Last night at the Tony Awards we got our first, brief look at Disney’s upcoming film Moana.
Here’s a longer version, featuring a really fun look at Dwayne Johnson’s character, the demigod Maui:
The animation, unsurprisingly, looks gorgeous and it’s not a big stretch to assume this will be another hit for Disney.
Featuring music from Lin-Manuel Miranda (who took home several awards at the Tonys last night) and more, this already looks like a fun adventure and I can’t wait to see it.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
