Check out the trailer below:
Here is the official synopsis of the film:
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one today knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.
Moana was co-written by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, Thor: Ragnarok) and features music by Lin-Manuel Miranda. The film also stars Alan Tudyk and Miranda’s Hamilton co-star Phillipa Soo, and hits theaters on November 23.
