Dwayne Johnson might as well be a demigod. The CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE, BAYWATCH and FAST 8 star turns his talents to animation as the voice of demigod Maui in which he gets to sing for the first time. In the first teaser trailer for Disney's MOANA, we don't hear The Rock's singing chops, but we meet his larger-than-life character along with the title character of Moana. Watch the trailer for the upcoming musical.
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 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 once-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”) and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), MOANA sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
