Attention, 'Hamilton' Fans: 'In the Heights' Has a New Trailer & We Can't Stop Watching

Lin Manuel Miranda has written two Broadway musicals: In the Heights and Hamilton. You’ve probably heard of Hamilton — it won, like, every award in the history of the world and sold out forever? Also a major motion picture on Disney+? You know the one. In the Heights, however, is a little closer to home for Miranda, chronicling a small block in a primarily Dominican community in New York City’s Washington Heights. It’s a love story, an intimate look at parent-child dynamics in first-generation immigrant families, and an absolutely banging can’t-stop-singing-it musical all in one — and this new movie trailer proved they might actually do this Broadway hit justice on the big screen. God bless Crazy Rich Asians‘ Jon M. Chu, because this new trailer has us counting down the days until it’s released on June 18, 2021.
