Disney on Ice's tour to New Zealand will see hits from the film Moana performed in te reo Māori.

The popular Moana songs will form part of the Disney tour, with one performance at each venue being presented in te reo.

The show's producer Nicole Feld said they wanted to perform the segment in Māori because of the film's "cultural significance in the Pacific" and highlighted the love for Moana in New Zealand.

"Each section of the show was carefully selected to immerse families in an array of stories that they have grown to know and love," Feld said.

"Because of its cultural significance in the Pacific and how beloved the character is here, this year, we are particularly delighted to bring the story of Moana to life for New Zealand audiences in te reo Māori for one performance in each city.

The Disney On Ice Celebrates Mickey And Friends tour will visit Auckland, Hamilton and Christchurch this August.

Radio personality and Disney on ice ambassador Stacey Morrison says it's a great opportunity to pay tribute to our beautiful language.

"The opportunity for New Zealand audiences to see Moana in te reo Māori makes me so proud that families can enjoy our unique and beautiful language in such an entertaining setting".

The new show features Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy travelling through the various Disney worlds.

Tickets go on sale April 1 at 9am. Prices start at $33.
