UPDATE:Nicole Scherzinger is not the featured vocalist for the ‘Moana’ International Trailer.

Disney Animation has enlisted some top-tier talent for their upcoming seafaring project Moana, and that doesn’t even count the two main characters.

Moana is about a young girl who sets out on a great adventure to save her people and become a master wayfinder along the way. Moana herself is voiced by Auli’i Cravalho, and she will be joined on the project by Dwayne Johnson. Johnson voices Maui, who uses his Demigod abilities to help Moana on her journey.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Disney Animation revealed the rest of the delightful cast, which includes names like Jemaine Clement, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, and Alan Tudyk. The film is being directed by Rob Clements and John Musker, who were also responsible for two of Disney’s past massive hits, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.

“Our assembled voice cast for this film is beyond our wildest dreams,” said Musker. “We are so fortunate to have this group of talented actors, many from Oceania, breathing life into their characters.”

Added Clements, “We are so thankful to have found such extraordinary people who not only capture the voices of these characters, they elevate them in every way.”

You can find out exactly who the new cast is playing in the official character descriptions below, and see them in action in the gallery. Moana sets sail into theatres on November 23rd.

Jemaine Clement (“The BFG,” “Despicable Me,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” Flight of the Conchords) provides the voice of Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab who lives in Lalotai, the realm of monsters. The conceited crustacean wants to be more than a “bottom feeder” and overcompensates for this perceived shortcoming by covering himself in all things shiny.

Rachel House (“Whale Rider,” “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”) lends her voice to Gramma Tala, Moana’s confidante and best friend, who shares her granddaughter’s special connection to the ocean. Although her son Tui, the chief of Motunui, is a no-nonsense leader, Gramma Tala most definitely dances to the beat of her own drum.

Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Once Were Warriors,” “Six Days, Seven Nights”) voices Moana’s father, Chief Tui, the gregarious and well-respected leader of the people of Motunui Island. Chief Tui wants Moana to follow in his footsteps as leader of their people, but fears his daughter’s draw to the ocean and the world that lies beyond their reef.

Nicole Scherzinger (Grammy®-nominated singer, West End’s “Cats”) voices Moana’s mother, Sina, who always has her daughter’s back. Playful, sharp and strong-willed, Sina appreciates Moana’s longing to be on the water, but also wants to protect her daughter from the fabled dangers beyond the reef.

Alan Tudyk, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ lucky charm (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Big Hero 6”), is behind the voice of Heihei. Heihei is one dumb rooster—the village idiot, in fact. When the clueless chicken accidently stows away on Moana’s canoe, he lands a front-row seat for her epic journey.

Kakamora, an intense team of crazy, coconut-armored pirates who will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Pua, Moana’s loyal pet pig with puppy energy and an innocent puppy brain
