Are you one of the few who couldn’t make it to see “Moana” Thanksgiving weekend? Or, are you among those who can’t get the catchy, Lin-Manuel Miranda-penned songs out of your head? Either way, we’ve got good news! Disney has released a full clip for you to devour along with your turkey leftover: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s big solo, appropriately entitled “You’re Welcome.”
The musical number clocks in at under 3 minutes, but in the short time span you get a pretty good summation of The Rock’s character Maui. “I see what’s happening, yeah,” Maui croons to the titular Moana after delusionally thinking he’s helped her. (Spoiler: he hasn’t.) “You’re face-to-face with greatness and it’s strange/ Don’t even know how you feel — it’s adorable!” The demigod goes on to dazzle Moana to the point of distraction with tales of grandeur and dancing tattoos before stealing her boat and leaving her in a cave.
Maui serves as an unconventional sidekick for Disney’s increasingly unconventional princess tales. The move away from traditional love stories and damsels in distress have not hurt at the box office- after dominating Thanksgiving week, “Moana” is clocking in at over $80 million domestically, second only to “Frozen,” Disney’s other modernized princess tale.
Directed by Ron Clements, Don Hall, John Musker and Chris Williams, “Moana” also stars newcomer Auli’i’ Cravalho as the Polynesian princess Moana.
