Disney tips the cuteness scale with this new Japanese trailer for "Moana," which really is just one scene ... that will give any puppy video a run for its money.
The sequence depicts the title character as a toddler playing in the surf as she discovers her magical connection with the ocean, shown here as a sentient lifeform like something from "The Abyss," only cuddlier.
Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), the CG-animated film follows the adventurous teenager Moana (newcomer Auli’i Cravalho) as she sets out on a daring mission across Oceania to save her people. On her journey, she meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson), who guides her on her quest to become a master wayfinder, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds along the way.
“Moana” arrives in theaters Nov. 23.
