Disney’s MOANA is on my top five list for end of the year releases. I can’t wait to see the finished product. And I know I’m not alone in my anticipation. The rest of you are excited too – I can feel it in my soul. Disney has released a new trailer – and if you can believe it, it’s even better than the last.
The trailer opens on Gramma Tala’s (Moana’s grandmother) narration. She’s voiced by Rachel House, who plays the hilarious child welfare service worker in HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE (which, if you haven’t seen it yet, GO RIGHT NOW). We also get a longer look at that silly rascal chicken Heihei, who is one of the two breakout stars of the film (the other is Moana’s pig you saw in the teaser, Pua). Plus, we hear more of that great island soundtrack.
Get ready to feel some feels when MOANA opens on November 23.
