Disney has been pulling out all the stops in promoting its new film Moana, timed to hit theaters during this Thanksgiving’s holiday weekend. The stills and animation released thus far for the Auli‘i Cravalho/Dwayne Johnson-helmed movie look lush and prove to showcase both images and story not yet seen from a Disney joint–and that’s saying something. Check out the newest poster the House of Mouse just dropped for our Magic Kingdom-thirsty eye-holes to gobble up.
Moana, starring Auli‘i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson, premieres November 23rd from Disney. Also, be sure to tune into Good Morning America on ABC this Thursday for a brand spankin’ new trailer for the flick!
From the official movie description:
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.
