Here’s our first listen to “You’re Welcome” from Disney’s Moana, written by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda and performed by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
It’s also just been announced that Moana will receive its world premiere at the AFI Fest on November 14.
The official synopsis reads:
“Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped — and no one today knows why.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes ‘Moana,’ a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfill her ancestors’ unfinished quest. During her journey, she meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.”
Take a listen to the clip below. As a lifelong Disney fan, I couldn’t be more excited to set sail with Moana and her traveling companion Maui. It seems we’re in for a vividly rip-roaring adventure.
