Everything we've seen so far has indicated that "Moana," Disney's latest foray in its recent animated musical resurgence, will be a beautiful, moving film, featuring some dazzling visuals and heart-tugging storylines. And the debut of the movie's first poster only confirms that belief.
Dwayne Johnson, who plays demigod Maui in the flick, revealed the one-sheet on his Twitter account on Monday. The poster features our titular Polynesian princess standing proudly front and center, flanked by Maui and her two animal sidekicks: Pua, a pig, and Hei Hei, a rooster.

The beautiful oceanic imagery behind the characters calls to mind that on display in the most recent teaser trailer, which featured a young Moana wading into the water, which played back with her as she splashed in the waves. That creativity has us excited about the adventures that the teenage Moana will go on throughout the rest of the flick, and we can't wait to see how Disney animators bring it all to life.
In addition to debuting the poster, Johnson also revealed that a new trailer for the film will be dropping on Thursday during Johnson's appearance on "Good Morning America." We're looking forward to seeing more from this promising-looking production.
