Great news for all Disney fans: The enchanting world of Motunui is set to return to the big screen! Nearly eight years after its original release, the beloved film “Moana,” which gained the honor of being the most-streamed movie of 2023 with 11.6 billion minutes viewed, is getting a sequel scheduled for release on November 27, 2024.

In this highly-anticipated sequel, “Moana 2” picks up three years after the events of the original movie. The latest teaser showcases Moana and Maui under a sky full of stars, embarking on a new adventure that promises to captivate audiences once again. Fans of the first film will be happy to know that Auli’i Cravalho will reprise her role as Moana, bringing her iconic character back to life. Auli’i shared her excitement in a heartwarming Instagram video from Disney Animation, expressing her joy at returning to Motunui.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will also return as Maui, a character inspired by his late grandfather, High Chief Peter Maivia. Johnson recently wrapped his voice work for the film, sharing touching moments with his daughter in the studio, and expressed his excitement about returning to a role that has deeply affected his life. “You will feel the mana,” he assured fans, hinting at the cultural significance and emotional depth that this sequel will explore.

One notable change in the creative team is Lin-Manuel Miranda’s absence from the sequel’s music production. Instead, Disney has enlisted musicians Barlow & Bear, known for their Bridgerton fan musical, to join returning composers Opetaia Foa’i and Mark Mancina. This fresh musical collaboration promises to bring new, enchanting tunes to Moana’s continuing journey.

Plot details are still relatively scarce, but according to Disney’s official logline, Moana will receive an unexpected call from her wayfinding ancestors. She will set forth on a daring adventure alongside Maui and new friends into the far seas of Oceania, venturing into long-lost waters.
