While watching the new Sims 4 trailer, you might have been distracted trying to pin down whose voice was narrating Nalani’s story. We did some digging and discovered that it was Auli’i Cravalho, the voice actress for Moana. When Island Living was announced, a lot of people cracked Moana jokes and made comparisons to the character, but it turns out that EA was in on the joke all along!

This is the second time this week we have been taken aback by high profile actors contributing to video game marketing. Just a few days ago, we did a double take at Tom Holland and Hannibal Buress’ commercial for Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers.

The Sims 4 Island Living expansion comes out tomorrow, June 21. And though we probably won’t hear anymore voice acting additions from Auli’i, her character Nalani will be in the game and roaming the new tropical Sims world of Sulani.
