Lin-Manuel Miranda Likely for Role in Mary Poppins Sequel

Lin-Manuel Miranda and 'Zootopia' Director Byron Howard Working on a Secret Disney Project

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Lin-Manuel Miranda has had plenty to do since leaving the Hamilton stage and joining up with Disney. As well as composing music for Moana, he will co-star in Mary Poppins Returns, and is on the team for the live-action version of The Little Mermaid.

Now, it's been revealed that he will also be working closely with Zootopia co-director Byron Howard on a new, secret animated film for the studio. “That’s the fun thing about working with someone and having it go well — you go, ‘Okay, what else can we do?'” he said in an interview with Vulture. “[Disney chief creative officer John] Lasseter took me aside and said, ‘I have an idea: Here’s Byron, and you guys should start talking.'”

Miranda confirmed that, for The Little Mermaid, "we're in super-early talks - I literally don't have a title for what my job on The Little Mermaid is yet. Right now, it's the guy who wears the 'don't mess it up' hat."
