Disney’s new age animation has found success with titles such as Frozen, Wreck it Ralph, Tangled, and their latest hit: Zootopia. Zootopia found huge success, surpassing $1 billion take-home for Disney during its run at the global box office. Disney’s next film is Moana, which has been composed by none other than Lin-Manuel Miranda.
During an interview with Vulture magazine, Miranda revealed that he and co director of Zootopia, Byron Howard, have teamed up and are in the planning stages for a future Disney animated film. By today’s standards, a collaboration between Miranda and Howard is pretty much the ultimate Disney animation dream-team.
“That’s the fun thing about working with someone and having it go well — you go, ‘Okay, what else can we do?’ Lasseter took me aside and said, ‘I have an idea: Here’s Byron, and you guys should start talking.’ We literally haven’t gotten in the room yet, but we’re plotting.”
“We’re in super-early talks — I literally don’t have a title for what my job on The Little Mermaid is yet. Right now, it’s the guy who wears the ‘don’t mess it up’ hat. If I could sign a contract with that job title on it, that would be great! But that’s sort of where we are.”
