Lin-Manuel Miranda is making our Disney dreams come true.
The Hamilton star is teaming up with legendary composer, Alan Menken, for Disney’s live-action version of The Little Mermaid, Deadline reports.
Miranda will be taking on songwriting duties with Menken and supervise the story development with Marc Flatt. Other details of his role in the film are still in the works.
Miranda calls himself a self-proclaim Disney fan, and even named newborn son after “Sebastian the crab.” But, The Little Mermaid isn’t the only Disney project on the musical genius' plate. Miranda will also be playing a new character in Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel to the Disney classic, and also wrote a song for the upcoming animated feature, Moana.
All we have to say is that after Hamilton, we’re sure that Miranda is going to blow our minds with this movie.
