Tell us about your Hawaii connection.

Dwayne Johnson: I’m Dwayne Johnson, and I’m “These islands are unlike any other. They’re still alive. And the mana is genuine – it is strong and potent. When you’re over here, you get lost in time. It’s a never-ending treadmill in New York and Los Angeles. However, when you come out here, you lose track of time. When it comes to the aloha spirit and all that entails, I’m a huge preacher.”

And to you it’s home?

“It’s always nice to return home. And I enjoy bringing folks here who have never been before – relatives and friends — and seeing how they respond when they step off the plane. Because it’s true: the mana, the aloha, and the spirit all hit you at the same time. You have a different drive, energy and motivation when you come down here and unplug — all coming from different places.”

“Is it then simply a coincidence that you’re usually filming out there?” 

I’ve achieved a stage in my career where I can confidently suggest that we shoot in Hawaii [laughs]. It’s fantastic for the team. It’s a fantastic way to support the local economy. So, yes, I’ve worked on a lot of films in this town. I’d like to bring as much production as possible here. Hawaii has likewise performed admirably in the face of COVID.”
