Disney’s newest heroine already has a crush on one of her costars.

Auli’i Cravalho, the 14-year-old newcomer who voices Moana, sat down with PEOPLE on Monday to answer some burning questions, and says she’s very excited to work with a certain member of the cast.

“The one actor I’m dying to work with is the Rock, of course,” the native Hawaiian said. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is set to voice a demigod named Maui whom Moana encounters during her travels.

“The coolest thing about the Rock is his muscles,” Cravalho gushed. “Or his personality, his smile, his muscles. All of that.”

We also asked the actress about her favorite Disney princess.

“My favorite Disney heroine when I was young was Mulan,” Cravalho said. “She was very inspiring to me and she really brought honor to her family.”

As for her favorite movie, the high schooler said she watches The Sound of Music on repeat. “Julie Andrews, that girl has got some lungs,” she joked.
