The new trailer for Moana, featuring Disney's very first Polynesian princess, has just been released. And now we really can't wait to see it.
Starring 14-year-old Hawaiian actress Auli'i Cravalho as the voice of Moana, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as her demi-god hero Maui, the film tells the story of Princess Moana Waialiki, who uses her navigational skills to set sail for a mythical island – which can save her people.
The short clip doesn't give too much away, but we're warned that the duo will go through a "whole ocean of bad," on their journey - one that includes defeating lava monsters.
The "adventurous, tenacious and compassionate" Moana appears to be one of the fiercest, most independent of Disney's princesses. And, "Along the way," we're told, "she discovers the one thing she's always sought: her own identity."
#Repost @therock Ladies and gentlemen, the STAR of #MOANA and a girl who I adore.. @auliicravalho. A beautiful aloha spirit. Can't wait for you to see her performance in our movie. What a voice! #MOANA THIS THANKSGIVING. (take note fellas, the bouquet of flowers I gave her as a gift. Chivalry lives. Plus it's also called earning brownie points😉)
The movie also showcases the talents of Broadway's "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. To celebrate the new Moana trailer, Miranda joined Caravalho and The Rock in a brief rendition of a new track from the film.
Moana hits cinemas on Boxing Day.
