Most folks know Miranda as the creator of ‘Hamilton,’ while Chu is best known for directing “Crazy Rich Asians,” so it’s only right they’re combining forces on what has to be one of 2021’s most anticipated cinematic events — brining Miranda’s Broadway show to the screen delivering a film that serves up incredible musical numbers to accompany a storyline that is nothing short of magical.
