Lin-Manuel Miranda said he booked "Moana" on the same day he found out he was going to be a dad
In order to appreciate Moana to it’s fullest potential, there are a few key things to know. First of all, it’s AWESOME. Second, turns out Lin-Manuel Miranda booked Moana on the same day he found out he was going to be a dad. What a spectacular day that must have been!
Additionally, Lin-Manuel’s now 2-year-old son Sebastian knows the soundtrack better than any other movie.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is known for the hit Broadway show Hamilton, but working with Disney was always a dream project for him! Speaking to Deadline, Lin talked about the influence the Mouse House has always held for him:
But the dream got even better.
Landing the Disney job, however, was just one part of an epic day. Lin-Manuel also found out that his wife, Vanessa, was pregnant with their son, Sebastian! That is one amazing streak of luck.
What an amazing tribute to his son. And as Sebastian grows older, he’ll learn all about his father’s amazing career. The songs Lin-Manuel Miranda composes are magical. We hope he wins an Oscar for the soundtrack. Then he will be the youngest EGOT winner of all time! Besides, with his track record, who knows what other amazing things would happen on the day he won.
