"THURSDAY I debut the trailer on @GMA! #MOANA," he continued, stating that he will release the new clip on Good Morning America.

The accompanying poster features Johnson's character Maui alongside Princess Moana, voiced by newcomer Auli'i Cravalho, as they stand in the middle of the ocean with giant waves parting off to the sides.

Moana, set for release on Nov. 23, will also feature music from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

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," it continues.
