It's been a big month for Lin-Manuel Miranda.
The Puerto Rican songwriter, best known for creating the award-winning Broadway musical Hamilton, recently made his feature directorial debut with Netflix's Tick, Tick... Boom! - a film based on the stage musical of the same name by Jonathan Larson.
And this week, Miranda's latest project, Disney animated musical Encanto, is hitting Australian cinemas.
Watch the trailer for Encanto below. Post continues after video.
The new release, which features eight original songs written by Miranda, follows the story of the Madrigals, a family who live in a magical house named Casita in the mountains of Colombia.
As the story goes, the Madrigals are no ordinary family.
At five years old, each of the Madrigals are granted a magical gift - from changing the weather to conversing with animals to shape-shifting.
But teenager Mirabel, voiced by Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Stephanie Beatriz, is different.
Unlike her siblings, Mirabel didn't receive a unique magical gift.
For Lin-Manuel Miranda, who previously worked on the Disney animated musical Moana, Encanto was an opportunity to join a Disney project from the ground level.
In fact, after working on Moana, Miranda told the studio: "If you’re doing a Latina-themed anything, I’ll sharpen pencils; I just want to be in the room. And I want to be on the ground floor so I can help with the story."
Speaking to Mamamia during the film's virtual junket, Miranda shared that his early involvement in the film was "so exciting" as it allowed him to shape the story and the music simultaneously.
