It is time for Disney movie enthusiasts to rejoice. The company on February 8 announced that the sequel to the much-loved animated film Moana, titled Moana 2 will be released theatrically on November 27. Along with the announcement Disney also unveiled Moana 2’s first look and teaser. Moana, which premiered in the silver screens in 2016 was well-appreciated by the critics and audience alike. The musical adventure flick hit the right chords with the masses thanks to its amazing visuals and impressive songs. Reportedly, Moana 2 was initially supposed to be a television series, but Disney CEO Bob Iger later gave a green signal for it to be made into a film.

The teaser video opens with a similar setting of a coastal region where Moana lives. The pastel colours of the sky reflecting on the waters, with an island at a distance brings back fond memories of the prequel. Soon the scene shifts to Moana, dipping her feet in the sand as the waves crash against the shore. She blows into a conch shell, much like in the previous movie indicating the beginning of a sea-faring adventure. A boat can be seen floating on the waters, ready for her to set sail. In the first look, Moana braves the ocean waters with demigod Maui. Beneath them, there is an enormous whale.

Moana 2’s announcement piqued the interest of the masses with them reacting to the teaser and first look. “So you were working on one all this time?! I can’t wait to see it! Hard to believe the 1st one will be 8 years old at the end of this year!!” came one excited comment. “Moana 2?? We didn’t see this coming. I can’t wait,” chimed in another. “This looks amazing!” noted a third individual.

Directed by Dave Derrick Jr, Moana 2 will revolve around Moana undertaking another “expansive new voyage with Maui” and other crew of seafarers after receiving a sudden message from Moana’s “wayfinding ancestors.”

According to a report by Variety, apart from Moana 2, there are talks that a live-action remake of Moana is in the making where Dwayne Johnson will voice Maui’s character. Actress Auli’i Cravalho who lent her voice in Moana is expected to reprise her role in Moana 2, but her return in the live-action remake is yet to be determined.
