who messed up.
The character is voiced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the movie and kids love him. When you look at William, you can’t help but notice the striking resemblance. It turns out eight-year-old Ryley and her sister five-year-old Rylyn thought so, too. The girls were out shopping with their mom when one of them saw William at the cash register and insisted that he must be Maui. Then the younger sister started yelling Maui’s name and eventually gets William’s attention.
