We just doin’ a little sanging over here or as we say in the streets, “I’m spittin’ that fire bruh!”🎤🔥. A blast collaborating with the musical genius himself and my Puerto Rican twin Lin-Manuel Miranda. Too much fun! #YoureWelcome #MoanaMondays 🌊🎼

Disney’s Moana is all set to premiere in theaters next month, which means there’s still some time between then and now for the film’s cast to reward us with more teasers. The latest has been released by none other than The Rock himself, who co-stars in the film as the demigod Maui alongside newcomer Auli’i Cravalho as the titular heroine.
The above clip, which The Rock posted to his Instagram account (where he’ll be sharing more teasers from behind-the-scenes), features one of the songs co-written by Lin-Manuel Miranda for the film, entitled “You’re Welcome.” In it, Maui sings to Moana about all he’s done for the world since before she was even born–makes sense, considering he’s a demigod and all. It should be no surprise that the song, which doesn’t play in its entirety, is super adorable–but who knew The Rock could sing like that?
Disney also released a second clip which delves into the circumstances behind Moana and Maui’s first meeting, which you can watch below:
I wasn’t necessarily on the fence about seeing Moana, but these scenes just renewed my need to get my butt into the theater. How about you?
