A polynesian pronounciation lesson in Texan twang

Tū mai, tū atu, ko te reo Māori tērā e patua ana e te hunga tauiwi me te hē o te whakahua kupu, te kore hāngai tika rānei ki tōna tikanga. Hei tērā wiki ka whakarewaina tuatahi ai te kiriata o Disney, a Moana i tētahi hui whāriki whero ki Los Angeles, ā ko te matapae a tētahi tokorua nō Texas e whakapapa ana ki Tonga, mā tā rāua kōrero ā papori nei ka whakatahangia ngā āhuatanga kōhuru reo Poronīhia ki te taha.

E hiahia ana a Joshua Kasitati ki te whakatika i ngā kōrero e hora nei mō te whakahua tika i te taitara o te kiriata hou a Disney, a Moana, i roto hoki i tana reo Texan..

“We just needed to clarify some things to the world,” hei tā Mr Kasitati.

I roto i te haora kotahi, i tohaina ana kōrero papori e toru tekau mā ono ngā wā, kātahi ka wheori haere

“We've made video's before, we're goofballs we do that so I thought maybe give a week or two, maybe a month, but I didn't think in two days.”

He whakapapa Tonga tōna ko tōna tūngāne, engari i whanau mai, i tipu mai hoki i Texas. Rāua tahi i whakahē ki ngā kōrero kōhuru i te kupu Moana a i ētahi atu.

“I'm telling him the story and as we're walking through Walmart we pass by the doll and he turns around and he's like pull the camera out, pull the camera out, let's go, and put me live. Just off the top of his head that's what he came up with and I'm just in the background dying,” hei tā Ms Kasitati.

Ko Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson te kaitapere matua, ko ia te reo o māui. Kei roto hoki te reo a ētahi kaitapere Māori, a Rachael House rāua ko Temuera Morrison, ko tā Morrision ki Te Kāea i te rangi nei. "He kiriata Disney me te kaitapere The Rock, he mahi ngahau, he kiriata Disney me he taera Hāmoa.

"It's a Disney movie with The Rock for kids, fun. It’s Disney Samoan flavoured."

E ai kia Mr Kasitati, “We love that The Rock did the voice even though he can't pronounce all the words right but he's representing for all the Polynesians and the islands. We're just helping getting the message out there we're really excited to go and see the movie, it’s gonna be a great movie.”

Ahakoa o rātou whakaaro mo te kōrero kōhuru i te kupu moana kei te kaikā tonu rātou ki te mātakitaki i te kiriata.
