Lin-Manuel Miranda Took Over the Walt Disney Studios Instagram and It Was Adorable

Yesterday, one of our favorite humans, Lin-Manuel Miranda, took over the Walt Disney Studios Instagram. It was legendary and truly a gift to us all. Lin plays Jack in the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns, alongside Emily Blunt who will play Mary Poppins herself. We are so excited to see this film on December 19, and this Instagram takeover officially has us starting the countdown. Let’s take a look at what went down:

First, Lin delighted us with a boomerang of him as Jack:

Then he posted this adorbs pic of him and Emily, making us want to be their best friends forever and ever:

We’ve all been here:

Oh, look, Emily and Lin being even more adorable:

Okay now we are weeping because Lin did a mash up of Disney songs:

This Disney Villain Instagram post was sent to us by Lin and probably also Santa Claus because it’s the great gift we’ve ever received:

And finally, when we thought our hearts were truly full, Lin finished his takeover with this picture of him and Dick Van Dyke:

Well, that just made our lives. Thank you to Lin-Manuel Miranda for delighting us all on the Walt Disney Studios Instagram. We can’t wait to see Lin and Emily in Mary Poppins Returns on December 19!
