Disney Releases First Teaser Trailer for ‘Moana’
Disney could have another classic in the making on their hands with their latest animated film Moana.
The new fun film stars Dwayne Johnson as the voice of demi-god Maui and newcomer Auli’i Cravalho as the voice of the titular character, Moana. In the first look at the film, Johnson’s character tries to wow Moana with his own story, but ends up getting a confused look from the girl and one of pure disinterest from her cute pet pig. The teaser trailer also gives a quick look at Moana’s South Pacific world, which is one of bright colors, beautiful seas and tons of adventure.
The film is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (the duo who also directed Disney classics Aladdin, The Little Mermaid and The Princess and the Frog, among others) and features music from Hamilton‘s Lin Manuel Miranda.
Take a look at the fun, beautiful trailer, and read a description of the film via Disney, below:
Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess & the Frog) and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”).
Moana sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
