A new poster for “Moana 2” has been released, along with the announcement of a new trailer dropping this week.

“Moana 2” Poster

Walt Disney Animation Studios has shared the first poster in anticipation of the release of “Moana 2.” In the poster, Moana can be seen in the background, on the beach, seemingly blowing into a conch shell. In the foreground, we see Maui’s hook stuck into the sand next to Moana’s oar. Carved into the oar is a heart and Maui’s hook. The two items form a “2” together.

The film will hit theaters on November 27, 2024 and will see the return of Auli’i Cravalho voicing Moana, and Dwayne Johnson as the voice of Maui.

A trailer for the animated sequel will be released on May 29. Along with the image, Johnson shared the following post on X (formerly Twitter):

“Moana 2” follows the 2016 film, “Moana.” The success of the original film has led to the inclusion of Moana frequently in the Disney Parks, namely Journey of Water Inspired by Moana at EPCOT, along with Moana character meet and greets. The official description of the film is as follows:

In Walt Disney Animation Studios’ all-new epic animated musical, “Moana 2,” three years since her first voyage, Moana is on an expansive journey in search of people beyond the shores of Motunui.

Joined by Maui and a brand-new crew of unlikely seafarers, Moana must journey to the far seas of Oceania and into dangerous, long-lost waters for an adventure unlike anything she’s ever faced.

In addition to the sequel, which was originally planned as a Disney+ series, a live-action retelling of “Moana” is in the works, with Johnson set to reprise his role as Maui. Cravalho will not return as Moana, but instead serves as executive producer on the film. Co-directors of the animated feature, Ron Clements and John Musker, are not involved in the live-action retelling.
