Disney Releases New ‘Moana’ TV Spot

Walt Disney Animation Studios released a new preview for its upcoming animated adventure Moana on Sunday, during NBC’s coverage of the Olympics.

The film tells the story of an adventurous teenager, Moana (voiced by Auli’I Cravalho), who goes on a daring mission to save her people. She then meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voiced by Dwayne Johnson) who helps in her quest.


In the minute-long preview, we also get a glimpse of the villain, a fiery lava witch, who appears to cause the pair some trouble at sea.

Watch the new TV spot below.

The film includes music from Lin-Manuel Miranda and also features the voices of Nicole Scherzinger, Jemaine Clement and Alan Tudyk.

Moana opens in theaters nationwide on November 23.
