Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator and star of the currently hot Broadway musical “Hamilton,” has become a part of J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
Miranda and Abrams co-penned a number for this film’s equivalent of the iconic cantina scene in the original “Star Wars”. The scene in question is expected to take place in the residence of the alien character played by Lupita N’yongo.
Miranda also penned Disney’s upcoming animated feature “Moana”. Abrams talked about the experience on last night’s episode of Jimmy Fallon’s talk show.
