Watch Alessia Cara in “How Far I’ll Go” Music Video from Disney’s Moana

The upcoming animated film, Moana, is latest highly anticipated Disney release to be hitting theaters soon. One of the most exciting parts about Moana is that Hamilton’s Lin Manuel Miranda has penned original music for the film, including “How Far I’ll Go.” 2016 breakout artist Alessia Cara performs the end-credits version of “How Far I’ll Go” in the official music video above.

The beach-y clip, directed by Aya Tanimura, sets the right inspirational tone for Moana, and well, as for the song, who can resist new original music from Miranda himself? The film is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, and the story follows the life-changing journey of a tenacious 16-year-old who teams up with the mighty demigod Maui (voiced by Dwayne Johnson) to fulfill an ancient quest.

The Moana soundtrack is available on November 18, five days before the film arrives in theaters. Watch the trailer below.
