YAY!

Quote:
Though Miranda's work on Moana was only announced last summer, he secretly spent years on the project: Indeed, Disney chief creative officer John Lasseter and Moana directors John Musker and Ron Clements hired him before Hamilton became a hit. All involved are keen to continue the collaboration, and when Miranda sat down with Vulture yesterday, he divulged that he's now collaborating with Zootopia co-director Byron Howard on a new animated film they are building from the ground up.

"That's the fun thing about working with someone and having it go well — you go, 'Okay, what else can we do?'" Miranda told Vulture. "Lasseter took me aside and said, 'I have an idea: Here's Byron, and you guys should start talking.'" Though he was excited, Miranda couldn't say much else about the project, except to caution that it could take years to bear fruit, given the glacial pace of animated production. "We literally haven't gotten in the room yet," he said, "but we're plotting."

I thought Byron would be busy developing Zootopia 2. I guess this means a sequel has yet to be put into active development. I'm guessing they'll do it in 2018, after Rich Moore finishes production on Wreck-It Ralph 2. Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee were also working on a new movie but when the studio announced Frozen 2, they had to drop it to focus on the sequel.

So, it looks like the 2020's will be:

-Frozen 2???
-Zootopia 2
-Buck/Lee movie
-Byron Howard/Lin Manuel-Miranda Movie

I wonder if Howard will keep Miranda restrained here like he did Menken on Tangled? Somehow I don’t think Miranda’ll be treated the same. I was hoping Howard and that other guy would stay on non-musicals because they seemed to hate having to have musical numbers in Tangled.

Byron Howard and Jared Bush visited the Animation Research Library to do research for the musical movie. It seems Jared Bush has come on board as writer and co-director.

Q: I hope you're doing research for you know what. [Zootopia 2]

Byron Howard: Nope.

Doing a little research at Disney archives with Byron Howard and figured... since we’re here we might as well weasel a look at some original art from Jungle Book because it’s the first animated movie I ever saw.

Yes, really interesting. They were doing research at the Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros section, and also Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is doing the music, is of Puerto Rican descent. I wonder if that might mean the movie they are working on is set in South America.

And a couple days later, Lin and his Hamilton collaborator posted this. Interesting.
