This first full trailer for MOANA is still falling!

2 min read


I have to give it to Disney, they know how to win the hearts and minds of many and with this new trailer for Moana, I have a suspicion they are about to do it again! Not content with owning all the money-making IPs they are creating NEW material! NEW!? What is going on here!? Kervyn and I were delighted with the first trailer we were lucky enough to see at the Disney 2016 showcase a few weeks ago, but with this new trailer, a lot more is offered. Sadly I think some of that ‘a lot more’ are scenes from the end, why must they do this!?

Starring the God Dwayne Johnson – no, don’t look at me like that. He IS a god, well, a demi-god with a hundred names anyway. Johnson has certainly been in a lot of movies these days but unlike Nicholas Cage they haven’t all sucked. I think this role is pretty much perfect for him too. Stepping onto the stage next to the almighty behemoth is the rather smaller newcomer Auli’i Cravalho. I am pretty sure we are going to be hearing a lot more from her in the coming years. Anyway, have a watch and prepare to grin:

That looks like a ton of fun! Also, I have a feeling that sidekick chicken is going to elicit a bunch of laughs form everyone. Damn he/she/it looks about as mental as Trevor after eating all the cookies.

Directed by John Musker and Ron Clements and also starring long-time voice actor Alan Tudyk  the film is packed with talent. I think Disney will be swimming in a bunch of cash come 23 November when Moana is officially released.

I have been an avid fan of movies ever since I discovered Santa Clause wasn't real, a day marked in my memory by my first viewing of It's a Wonderful Life, which wasn't so wonderful that day. Since then I've watched thousands of movies and even fooled my parents into putting me through uni to get a degree in the subject. I first started writing as a journalist for The South African Newspaper before moving onto communications for an NGO trying to save the planet. Unfortunately my recommendations to the CEO that we should all don rings imbued with the powers of earth, fire, wind, water and HEART went unheard. Now I pretend the end isn't nigh by hiding in movies.
