Walt Disney Pictures has released a clip from the forthcoming animated film musical Moana, featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson sing “You’re Welcome,” a song written by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Watch the clip here:

The full soundtrack is scheduled to be released on CD November 18, in advance of the film’s November 23 release. It's available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

Miranda has written songs for Moana, which “tells the story of a teenage girl from 2,000 years ago who sets sail to find a fabled island. She is joined by the demigod Maui,” voiced by Johnson. The film also features songs by Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa'i.

Phillipa Soo, the Tony-nominated leading lady of the Broadway smash Hamilton, joins her co-star, Miranda, in the film.

Soo, who played Hamilton's long-suffering wife Eliza in the stage musical, plays a villager of Motunui, Moana’s home island, in the film. Soo was the original Natasha in the Off-Broadway hit Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 and can be heard on the original cast album.

Moana, Disney's newest princess, has the voice of 14-year-old Mililani, HI, native Auli’i Cravalho. Cravalho was discovered while singing at a charity event in Oahu.
