Disney’s “Moana” will be preceded by the new animated Disney short presented by Walt Disney Animation Studios “Inner Workings,” which takes audiences inside the human body, where all of the organs have a mind of their own. This short is directed by Leo Matsuda (story artist for Big Hero 6 and Wreck-it Ralph) and produced by Sean Lurie. “Inner Workings” is the story of the internal struggle between a man’s pragmatic, logical side and his free-spirited, adventurous side.

“In The El Capitan Theatre’s exclusive tradition, audiences will be treated to a concert of Disney music, a stage appearance by Moana herself,” said Ed Collins, General Manager of The El Capitan Theatre. “And with the El Capitan Theatre Organist as well as the Short ‘Inner Workings’ — it is a very full program on entertainment only available at The El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.”

Alright west coast peeps, will you be seeing Disney’s “Moana” at the classic El Capitan Theatre?
