This week, the movie’s trailer received 178 million views in its first 24 hours, more than any previous trailer in the history of Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar, the companies that produce Disney’s animated films. A product of Disney Animation is Moana.

The highest number of trailer views for Disney Animation was Frozen 2 (116 million), while the previous record for Pixar was Inside Out 2 (157 million). Additionally, the Moana 2 teaser outperformed Pixar’s Incredibles 2 (113 million).

The Inside Out 2 movie, which hits theatres on June 14, will come before the Moana 2 trailer. The forthcoming Pixar sequel is estimated to debut between $80 and $85 million, although one service predicts it will surpass $90 million. Disney’s animation studio has been doing well with both films, especially considering Pixar has been having difficulties.

The animated film, which is centred around Moana going out on an unexpected voyage in long-lost waters after receiving a summons from her ancestors, was directed by David Derrick Jr., Jason Hand, and Dana Ledoux Miller. Johnson plays the god Maui once more.

Before being revised as a theatrical sequel, the project was first created as a television series. Moana 2, which features new songs by Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear, is produced by Christina Chen and Yvett Merino.

The live-action Moana version directed by Thomas Kail, which is scheduled to hit theatres on July 10, 2026, is likewise a production of Disney and Johnson.

Moana’s ongoing appeal is demonstrated by the fact that, according to Nielsen, the 2016 release of the picture, which brought in over $687 million worldwide, was the most streamed movie of all time across all platforms in 2023.
