Lin Manuel Miranda with Ron Clements and John Musker

Disney Animation Studios let Moana composer Lin-Manuel Miranda take over their Instagram and it was glorious. A long time Disney films fan, Miranda spent his time in between shooting content for Moana singing snippets of beloved Disney Classics.

As Hamilton fans know, Miranda has often given The Little Mermaid credit for being his inspiration to make music. His fanboying at working with Ron Clements and John Musker, who directed Little Mermaid, came out in his gleeful videos. Here’s the compilation of clips and songs which he took requests from Twitter to perform during his #Linstagram take over. Some even have special guests.
