Baby Moana Plays With the Ocean in This Adorable Disney Trailer

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.
