Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the lyrics and Dwayne Johnson sings “You’re Welcome” in one of the new video clips released from the upcoming animated Disney movie, Moana. Johnson unveiled the first sneak peek at “You’re Welcome’ via instagram, saying, “We just doin’ a little sanging over here or as we say in the streets, ‘I’m spittin’ that fire bruh!’??. A blast collaborating with the musical genius himself and my Puerto Rican twin Lin-Manuel Miranda. Too much fun!”

Johnson provides the voice of Maui in the new Disney film directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (The Princess and the Frog, Hercules). The cast also includes newcomer Auli’i Cravalho, Jemaine Clement, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, and Alan Tudyk. Disney’s set a November 23, 2016 theatrical release date.

The Plot: 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 exactly 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 (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.
