Moana broke barriers when she became the first Polynesian Disney lead. In Moana, the daughter of the chieftain of a tribe is tasked by the ocean to bring a mystical relic to a goddess and save her people. The movie has received critical and commercial success, especially for its moving soundtrack. Now, one of its songs, “You’re Welcome,” has a music video, featuring Jordan Fisher and Lin-Manuel Miranda!
Watch the music video below:
In Moana, the song is sung by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who plays the role of Maui, a shapeshifting demigod who helps Moana in her journey. In the official music video, Hamilton star Fisher takes over for Johnson, with a little help from Hamilton creator Miranda, who also co-wrote the official soundtrack.
The Moana soundtrack was well-received, with its lead single “How Far I’ll Go” receiving nominations for Best Original Song at the Golden Globe Awards and the Academy Awards.
