Disney Channel viewers were treated to something special this past weekend when the first footage from Moana was released. While the 30-second teaser was short and sweet, it did offer some insight into Dwayne Johnson’s character Maui, who appears to be a sprite and cheerful guy. Take a look at the teaser below:
Set 2000 years ago, the film takes places in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania where a born navigator, Moana, sets sail in search of a fabled island. It’s during her journey that she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god, Maui.
Since the film doesn’t come out until November 23 we’ll have to wait a little longer to see Moana in action. One thing’s for sure: a Disney Polynesian princess is long overdue.
