'Moana' trailer

'Moana' trailer has Dwayne Johnson hitting the animated seas

Disney released the official trailer for "Moana," its upcoming animated film starring Johnson and newcomer Auli'i Cravalho, on Thursday and the film appears to be as fun as "Frozen," albeit in a much warmer setting.

The film tells the story of Moana, Disney's first Polynesian princess, as she sets out in the South Pacific to find Maui, a shape shifting demi-god played by Johnson.

"Moana" features songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is coming off playing Alexander Hamilton in the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton," which he wrote.
