Moana Might Be the Best Adventure Film This Year

Another trailer for Disney’s next animated musical, Moana, has hit the interwebs,

and holy crap does it look good. I’m taking it with a grain of salt, because I’ve been disappointed by great trailers before (Man of Steel), but considering the incredible roll Disney’s been on since Tangled, I have a lot of hope this continuing the quality of what I’m calling Disney’s Second Golden Age. Check it out:

Man, that water looks god damned amazing, especially with all the different lighting FX they’re using. The chemistry between Dwayne Johnson and Auli’i Cravalho is incredible, and the story looks like it’s going to be a true adventure film, which is just terribly exciting.

Moana hits theaters on November 23. What did you think of the trailer?

Mike Fatum
Referred to as a God Among Men, the Greatest Man that Ever Lived, and That Dude Over There…No, The Dude with the Long Hair and the Goatee…Yes, That Guy, Mike has grown up being known and loved around his apartment. In addition to being a successful film director and editor, he loves video games, movies, comic books, board games, and his wife and cat. He’s been friends with Jarys for over a decade now, and they started hosting a radio show together on college that became the genesis for the Ace of Geeks Podcast. When he realized he had so many talented friends who could write, the Podcast became an entertainment website, and here we are.
