If you saw Finding Dory this weekend, then you also saw Disney’s very first trailer for their next animated feature, Moana. (You probably also saw the fifteen billionth appearance of the Secret Life of Pets trailer….if I have to watch that headbanging poodle ONE MORE TIME…but I digress.)

Check out Maui! He’s got a giant hook, tattoos that talk, and Dwayne Johnson’s voice! Is he really a demigod, as he claims? Princess Moana looks skeptical. Directed by the legendary John Musker and Ron Clements, Disney’s Moana is setting sail for Thanksgiving weekend and looks great already.

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows why.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”) and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
