Lin-Manuel Miranda has been busy! The actor, writer and singer just shared some exciting news on Twitter today regarding his newest project, and you won’t want to miss it.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Encanto tells the story of the Madrigal family, who live in the mountains of Colombia in a special place called Encanto. The location is home to the family, but also to plenty of magic. Keep scrolling to catch the first teaser trailer.

Mirabel, the only one in her family without magical powers, is on a journey to find her place in the family. Voicing the character, Stephanie Beatriz shares, “Mirabel is a really funny, loving character who also deeply yearns for something more. She’s also not afraid to stand up for what she knows is right—something I love and relate to very much.”

The film features new original songs by Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as the voice of Colombian singer and songwriter, Carlos Vives. Stay tuned for more news on the colorful and musical film, coming to theaters this fall.
