What do you get when you mix “Hamilton” superstar Lin-Manuel Miranda and Disney? PURE AWESOMENESS!
Miranda is officially part of the musical team for Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” live-action film!
And we’re super excited!
According to Deadline, Miranda will be working with music composer Alan Menken, the mastermind behind Disney classics like “Under the Sea,” “A Whole New World,” and “Be Our Guest” to create songs and music for this live-action “Little Mermaid” masterpiece which is set to be released in 2017. We can only imagine what these two creative geniuses will come up with.
This Disney addition to Miranda’s growing list of projects is only proof the man is on fire! Just this year alone, he’s already won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album and Tony Awards for Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Score and Best Musical — all for “Hamilton.”
If you’re anything like us and can’t wait for this live-action movie to hit theaters, check these out:
Miranda serenades us with a few lyrics from the 1989 hit film and he does it perfectly.
Pretty cool, right?
Fun fact, Miranda loves “The Little Mermaid” so much so that he named his son Sebastian after the crab in the movie.
So cute ❤️.
No release date yet on the film, but in the meantime, we’ll just keep that “Hamilton” soundtrack on repeat.
