With the release of STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER tantalizingly close, let’s bring the day to a close with a little musical tidbit about the finale of the Skywalker Saga. Lin-Manuel Miranda, the composer, writer, and singer behind the Broadway musicals In the Heights and Hamilton, took to Twitter the other day to reveal that he wrote a little bit of music for THE RISE OF SKYWALKER alongside director J.J. Abrams.
Something to keep an ear out for when we finally get to see the film. As glimpsed in a behind-the-scenes featurette released last month, Lin-Manuel Miranda also appears to have a cameo in STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER as well. This won’t be Miranda’s first contribution to a STAR WARS film, as he also collaborated with J.J. Abrams on two songs for Maz Canata’s cantina for STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER hits theaters on December 20th, so be sure to check out a review from our own Matt Rooney!
