Disney’s upcoming Moana just got its first cast member. The Rock announced on Twitter today that he was “excited to star” in the film, calling it an “incredible story!” Moana tells the story of a young Polynesian girl navigating the Pacific, and the Rock will play Maui, a benevolent demigod who joins her on the adventure. If his #TimeToSing hashtag is any indication, the part will give the Rock another chance to show off his always-charming singing voice. In honor of the occasion, here’s video of him covering Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” during a wrestling event. It’s almost certainly the most adorable clip the WWE has ever aired.
