Los Angeles, June 23 (IANS) Actor-writer Lin-Manuel Miranda is working on an animated musical set in Colombia.
During an interview on “Good Morning America”, the “Hamilton” creator shared that he spent his time in quarantine working on a new animated musical, reports deadline.com.
Miranda said that the untitled project will take place in Colombia, Miranda said.
“I’m actually writing a new animated musical with Disney Animation,” Miranda said.
“I’m collaborating with the ‘Zootopia’ guys and Jared Bush, who wrote ‘Moana’ with me. It’s set in Colombia, in Latin America and that’s all I can say before Bob Iger just shows up in my home,” he added.
