Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a new TV spot for Moana that has the titular character (voiced by Auli‘i Cravalho) calling on Dwayne Johnson’s Demigod Maui to join her in a quest to save the world.
Set to music written and performed by artists including Lin-Manuel Miranda, the TV spot features more of the seemingly reluctant partnership between Moana and Maui as well as what may be the best look at the brilliantly designed Pele, Goddess of Fire and Volcanoes.
You can watch the new TV spot 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, the film features the voice talent of Auli‘i Cravalho as Moana, 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 Hei Hei.
Moana is set to be released in theaters on November 23, 2016.
