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, she 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.
The trailer was initially slated to be officially released at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET but was pulled by Disney at the last minute, presumably out of respect to those affected by the Orlando tragedy at The Pulse nightclub last night. Some are theorizing online that the trailer will be officially released during tonight’s live air of the Tony Awards on CBS as Moana contributor and music composer Lin-Manuel Miranda’s ‘Hamilton’ is poised for a record setting number of awards. Miranda can be heard singing in the trailer embedded above.
