Anthony Ramos, who played a supporting role in A Star Is Born and led police thriller Monsters and Men, stars as the lead in the full-blown musical about a close-knit neighbourhood and the dilemmas the young bodega owner faces.
The first trailer bursts with colour and sound, capturing the immense sense of community and Miranda's tremendous knack to write a catchy tune as well.
Since his astronomical success with Hamilton, Miranda has gone on to write music for film and TV across the board. But this marks the first time a project of his own returns to the screen with as much authorial control.
Alongside Ramos, the film stars Cory Hawkins and a host of newcomers bringing this world to life: Stephanie Beatriz, Dascha Polanco, Melissa Barrera, Leslie Grace, among others.
2020 will also see the release of Steven Spielberg's West Side Story remake – but perhaps In the Heights is just what we need to whet our musical appetites over the summer, when it hits cinemas on 26 June 2020.
