Now that you’ve seen Moana, it’s time to get the Soundtrack on heavy rotation along with your Hamilton Mixtape 😉
The music does not disappoint, and how could it with the amazing team of Lin-Manuel Miranda (yes, the Hamilton guy), Mark Mancina, Opetia Fao’i and the band Te-Vaka. In the opening of the movie, where we see the iconic Disney Castle, you will hear a unique opening sung by Olivia Fao’i, the daughter of Opetia.
The song “You’re Welcome” is performed by Dwayne Johnson and written by musical genius Lin-Manual Miranda.

Lin-Manuel also performs demos and outtakes of the following songs that are only available on the Deluxe version:

The diverse and dynamic team behind the film’s inspired music includes Tony®- and Grammy®-winning songwriter/composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, who counts among his credits Broadway’s Pulitzer Prize-winning and multiple Tony-winning “Hamilton” and the Tony-winning “In the Heights.” The creative team also includes three-time Grammy®-winning composer Mark Mancina (“Speed,” “Tarzan” and the Oscar®-winning “Training Day”) and Opetaia Foa‘i, the founder and lead singer of Te Vaka, a winner of numerous world music awards.
Maui, voiced by Dwayne Johnson, is a demigod—half god, half mortal, all awesome. Charismatic and funny, he wields a magical fishhook that allows him to shapeshift into all kinds of animals and pull up islands from the sea.
During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli’i Cravalho) meets the once-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.
MOANA arrives on shore everywhere November 23rd!
