For real, who ISN’T excited about Disney’s Moana? One of 2016’s most anticipated films is about to hit theaters on November 23rd and today I have details to share with you about the Moana Soundtrack and two new clips from the film!
Disney’s Moana stars newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, as Moana, and a name you are definitely familiar with – Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as Maui. In this first clip we see how the two characters meet for the first time!
Did you also know that Dwayne sings? In this second clip you can hear him singing a song called “You’re Welcome” written Tony Award winner and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
Now let’s talk about the MOANA SOUNDTRACK. I am crazy excited about this and so are my girls. We love listening to Disney soundtracks so we’ll be adding this one to our collection and hope you will be too. You can find the soundtrack in stores on November 18th.
The Moana original motion picture soundtrack features seven original songs and a full original score, plus two reprises as well as two end-credit versions of songs from the film.
The diverse and dynamic team behind the film’s inspired music includes Tony®- and Grammy®-winning songwriter/composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, who counts among his credits Broadway’s Pulitzer Prize-winning and multiple Tony-winning “Hamilton” and the Tony-winning “In the Heights.” The creative team also includes three-time Grammy®-winning composer Mark Mancina (“Speed,” “Tarzan” and the Oscar®-winning “Training Day”) and Opetaia Foa‘i, the founder and lead singer of Te Vaka, a winner of numerous world music awards.

ABOUT: Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
