He's already made his name on Broadway, and it seems that Lin-Manuel Miranda is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the Disney front too, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Miranda is going nonstop, no telling how far he'll go, already co-starring in the sequel of "Mary Poppins." He took his shot and wrote the ear-worm soundtrack that breathed live into "Moana."

Now, the “Hamilton” writer will be working on new songs for the score of the upcoming live-action version of “The Little Mermaid.”

Miranda, who calls himself a lifelong Disney fan, will compose with Alan Menken. Miranda was first attached to the film a year ago, but no details were given when it was announced. Menken made the collaboration announcement at the recent D23 Expo, Entertainment Weekly reported.

He also performed a medley of the songs he wrote with his former creative partner Howard Ashman, who died in 1991.

Almost a year ago, Miranda took over the mouse house's Instagram, putting his own take on many popular Disney classics. There may be a "Mermaid" song in there, and you're welcome.

"Mary Poppins: Returns" hits theaters this December.

No date has been released for “The Little Mermaid” remake.
