New international trailer for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ forthcoming animated feature directed by Ron Clements and John Musker introduces a baby Moana as she meets the Water for the first time.
A new international trailer has arrived for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 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 (voiced by Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (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.
The footage, which might be familiar to fans who attended last year’s D23 Expo, introduces the rest of us to a baby Moana, who is meeting the Water for the first time in her life in an adorably playful two-way conversation:
Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog), Moana lands in theaters in the U.S. on November 23, 2016.
