We were on the edge of our seats earlier this week when the official new teaser trailer for Moana 2 debuted on social media platforms across the world. We watched intently as the familiar faces of beloved characters appeared one by one. Moana, of course, took center stage, but along the way, we saw glimpses of her family, Maui, Pua, and Hei Hei, confirming that the full complement of original characters would be returning for the next adventure. Though the trailer didn’t give away too much of the plot for this upcoming sequel, it did spark the interest of Disney fans around the world in record-breaking numbers! Read the details from The Walt Disney Company included below:

The first look at the sequel to the 2016 musical adventure set a record for the biggest animated trailer launch in Disney history, receiving 178 million views in 24 hours, surpassing Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2 (157 million views in 2023), Disney’s Frozen 2 (116 million views in 2019), and Disney and Pixar’s Incredibles 2 (113 million views in 2017).

Opening only in theaters on November 27, 2024, Moana 2 reunites Moana and the demigod Maui three years after the events of the first film for an expansive new voyage alongside a crew of unlikely seafarers. After receiving an unexpected call from her wayfinding ancestors, Moana must journey to the far seas of Oceania and into dangerous, long-lost waters for an adventure unlike anything she’s ever faced.

Directed by David Derrick Jr., Jason Hand, and Dana Ledoux Miller, and produced by Christina Chen and Yvett Merino, Moana 2 features music by Grammy® winners Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear, Grammy nominee Opetaia Foa’i, and three-time Grammy winner Mark Mancina.
