What’s a Broadway star to do when given the key to Disney Animation’s Instagram? Why, sing Disney songs, of course! Lin-Manuel Miranda, the original star and creator of Hamilton, sang melodies from Aladdin, Newsies, Mulan, The Little Mermaid, and 1954’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea when he took over the account Sunday.

Miranda took over the Instagram feed ahead of the premiere of a new sneak peek for Moana, featuring Dwayne Johnson and music by the Hamilton maven himself. “Okay, name the Disney movie,” he said in an video before singing “A Whale of a Tale” from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

See more videos, including renditions of “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” and “Under the Sea,” below.






Update: Miranda also teamed with Johnson, who voices a demigod in Moana, for a rendition of “Gaston” from Beauty and the Beast. They took some liberties with the lyrics, singing, “As a specimen, yes, he’s intimidating. Oh my god, that is The Rock.” 


Miranda has a solid relationship with the Mouse House, as he’ll also star as a street lamplighter named Jack opposite Emily Blunt in Mary Poppins Returns, scheduled for theaters on Dec. 25, 2018. He had fun with the “no character limit” during his Instagram takeover and posted lines from the famous Poppins number “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” 

Elsewhere, Miranda snapped a pic of Mary Poppins Returns composers Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman. “Allow me to give you the scoop 2 years early,” he wrote, “the songs are BRILLIANT. I’m so thrilled to get to sing ’em.”
