But the Tony winner has also composed a secret song for the new film as well.

Miranda tweeted about the music Tuesday evening: “Now it can be told??” wrote Miranda, who said that he and director J.J. Abrams “wrote a lil music for a planet” in the film, and added: “It’s got a nice beat & you can dance to it. Can’t wait to see it this weekend!”

Previously Miranda wrote music for Abrams’ last Star Wars venture, The Force Awakens (“Jabba Flow,” the music playing in the bar where we meet Maz Kanata).

In the meantime, you can see Miranda in his role in HBO’s new fantasy series His Dark Materials.

The Rise of Skywalker opens Dec. 20.
