This movie looks gorgeous.
So a new trailer for Moana came out today. Not that any of us really need any more convincing to see this movie, but it’s nice to have anyway. Check it out:
As expected, another great trailer. I’ll see pretty much anything from Walt Disney Animation Studios, they’ve already had one knockout with this year’s Zootopia, and this looks to be more of the same. Dwayne Johnson sounds like he’s having a lot of fun voicing Maui, I can’t wait to hear his entire performance in the finished film.
I still can’t get over just how beautiful Moana looks. Everything from the character designs, the crazy lava monsters, and even just the water effects are stunning to look at. This will definitely be a visual treat, with a fantastic score to boot.
Here’s a synopsis in case you still aren’t sold:
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i.
Moana sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
