Following the December 9-11 weekend, in which Lin-Manuel Miranda's Moana was the No. 1 highest-grossing film—taking in $18,533,804 at the box office— reports that Sony Pictures Animation has fast-tracked Miranda's next animated project, Vivo.

The film, which was previously a project for DreamWorks Animation, features 11 songs from the composer of the Pulitzer Prize-winning phenomenon Hamilton. The script will be penned by Miranda's In the Heights collaborator, Quiara Alegría Hudes.

Vivo, which will be produced by Lisa Stewart and executive-produced by Laurence Mark, will feature direction by Kirk De Micco. Sony chief Kristine Belson has set a December 18, 2020, release date.

The animated film, according to the industry website, focuses “on the tale of a capuchin monkey with a thirst for adventure—and a passion for music—that makes a treacherous passage from Havana to Miami to fulfill his destiny.”
