Take a look inside with the trailer for Disney’s new short film, Inner Workings
Not only is tomorrow the day that you’ll be able to finally catch Walt Disney Animation Studios‘ Moana on the big screen, but also the day that Disney fans get to see a new short film, Inner Workings. Directed by Leo Matsuda (story artist, Big Hero 6 and Wreck-It Ralph), Inner Workings tells story of the internal struggle between a man’s pragmatic, logical side and his free-spirited, adventurous half. Check a trailer for Inner Workings in the player below and catch the full short in theaters before Moana!
Directed Ron Clements and John Musker and boasting original music by Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda alongside Opetaia Foa’i, and Mark Mancina, Moana, meanwhile, follows Auli’i Cravalho as an adventurous teenager who risks everything to sail out on a daring mission to save her people. It is on the South Pacific seas that Moana meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (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.
Jemaine Clement also voices Tamatoa, Rachel House lends her voice to Gramma Tala, Temuera Morrison voices Moana’s father, Chief Tui, Nicole Scherzinger is Moana’s mother, Sina, and Alan Tudyk is behind the voice of Heihei. The roster of characters also includes the Kakamora, an intense team of crazy, coconut-armored pirates who will stop at nothing to get what they want.
