Disney fans have long awaited this moment, but it’s here! The teaser trailer for Walt Disney Animation’s upcoming animated musical Moana has hit the web. The movie is not only the first computer animated flick by legendary Disney directors Ron Clements and John Musker, but after instant hits like Big Hero 6 and Zootopia fans probably cant wait to see what else Disney has in store for us with Moana.
It was announced earlier this week, alongside a beautiful new poster, that the trailer would be released today. The new teaser features a first look at our main characters, Moana and Maui, as well as a bunch of beautiful shots from the movie and sneak peek at some of the music. Check out the teaser trailer below!
Moana is directed by legendary Disney directors Ron Clements and John Musker and produced by Osnat Shrurer from a script by Jared Bush, Ron Clements, John Musker, Pamela Ribon and Taika Waititi. The film’s music will be written by Opetaia Foa’i, Mark Mancina and Lin-Manuel Miranda. The film features the voice talents of newcomer Auli’i Cravalho as Moana and Dwayne Johnson has her demigod companion, Maui.
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.
Disney’s Moana soars into theaters on November 23, 2016.
