What’s a better way to start off the new year than with Disney animation? Two days ago we got a new Zootopia trailer and today we got some new Moanafootage! Last week, Disney released a few seconds of Maui animation during a special broadcast on television. Today, some new footage, including short clips from the movie of both Moana and Maui, were released during a Disney Movie Surfers broadcast on the Disney Channel.
Check out the new footage below!
The new footage features short clips from the movie, giving us our first animated look at the character of Moana. We also get some extra footage of Maui. Even though it’s from the same part of the movie as the previously released footage, it’s some new animation of Maui we have not yet seen before. Finally, we also got two new character images of both characters and their animal sidekicks.
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped — and no one today knows why.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes ‘Moana,’ a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, she meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.
Moana sails into cinemas on November 23, 2016.
What do you think of this new look at Moana? Are you excited for the film?
