A sequel to the beloved “Moana” may potentially feature the first Latina pricess to be represented in an animated film from Disney. The company has been recently questioned for not having enough diversity within their animated work, so Lin-Manuel Miranda’s father Luis has taken it upon himself to contact Disney execs in order to see if they could arrange something in the future. It is the hope of the Miranda family that Disney will agree to a follow-up film in relation to “Moana” that will feature the first every Latina Disney princess.
- Disney is possibly having talks to have its first-ever Latina Princess and Lin-Manuel Miranda could possibly be a motivation behind this new character.
- When it comes to the question of diversity, there has been a lot of debate about whether Disney is very diverse enough in characters.
- According to Miranda’s father, talks are ongoing between Disney and Miranda about making a sequel to the film, “Moana.”
“Lin-Manuel Miranda was a music co-writer on “Moana,” which could make for a good connection to the lyricist, playwright, singer, and actor creating a follow-up film with a possible new character.”
