This first international trailer shows our young princess bonding with the sea (the teen version is a skilled navigator) as a gentle song plays over their magical games.
Here's the trailer:
Isn't that lovely? "Moana" will include songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda, Opetaia Foa'i, and Mark Mancina. (FYI, the name of the song in the trailer is "Loimata e Maligi" by Te Vaka.) The previous trailer was just a teaser focusing on Dwayne Johnson's Maui as he tried to impress the teen Moana.
Here's the official synopsis:
"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. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker ('The Little Mermaid,' 'Aladdin,' 'The Princess & the Frog'), and produced by Osnat Shurer ('Lifted,' 'One Man Band'), 'Moana' sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016."
