Moana Insider Reveals Warped Link To The Little Mermaid's Sebastian
You know Lin-Manuel Miranda, right? He wrote the score for the American play Hamilton! as well as *all* the songs for Disney's latest export, Moana.
He's a total legend if we're being quite honest and now he's blessed us with inside Disney knowledge.
Moana trailers show an angry, human-eating crab called Tamatoa picking on our heroine Moana - but he has his reasons. And they're to do with Ariel's little crab friend Sebastian, way back in ~1990~.
I call this Sebastian's Revenge: a Disney crab singing about eating humans?
*whispers to 9 year old Lin*

Speaking about his love of The Little Mermaid as a kid, Lin said: "I must've seen that thing three times in the theaters," he told Good Morning America.
"I remember calling in sick from school on the day it came out on VHS — so that I could be the first to get it."
Remembering Sebastien's beef with land-lovers (remember when the chef chopped up a dead fish and Sebastian nearly vomited?) Lin vowed to get revenge on behalf of the underwater creatures - by creating a people-eating crab of his own in the latest Disney film.
