Well, they took their sweet time, but after a couple of teaser trailers and extended TV spots, Disney has finally released the first full trailer for their upcoming animated movie Moana. And it's a riot.

The movie stars Auli’i Cravalho as the movie’s titular heroine, who joins forces with her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), in order to seek out a fabled island in the South Pacific. On their epic sea voyage, they will encounter some ginormous sea creatures, amazing underworlds and ancient folklore. Like the Lava-Witch.

Helmed by the directing duo of Ron Clements and John Musker (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog), Moana also features the voice acting talents of Alan Tudyk, Nicole Scherzinger, Temuera Morrison and Jemaine Clement. Have a look at the stunning new trailer below! It's clobberin Maui time:

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.

Moana will sail into theaters on Nov. 23
