Anaheim (California), Jul 18 (PTI) Veteran Disney composer Alan Menken and “Hamilton” star Lin-Manuel Miranda will be collaborating on new music for “The Little Mermaid” film.

Menken made the announcement at the D23 Expo. The movie is to re-imagine the studio’s 1989 animated classic.

“For the live-action Little Mermaid, I’m writing additional songs with lyrics by ‘Hamilton’ and ‘Moana’ songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda,” he said.

Miranda first boarded “The Little Mermaid” a year ago, but details about his creative involvement were not revealed.
