Disney’s international trailer for Moana is a little different from the usual trailer. Instead of the typical montage of clips taken from the different moments of the film, this trailer shows an important scene in which the title character meets the ocean as an adorable baby.

The footage in the trailer was shown to fans at the Disney D23 Expo last year, and director Ron Clements explained back then why they made the choice of the ocean itself playing such an important role, according to Comicbook.com.

“There is one other very important character we want to mention in this movie, the Pacific Ocean,” Clements said. “When they visited the South Pacific for research, they saw that the people there spoke of the ocean like “a person or a friend.” They make the conversation between Moana and the Ocean a two-way process in the film, as demonstrated in the clip above, with the water acting playful with the little girl.”

Moana stars Dwayne Johnson as the god Maui, and introduces newcomer Auli’i Cravalho as Moana. It also features the music from Opetaia Foa’i, Mark Mancina, and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Moana is set to be released November 23, 2016.
