The minute-long preview gives us a preview of Dwayne Johnson’s singing skills for the much-anticipated new Disney film.
Moana will follow the story of a girl who defies her father’s wishes to stay in the island reef to brave the ocean and restore order to the world. While the film will obviously be focusing mainly on Auli'i Cravalho’s titular character, Johnson’s sidekick Maui will certainly be seeing plenty of action too. Maui is an arrogant demigod who now has his own self-indulgent song, courtesy of renowned Hamilton composer Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The song, entitled “You’re Welcome”, shows Maui bigging up his many accomplishments for the human race with the help of Mini-Maui, his animated tattoo and occasional conscience. Miranda tailored the song specifically for Johnson, and you can tell from its punchy, lively feel that it certainly has Miranda’s stamp on it.
You can listen to the preview below. Moana will be coming to UK cinemas on 2 December 2016.
