Moana is shattering records at the box office and this week it was nominated for two Golden Globes this morning including Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for “How Far I’ll Go”. The movie is full of heart, passion and will be an instant favorite. Disney is sharing the clip of How Far I’ll go with fans as well as reactions to the nominations below:
“In our 40-year careers, no film has been such a labor of love or more satisfying than ‘Moana,’ about a young girl who saves the world. We’re so deeply honored that the hard work of the artists and cast is recognized by the HFPA.”
-‘Moana’ Directors Ron Clements & John Musker, Producer Osnat Shurer
“Gracias. Merci. Grazie. Danke sehr. Mahalo. Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this tremendous honor. Congratulations to my fellow nominees. Over two years ago, I was lucky enough to have been given my dream job, writing songs for a Disney animated film, alongside the amazing Opetaia Foa’i & Mark Mancina. Today, for Moana to be recognized for what we created is truly beyond comprehension. ‘How Far I’ll Go’ not only embodies the spirit of our heroine but the central lesson from the film—dream big, listen to your gut, don’t give up, never forget where you came from, and one day you might just save the world.”

Official Moana Trailer:
Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auliʻi Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”) and produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016.
