Catering to those fans, Disney has released a new Mary Poppins Returns sneak peek video that includes Miranda belting out a new song from the movie. Check it out below.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is best known as the writer and star of the Broadway smash Hamilton, but pretty soon, he may be just as well-known for his work in Disney musicals.
