Adventure Awaits in Disney’s Full ‘Moana’ Trailer
Disney’s newest princess, Moana, is about to set sail on an adventure that will take her across oceans and into different dimensions and the latest trailer from the film gives us a closer look into her beautiful world.
The heroine, voiced by newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, lives in ancient Oceania in the South Pacific. In the new trailer we see that her island is quite idyllic and has been that way for some time, but a new evil is headed her way to destroy her homeland. It’s up to Moana to seek out demi-god Maui and save her people and their home.
Of course the pair, and their adorable pet sidekicks, will face some danger along their journey (like the cute but deadly Kakamora), but judging from the trailer, that journey will be a fun and beautiful one. Watch the new trailer, and read Disney’s official description of the movie, below!
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows why.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “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.
