Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Annecy International Animated Film Festival with the renowned filmmaking team Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess and the Frog”) to present a never-before-seen exclusive preview of the upcoming comedy adventure film “Moana,” which features an adventurous teenager who, with help from demigod Maui, sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and save her people.

Clements and Musker will unveil new artwork and work-in-progress sequences from the film, and showcase the extensive research their team conducted to bring authenticity to their most ambitious production to date.

As for the animated short, Inner Workings, the plot tells the tale “of the internal struggle between a man’s pragmatic, logical side and his free-spirited, adventurous half,” according to the press release. The short will play before the film, when it heads to theaters.

Though we do have a handful of months ahead of us before we can see the actual film, there is much to look forward to. What are you most excited about?
