Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson makes a triumphant return as the beloved demigod Maui in an exhilarating teaser for the animated sequel, Moana 2

Joined by Auli'i Cravalho reprising her role as the adventurous title character, the teaser hints at an epic voyage across the seas sparked by 'a call from the ancestors.' 

Moana sets out with determination to 'sail to new skies and reconnect our people across the entire ocean.' 

Alongside her companions, Hei Hei The Rooster (voiced by Alan Tudyk) and the lovable pot-belly pig Pua, Moana is taken aback by the unexpected arrival of Maui, the shapeshifter, who pops up on her boat at the most surprising moments.

In one scene aboard Moana's traditional Polynesian boat, known as a wa'a kaulua, tranquility is interrupted by a sudden surprise. 

A mischievous shark bursts from the water's surface, morphing into a bird mid-flight, before assuming the familiar form of Maui, portrayed as muscular and tattooed just like Dwayne.

Landing on the boat's deck, Maui's unexpected appearance leaves Moana both astonished and elated. 

However, her loyal companions, Pua and Hei Hei, may not share the same enthusiasm as Maui jokingly refers to them as a potential 'boat snack' of 'bacon and eggs.' 

The teaser begins with Moana's arrival on shore, where she summons a premonition with a resounding note from a conch shell, setting the stage for the journey ahead.
