Just as Disney fans far and wide gear up for Finding Dory's release next week, the animation powerhouse is already ramping up the efforts behind its next big adventure, this time with the valiant seafaring Pacific Island adventure Moana.

Although we've seen a few images and some concept art for the movie already, today Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson shared the first official poster for Moana to whet (wet?) our appetites. Check it out below:

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s the first look at the incredible @DisneyAnimation movie we've been working very hard to bring to life for the world to enjoy. It's a visual and singing journey unlike anything you have ever seen before. And get ready.. THIS SUNDAY I'll bring you the EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK teaser trailer for . Our journey has only just begun...

If this poster is any indication, Moana is going to be another stunning animated classic from Disney, having been written and directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, best known for their work on Disney's 2009 animated musical The Princess and the Frog.

Much of the voice cast and characters have been kept quiet, but in addition to The Rock, who plays Maui, the movie also stars newcomer Auli'i Cravalho as the lead protagonist Moana. Here's the official synopsis, courtesy of IMDb:

A young woman uses her navigational talents to set sail for a fabled island. Joining her on the adventure is her hero, the legendary demi-god Maui.

I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait to answer the ocean's call.

Moana will reach theaters on November 23.
