Disney Animation announced the follow-up to Moana in February. The trailer comes over a year after Johnson, 52, announced the film will also receive a live-action adaptation, currently scheduled for release in 2026.

When Disney revealed Moana 2 was in the works in February, the studio also unveiled a short first look in which Cravalho's princess character blows into a conch shell on the beach.

“Moana remains an incredibly popular franchise,” said Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger in a previous statement. In 2023, the first installment was the most-streamed movie of the year, according to Nielsen.

David Derrick Jr. makes his directorial debut with Moana 2 as its director and writer after working with Disney on a number of its animated films in recent years.

Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa’i return as songwriters and composers from the original, while The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical’s Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear will replace Lin-Manuel Miranda as additional songwriters.

"That’s an official wrap (for now) on MAUI’s portion of our upcoming MOANA 2," he wrote.
