While most everyone has seen and most likely LOVES Julie Andrews' Mary Poppins, it was recently announced that Disney would be reviving the character in a sequel starring Blunt as the beloved nanny titled Mary Poppins Returns.

But if you think that John Krasinski's wife is going to follow in Andrews' footsteps, you'd be mistaken as the Brit admitted:

Over the years, Disney has enlisted in masterminds like Elton John, Randy Newman, and Phil Collins to create the soundtracks of its animated films.

But it turns out no one loves singing Disney classics than Lin-Manuel Miranda!

Over the weekend, the Hamilton star took over Disney Animation's Instagram to promote the upcoming film Moana, for which he wrote the music, by blessing us with his own rendition of iconic tunes from the Mouse House.

Vote: What's The Best Disney Song Of All Time?!

Under the hashtag #linstagram, the 36-year-old belted out melodies from Aladdin, Newsies, The Little Mermaid, Mulan and more.

If that wasn't enough, Miranda even called on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson — who voices a demigod in Moana — to duet a funny rendition of Gaston from Beauty and the Beast!

Ch-ch-check out the clips (below) to hear Lin croon some Disney faves, and look out for a cameo from Auli'i Cravalho — who can be heard as the voice the titular princess when Moana hits theaters November 23!

Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Bringing Hamilton To Your TV Screens To Teach You A Drunk History Lesson!

Four pours and seven beers ago.

If you would have told us that a story about one of our Founding Fathers getting shot to death would translate into the most popular Broadway musical in ages… we never would have believed you.

But luckily, Lin-Manuel Miranda trusted his instincts and blessed us with Hamilton: An American Musical – and now he's about to do it all again for the small screen!

That's right — Comedy Central announced on Friday that Lin will be helming an upcoming episode of Drunk History this season… and while no one else has been cast just yet, it'd be a national tragedy for them to not use Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsbery, and Leslie Odom, Jr. to some extent!

Interestingly enough, DH's first-ever televised episode featured Michael Cera as Alexander Hamilton, Jake Johnson as Aaron Burr, and Ashley Johnson as Eliza Schuyler Hamilton, so Lin's going to have his work cut out for him in order to teach us something new.

Although… he's already won a Grammy, a Peabody, and 11 Tonys for his first retelling of the deadly duel — so if anyone's up for the challenge, it's him!

Will U be watching Lin-Manuel Miranda's Drunk History debut when Season Four premieres Tuesday, September 27 on Comedy Central??

She's preaching against hate and looking flawless doing it!

Last week, Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda released their powerful new song Love Make the World Go Round last week, which was written to benefit the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting.

The duo stopped by Tuesday's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to sing the inspiring song, and their performance totally took our breath away — specifically J.Lo's stunning gown!

The 46-year-old's dress had a super long train, and was made to look like a stained glass window of a church.

After Miranda kicked off his rap, Lopez pulled a wardrobe change and was soon after donning a red, white, and blue embroidered bustier! How patriotic!

Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to see the moving performance — and J.Lo's extraordinary outfit!
