First 'Moana' Teaser: See Dwayne Johnson as an Ancient Demi-God

Disney

The spot features original song "We Know the Way" from 'Hamilton' creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The marketing campaign for Moana has officially set sail.

Walt Disney Animation debuted the first teaser trailer for the studio's latest feature, which follows Moana Waialiki, voiced by newcomer Auli'i Cravalho, a young girl from the South Pacific who sets sail for a fabled island with the help of ancient demi-god Maui.

The spot opens with a very self-promotional Maui, played by Dwayne Johnson, regaling Moana and her adorably disinterested pet pig with his fetes of courage and grandeur.

Along with Cravalho and Johnson, Lin-Manuel Miranda can be heard in the spot with the song “We Know the Way,” and original from the Hamilton producer, Opetaia Foa’i and Lion King composer Mark Mancina.

Moana will hit theaters over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend on Nov. 23.
