Last fall I shared with you the voice behind Disney’s newest princess Moana!, who will appear in her own self-titled film! Today I have the teaser trailer for the upcoming movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Just to recap, Disney selected native Hawaiian newcomer Auli’i Cravalho to voice the Moana, alongside Dwayne Johnson, who will play demi-god Maui.
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.
MOANA tells the tale of a spirited and compassionate teenager, who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her adventure, Moana meets the once-mighty, but charismatic and funny demigod Maui. He wields a magical fishhook that allows him to shapeshift into all kinds of animals… but that’s not all. He also holds the magic to be able to pull up islands from the sea.
With his guidance, she is able to become a master wayfinder and sail across the ocean on a new and exciting voyage! She encounters enormous monsters and impossible odds, all while fulfilling the ancient quest of her ancestors. In time, she discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity…
