"We’re on the hunt for arero māori to step up and help bring this magical iteration of Encanto Reo Māori to life.
We want to see you in these auditions so be yourself! " Matewa Media wrote on their website.

"Have a whānau member or friend practice doing the scene out loud with you. Practice it in lots of different ways and remember to keep it natural and real. Make sure you also get your friend/whānau member to read the lines with you in your recordings!"

The auditions will close on Sunday 23 July, 11.59pm NZST.

The audition is currently online where you will be sending a head shot of you, an audio file of you performing the dialogue audition piece in Te Reo  Māori and also an audio file of your character's song.
