VIDEO: ‘Moana’ songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda sings Disney songs on Instagram

in Disney, Movies, Movies & TV

Hamilton‘s Lin Manuel Miranda is no stranger to the wonder of Disney movies.

In a bit of creative promotion for Disney’s newest animated feature Moana (of which he has composed a song for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson), the Tony Award winner commandeered the Disney Animation Instagram — the fans dubbed it #LINSTAGRAM. So Miranda sat there singing a bunch of Disney songs ranging from “well known” to “totally obscure”. The result is insanely charming.

Here are some of the best ones:

Not only has he worked with Disney on “Moana” but he also contributed a song that can be heard at Maz Kanata’s castle in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and will also co-star in the recently announced sequel to “Mary Poppins” as a lamplighter named Jack.

For all things fun and awesome, stick with ITM!
