Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote the anthemic song for the new movie 'Moana.'

By Amanda Wicks

Lin-Manuel Miranda has been busy post-Hamilton. Not only has he been hard at work on a Hamilton mixtape, but he composed all the music for the upcoming Disney animated film Moana.

Disney released the music video for the lead single off the soundtrack, “How Far I’ll Go,” today (Nov. 3). Alessia Cara, bears a resemblance to the lead character, lends her voice to that track and appears in the visual.

The video begins with an opening shot of Moana sailing her boat across the waters before cutting to Cara walking along a warm rocky beach (presumably in Hawaii where the film is set). She draws lines in the sand, which turn out to be something far more significant once the camera pulls back and an overhead helicopter shot reveals just what she’s been doing.

“See the light where the sky meets the sea/ It calls me/ And no one knows how far it goes/ If the wind at my sail on the sea stays behind me/ One day I’ll know/ If I go there’s just no telling how far I’ll go,” Cara sings on the anthemic chorus.

Check out the new video below.
