Disney Animation has surpassed Pixar in recent years as producers of some of the finest animated films around. From Tangled and Frozen to Zootopia and Wreck it Ralph, Disney is on a roll. And on Monday, they released a teaser trailer to their latest offering: Moana.

Watch the trailer here

Here’s a synopsis:

In ancient Oceania in the South Pacific, the young Moana is a born navigator who sets sail in search of a fabled island. During her journey, she teams up with her hero and legendary demi-god Maui.

The film promises to be a classic Disney adventure, filled with breathtaking visuals, strong characters, great music and a warm tone.

The trump card here is not Dwayne Johnson for once. It is the man of the year: Lin-Manuel Miranda. The genius behind the hit Broadway musical Hamilton is a co-composer for Moana, and for a many around the world who haven’t had access to Hamilton, this will be their first experience of his work.
