Disney’s Moana Trailer: Just a Girl, Her Chicken, and the Rock Against the World

By

The official full-length trailer for Disney’s Moana is here, and it is action-packed: Our heroes sail across a sentient ocean, fight a lava creature, and jump into some kind of monster-filled underworld. Even the tiny coconut creatures have poisonous blow darts! They're coconuts powerful enough to take down a demigod! As you might have pieced together from the movie’s previous trailers below, Moana (voiced by newcomer Auli’i Cravalho) finds herself on a hero’s journey to save her community with the help (i.e. non-stop wisecracks) from Maui (Dwayne Johnson). Featuring music from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the trailer does a nice job of setting up truly epic narrative and visual stakes. You'd have to, if you’re going to put the Rock on the side of the underdog and expect anybody to think he might lose.
