MOANA takes place in the ancient South Pacific world of Oceania. The titular character (Auli'i Cravalho), a born navigator, sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her incredible journey, she teams up with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui (Dwayne Johnson), to traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore. Check out the first image below!

14-year old Auli'i Cravalho was discovered during a charity competition, after which an agent flew her out to Los Angeles to meet directors Ron Clements and John Musker (THE LITTLE MERMAID, ALADDIN). The rest, as they say, is history. You can check out a brief video below of Auli'i's audition process as well as some concept art for the film. Given the directors involved, I'll be expecting something special from Disney Animation's next!

MOANA is scheduled to hit theaters on November 23, 2016.

So will 2016 be the first time Disney Animation has released 2 films in the same year (Zootopia and this one)? Is that because they didn't release a film this year? Similar to how Pixar took off 2014, and have 2 films in 2015.

If you aren't going "Awwww" right now, you need your heart checked

That was the most adorable thing I've seen today. I hope this movie is successful; Auli'i Cravalho seems like a real sweetie. And yes, I have a soft spot for Disney Animation.

This video is the best thing I've watched today. I have high hopes for this movie, hopefully it's just another in Pixar's resurgence.

It's not Pixar, it's Disney Animation. But I agree.
