At long last, the first teaser trailer for Disney’s upcoming animated feature Moana has been released. The film stars the voices of Dwayne Johnson as the demi-god Maui, and Auli’i Carvalho as the titular character Moana as she sets sail to prove herself as a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest, with the help of Johnson’s once-mighty demi-god.
This film has been hyped up for as long as I can remember. Not only because Disney has solidified their name in the animated genre as of late, but because it’s based on source material that is rarely explored. And if we’re to take anything away from this teaser, Moana promises to be a beautiful, colorful, and fun journey that features strong musical and magical elements as well. Not to mention that The Rock’s animated version of himself is extremely accurate, right down to the facial expressions and chest pops.
