Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is nominated for a 2017 Best Original Song Oscar for the tune “How Far I’ll Go” from the Disney animated film Moana, has released a clip of a song that was cut from the film, “Warrior Face.”
Miranda joined original Hamilton performers Christopher Jackson (George Washington) and Phillipa Soo (Eliza Schuyler) on the number, which is accompanied by storyboard pencil test animations of the cut scene, as first published on the Vulture.
Watch the clip here:
Miranda is scheduled to appear on the February 26 Academy Awards broadcast. The Tony-winning creator of Hamilton and In the Heights will perform “How Far I’ll Go” in a duet with the film’s star, Auli’i Cravalho.
If Miranda wins, he will join the exclusive club of people who have won Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards, and the even more rarefied group of people who have also won a Pulitzer Prize.
