Lin-Manuel Miranda Will Have a Cameo Appearance in ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker‘. Composer, lyricist, singer, actor, director and producer, are just some of the many titles and hats worn by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Disney fans know him best for his outstanding work on projects such as Moana, Mary Poppins Returns, and The Odd Life of Timothy Green, but Miranda is also famous for creating the instant Broadway hit, Hamilton and for his work on In the Heights.
Recently, Lucasfilm shared a ‘behind the scenes’ look at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, set to premiere December 20th. Just shy of a minute into the video we see a shot of Star Wars newcomer, Naomi Ackie (Jannah) alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda wearing a Resistance member ensemble. Confirming Lin-Manuel has a cameo in the final film of the Skywalker Saga.
His appearance in the film does not go unwarranted. Lin-Manuel Miranda was approached by Director, J.J. Abrams to co-write “Jabba Flow” for Maz Kanata’s Cantina in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The pair even performed the piece together in Chicago, IL outside the theater Hamilton was performing in at the time.
“[The song] is actually written in Huttese, Jabba the Hutt’s language,” Miranda said at the time. “And I actually went to this website that had a Huttese glossary of terms, and [my song] translates to ‘No, lover lover, it wasn’t me.’ It’s literally a Shaggy intergalactic remix!”
It’s unclear exactly where Lin-Manuel Miranda will appear in the film, but it will be exciting to look for his cameo once the film premieres December 20, 2019.
Check out this spoiler free synopsis for The Rise of Skywalker: “The surviving Resistance faces the First Order once more as Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron’s journey continues. With the power and knowledge of generations behind them, the final battle commences.”
