As we’ve pointed out before, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the busiest men in Hollywood. According to ScreenCrush, however, that doesn’t stop him from dedicating time to his social media empire.

Johnson is very active on several platforms, including Twitter, where he recently debuted the first poster for Moana, Disney’s latest offering. He also teased the film’s first trailer, which will apparently arrive this Sunday.

The film follows a young woman (Moana) and a demi-god (Maui) as they journey to a legendary island, and this simple, yet stunning poster does a great job of conveying the sense of excitement and adventure that underpins the tale. Both principles are pictured on a makeshift sailboat, perched atop the crest of a crystal-blue swell. “The ocean is calling.” reads the text, and the full image is embedded below.


If it you’re craving something a bit more substantial, however, you don’t have long to wait for the teaser. Arriving this weekend, it should give us a better idea of what Moana (Auli’i Cravalho), Maui (Johnson), and company have in store for us.

Fresh off the massive hit that was Zootopia, Disney will be looking to hit a home run with this one and keep its momentum going.

As for the actor who spilled the beans, Johnson has a dizzying number of projects on his slate, including Fast 8, Rampage, Baywatch, Jumanji, and Doc Savage. His latest — Central Intelligence — is an buddy spy comedy and pairs him with pint-sized comedian Kevin Hart. That film hits theaters June 17.

As for Moana, the animated adventure will sail into theaters everywhere November 23
