Following those new character posters, Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a bunch of new promos for Moana, giving us another look at some of the supporting characters of the upcoming animated movie. The videos introduce us to Moana’s pet pig, Pua, as well as Heihei (voiced by none other than Alan Tudyk) and one of the members of the Kakamora, who are some sort of crazy, coconut-armored pirates.

You can watch the promos below.

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 Auliʻi 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 she’s always sought: her own identity.

Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker and featuring the voices of Auli‘i Cravalho as the titular character, Dwayne Johnson as Maui, Jemaine Clement as Tamatoa, Nicole Scherzinger as Sina, Temuera Morrison as Chief Tui, Rachel House as Gramma Tala and Alan Tudyk as Heihei, Moana opens in theaters on November 23, 2016.
