Gone Fishing is an animated short featuring the characters of Disney's 2016 animated film Moana. It premiered on February 21, 2017 with the release of the Digital copy of Moana.
Some of the animation seen in the short was intended to be used as a trailer for Moana. However, as direction changed, the idea was scrapped. It was later decided that the already-completed animation would be used and expanded upon to create a new, standalone short.
On Motunui, Maui tries to catch a fish with his magical fishhook, only to be comically foiled by the ocean.
