Lin-Manuel Miranda’s next project is penning songs for Disney’s upcoming animated film Moana, which stars Auli’i Cravalho as the titular Moana, who sets on an adventure to help her family, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a demi-god. It already sounds awesome, but to get some more press, Lin-Manuel Miranda took over Disney Animation’s Instagram account today.Welp, it worked. Fans are clamoring to the account to watch Miranda sing his favorite Disney songs. Of course, he couldn’t do it alone, so Cravalho and Johnson helped him out, and in the course of doing so made our favorite versions of “Gaston” and “Under the Sea” ever.
If you need us, we’ll be by our laptops waiting for the Miranda/Johnson fanfic that’s about to pop up.
