Lin-Manuel Miranda is certainly having a moment - a very long Moment. We have Hamilton on stage and the movie adaptation of In the Heights now in cinemas. To come are, among other things, an animated musical, Vivo, with songs and vocals by him and he's also writing additional lyrics for a live-action/CGI remake of Disney's The Little Mermaid. No doubt a full-scale movie version of Hamilton will appear eventually.
