We already knew that Lin-Manuel Miranda was connected to the Star Wars universe (he and J.J. Abrams wrote the cantina song featured in Star Wars: The Force Awakens after all), but you may not have ever expected to see the Broadway star in a galaxy far, far away. But in a new clip, a special look at the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, you can see him in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment.
In the video, which features the series in popular culture as well as celebrities talking about what the movies have meant to them, LMM is seen on what looks like a set in a full Star Wars look. Wearing tan resistance fighter gear, a mustachioed Miranda, who wears a big grin on his face, stands next to Naomi Ackie’s Jannah.
Since the video made its debut on Sunday, people have been questioning whether we’ll see Miranda in the next film.
wait… is Lin Manuel Miranda in the Rise of Skywalker?! Amazing pic.twitter.com/wBRwKgQ2wp
