The first full trailer for the upcoming Thanksgiving Day release of the film, Moana is out. The film stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Maui andÂ Auliâ€˜i Cravalho as Moana.
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 â€“ and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes â€œMoana,â€ 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 Auliâ€˜i Cravalho) meets the 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 sheâ€™s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (â€œThe Little Mermaid,â€Â â€œAladdin,â€ â€œThe Princess & the Frogâ€), produced by Osnat Shurer (â€œLifted,â€ â€œOne Man Bandâ€), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foaâ€˜i, â€œMoanaâ€ sails into U.S. theatersÂ on Nov. 23, 2016.
