This Japanese Trailer for Disney's Moana Has a Real Miyazaki-ness to It

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Hey, if you’re going to advertise an animated film in Japan, why not release footage reminiscent of its greatest anime director?

This trailer is actually a single scene, where Moana (a spunky young heroine) discovers her magical bond with the ocean (i.e., nature), and is just a visual delight (something Hayao Miyazaki’s films do not lack). Call me crazy, but I think Disney’s newest animated feature might do all right in Japan. Unfortunately, it won’t open there until next March, while we’ll get to see it on November 23.
