Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson continues to drop big news regarding his upcoming projects via social media, as the actor took to Twitter to tease the release of the teaser trailer for his new animated film, Disney’s Moana.
“#MOANA EXCLUSIVE: This SUN I’m excited to share the spectacular visuals behind this movie w/ the 1st teaser trailer,” the actor, who voices a demi-god named Maui in the film, tweeted Wednesday alongside an image showing off Moana‘s first& poster.
As the actor indicated, the first teaser trailer for Moana is expected to be released Sunday.
Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the power duo behind Disney’s iconic animated features The Little Mermaid (1989), Aladdin (1992), and Hercules (1997), Moana tells the coming-of-age story of a teenager in the South Pacific, Moana (Auli’i Cravalho), a young navigator who voyages across the sea to a mysterious island fabled by her ancestors.
Hamilton creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda is penning new music (with Opetaia Foaʻi and Mark Mancina) for Moana, while his Broadway costar, Phillipa Soo, recently joined the voice cast of the animated project. Actor Alan Tudyk (Frozen, Big Hero 6) also teased his involvement in the film last year.
Miranda teased the first footage from the film in January, tweeting, “I can’t wait for you to meet Moana” alongside a brief clip.
Disney’s Moana sets sail Nov. 23. Check out the full theatrical poster below.
