Between composing songs for Moana, teaming with Alan Menken for a live-action Little Mermaid, and playing a lamplighter named Jack in Mary Poppins Returns, Lin-Manuel Miranda is now firmly a part of the Disney family. And it looks like his own family approves.

One day after Disney released a new clip from Moana featuring the song “We Know the Way,” Miranda shared a video of his young son, Sebastian, watching the footage.

“You wrote these lyrics with Mark [Mancina] and Opetaia [Foa‘i] the same weekend you found out you’d be a father,” he tweeted on Tuesday. “Now look.”

Sebastian definitely seems to be a fan of his father’s work (and his laptop). “Also, you’re never getting your computer back,” Miranda added. “It’s his.”

 

 

Moana, featuring the voices of Auliʻi Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson, sails into theaters on Nov. 23. Join Sebastian in watching “We Know the Way” in the clip below.
