If you’re the kind of gal who grew up admiring Disney Princesses like Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas and Belle, and in your adult years have put your little loved ones onto Moana and Tiana, rejoice, because our very own Latina Princess might soon be accompanying our fave cartoon royalty on the big screen.

Last March, Disney Animated Studios announced four films coming out in the next four years, including “Frozen 2.” There haven’t been any clues on the additional three films, until now.

According to Page Six, one of the films could center on a Latina princess, and Lin-Manuel Miranda might have a role in creating the star.

“He is talking to Disney about a sequel to Moana, but the movie would be about a Latina princess,” Luis Miranda, the Hamilton creator’s dad, told Page Six.

Disney reps didn’t get back to the outlet with more deets, particularly clarifying if the princess will make her appearance in a Moana sequel or if Miranda would be working with the studio for a second time by co-writing the first Latina Princess film.

Miranda has collaborated with the animation studio in the past, working on Moana and composing the music for the film.

While the Latinx community welcomed its very first Disney Princess in 2016, by way of the courageous Elena of Avalor, we have yet to have Latina royalty on the big screen, and girls of color around the country are ecstatic about the prospect.

Since Miranda is allegedly currently only in talks with Disney, it’s doubtful we’ll get a glimpse of the new princess anytime soon — but, really, can we just get a confirmation? We’re ready to celebrate with a marathon of all our fave Disney Princess movies.
