Lin-Manuel Miranda the Narrator for 2019 Candlelight Processional at the Disneyland Resort

Each year at Disneyland ahead of the Candlelight Processional Disney fans speculate about who will be the celebrity narrator for this special event. This year that narrator is Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Miranda is known on both the stage and screen. For Disney he recently started as Jack in Mary Poppins Returns with Emily Blunt. He also wrote songs for Moana and appears on the soundtrack as well. In the theater he is know as the creator and lead actor in Hamilton. He also created and was the lead for In the Heights. 

Lin-Manuel Miranda is currently working on the live-action version of The Little Mermaid for Disney.

Candlelight has a rich legacy at the Disneyland Resort. Each year during the first weekend of December the story of Christmas is told with a celebrity narrator, 500 voice choir, orchestra, handbells, soloists, and fanfare trumpeters. DAPS MAGIC films the procession each year and posts it on YouTube. Recent narrators have included Chris Pratt, Chris Hemsworth, and Ginnifer Goodwin among many others.
