It looks like Johnson is getting his most adorable role yet in Moana, the upcoming Disney animated film that just dropped its first teaser.

The film tells the story of title character Moana, a teenager from the Pacific islands who embarks on a voyage to save her tribe. Johnson plays Maui, a demigod with various magical powers who aids her on this quest. It is shaping up to rank among some of the best Disney classics, as the directing duo behind this film also broughtThe Little Mermaid and Aladdin to the screen. And the film will also feature original songs from Lin-Manuel Miranda, who just won nearly every kind of musical award there is for his Broadway smash Hamilton. So needless to say, prepare for some heart-warming cuteness.
