The first teaser trailer for new Disney film, Moana, has been released. And we're TOO excited. 

In case you hadn't heard, Moana just so happens to be the first Polynesian Disney Princess. And from the trailer and the first few images, we can already tell that she's beautiful (naturally), sassy and totally kick-ass.

Because, modern day Princesses aren't Damsels anymore, dontcha know?

It's also been announced that 14-year-old Auli'i Cravalho from Oahu will be taking on the voice for the new princess. 

Speaking to People, Auli'i revealed: 'From baby time to now, I wanted to be a Disney princess...'

Even better, The Rock (aka. Dwayne Johnson) will also be starring in the animated movie, playing a demi-god known as Maui.

Not only is it a real life dream-come-true story, but we're pretty chuffed that Disney have chosen to cast someone from Hawaii to play the part.

Moana's tale, which will hit screens in 2016, is about a young woman who uses her skills of survival to sail to a fabled island. Making up an amazing duo, she will be joined on her travels by her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui. 

The internet has been rejoicing at the arrival of a Polynesian character, with the young Princess fitting in perfectly to the classic line-up, which already includes French, Virginia Indian, Arabian, and a Merperson (yes, we're looking at you Ariel).

But, we hear you asking, who will be the actress behind the new character?

This hasn't been announced yet. But rumours are flying around that Dinah Jane, from Fifth Harmony, is tipped to be the voice behind Moana.

One thing we do know for sure is that Dwayne Johnson (AKA The Rock) will be taking on the demi-god Maui. 

This is shaping up to be a pretty epic Disney Pixar offering.
