During Sunday night’s Tony Awards telecast, Disney debuted the teaser trailer for its animated fantasy adventure “Moana,” introducing the world to newcomer Auli’i Cravalho as the title character, and, yes, Dwayne Johnson as the demigod Maui.
In the footage below, the tattooed powerhouse regales the girl with tales of his supernatural feats. Alas, she’s thoroughly unimpressed.
Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), the CG-animated film follows the adventurous teenager Moana as she sets out on a daring mission across Oceania to save her people. On her journey, she meets the once-mighty demigod Maui, 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.
