Disney has recently released the official Japanese trailer for their upcoming CG film Moana. The Japanese trailer is worth watching due to its softer tone, when compared to the highly kinetic English trailer. The Japanese trailer is presented with a more somber music and features the titular character as a toddler, when she first had her magical encounter with the ocean. The trailer ends with Moana in her current age during the film. You can check out the trailer below:
Moana will be opening in Japan on March 10, 2017, with the US getting its screening earlier at November 23, 2016.
The Official Synopsis:
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.
