Hawaiian Airlines, in collaboration with The Walt Disney Studios, unveiled Saturday the first of three custom Airbus A330 aircraft being adorned with imagery from the highly anticipated, CG-animated comedy adventure “Moana.”

The inaugural decal design features four characters from the movie on Hawaiian’s fuselage as they take off on a wayfinding journey, including the demigod Maui, the adventurous teenager Moana, and her two friends: Heihei the rooster and Pua the pig.

Dwayne Johnson, the voice of demigod Maui, and local-born Auli‘i Cravalho, the voice of Moana, were among the first to see the design when the plane was revealed earlier in a hangar at the airline’s home base at Honolulu International Airport.

Hawaiian will reveal two additional livery designs next month featuring custom-made “Moana” decals.

The overhead luggage bins on all three “Moana”-themed Airbus A330s are also being decorated with characters and artwork from the film.

The planes will fly on Hawaiian’s regularly scheduled U.S. domestic routes as well as to international destinations including Brisbane and Sydney, Australia; Osaka and Tokyo, Japan; and Auckland, New Zealand through March of 2017.

“Moana” will open in theaters Wednesday, Nov. 23.
