Moana: Lin-Manuel Miranda sings in new clip from Disney movie

Posted on


Disney’s newest film, Moana, has yet to make its way into theaters but the buzz around the 3D musical is still at an all-time high.

Following Disney’s release of Alessia Cara’s inspiring anthem, “How Far I’ll Go,” on Thursday, Lin-Manuel Miranda took to Twitter on Monday to share a new clip from the film which shows the voyages of Moana’s ancestors. The clip, which you can see above, also features a preview of “We Know the Way,” an original song performed by Miranda and Opetaia Foa‘i.  

After tweeting the clip, the Hamilton creator explained that his vocals were originally only supposed to be in the demo of the song but were ultimately kept in for the final version. 


Disney also recently released another track from the film called “You’re Welcome,” sung by Dwayne Johnson’s demigod character, Maui. 

Moana sails into theaters on Nov. 23.
