TRAILER: Moana 2 (2024)

Today, Disney released a teaser trailer for Moana 2. This clip provides the best look at the movie yet, showing Moana banging the hidden drum again and responding to a call from the ancestors. Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson reprise the lead roles of Moana of Motunui and Maui the demigod. David G. Derrick is directing the movie, with Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear writing the new songs instead of Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote the music in the first movie. Moana 2 is the first of several sequels to animated Disney movies announced by Bob Iger in a Disney earnings call in February, along with Zootopia 2 next year, and Toy Story 5 and Frozen 3 in 2026. Check out the trailer here: 

I’m worried about Miranda’s absence and the change in director, but this looks great. The spirit is right, and the animation is glorious. That doesn’t mean the movie will be good (or isn’t totally unnecessary), but I’m heartened by what they showed in the trailer. The fact that Auli’i is returning to voice Moana is a big reason I have faith in this, and her replacement is one of the many issues I have with the remake that shouldn’t exist. I will watch Moana 2 when it comes out, and for now, I’m cautiously optimistic. 

But what do you think about Moana 2 or the trailer? Let us know in the comments!

Looks good. Needs a few wholesome songs. Will never forget Claire Crosby’s version of How Far I’ll Go. That alone was worth it.
Also, it’s just one role that fits The Rock like a glove. It’s like, finally, a character that really fits him. Hard to find key roles to make legendary characters, but in this, I think Dwayne Johnson gets a bit of a break. Could see in the future maybe this character becoming kind of like Thor.

All I see is a full fledged girlboss who everyone loves and already knows everything. Where’s the antagonist? Where’s the challenge, where’s the story? I could be wrong, but Disney doesn’t deserve the benefit of doubt.

Really? I watched the trailer and it looked like a video game, not a Disney animated feature.
After researching why, I found out Disney’s true animation studio didn’t make this, but a Canada based off-shoot that has never done a feature film before.
