Epic, sweeping narratives are the hallmark of Disney and Disney Pixar film-making, and the November 2016 release Moana is no exception. In search of teaser key art that breaks the mold – just like the film’s heroine – Hamagami/Carroll and our illustration partner PicturePlane created a beautiful and vast seascape reflecting the powerful beauty seen throughout the film.
Since this is a teaser poster, we had to hint at the story instead of revealing the entire gist or broader themes. By focusing on the environment and not the characters as much – although revealing them from behind – we tell just enough of the story to build some intrigue.
Keep your eyes out for an update later this year as we unfold the main theatrical key art, and then the Academy nomination campaign artwork.
