The Rock Unleashes His Musical Talent In New ‘Moana’ Clip

One of the most cherished parts of a Disney animated film are the songs. Be it Try Everything from Zootopia or the highly viral Let It Go from Frozen, they’ve been a huge part of the Disney animated experience. Of course the upcoming Moana would be following this tradition!

The studio has released two new clips from the upcoming animated film and one of them features The Rock singing an original composition for the film. The song titled You Welcome has a fun peppy tune to it. And the best part? All the songs for the film are co-composed by Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda. Joining Miranda in the soundtrack department are industry veteran Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa’I.

Read the official synopsis for the film here :

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 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 once-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. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”) and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
