New MOANA Song Clip & Featurette (VIDEOS)

With a Thanksgiving weekend debut just weeks away now, Walt Disney Animation Studios is releasing more promo clips for their upcoming original animated adventure tale Moana.

In the two videos below – that both include new footage – the film’s music and research are highlighted. “We Know The Way” is an anthem that showcases the rich and vibrant voyaging life of Moana’s Pacific Island ancestors. It’s written and performed by Opetaia Foa‘i and Hamilton Tony-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Then in the featurette “The Way To Moana”, directors Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid) lead their design team through field (and ocean) research into Pacific Island geography and culture. Voice stars Auli’I Carvalho and Dwayne Johsnon also make appearances.

Co-starring the voices of Temuera MorrisonNicole ScherzingerRachel HouseJemaine ClementAlan Tudyk, and Hamilton star Phillipa Soo, Moana opens in theaters on November 23, 2016.
