Inner Workings - First-look at Moana short

Inner Workings

Inner Workings, a new short from first-time director Leo Matsuda (story artist for Big Hero 6, Wreck-It Ralph) is the story of the internal struggle between a man’s pragmatic, logical side and his free-spirited, adventurous half.

Created by a small team at Walt Disney Animation Studios in a unique, fast-paced style that blends CG and traditional hand-drawn animation, the short explores the importance of finding balance in daily life.

Inner Workings opens on December 2, 2016 in front of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana.

About Moana

Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast South Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one today knows why.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated adventure about a spirited teenager who sails out on a daring mission to prove herself a master wayfinder and fulfil her ancestors’ unfinished quest.

During her journey, she meets the once-mighty demi-god Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), and together, they traverse the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous fiery creatures and impossible odds.
