So this is a thing — Lin-Manuel Miranda has signed on as creative producer for Lionsgate’s film & TV adaptations of Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicles. Which means he will also be writing some of the music, and probably most of the songs. The main character, Kvothe, is a freakin’ incredible musician and songwriter, and the world is full of ballads and bawdy songs and nursery rhymes… This is going to be EPIC, folks.
The news broke last week, and I was literally jumping up and down and squealing in excitement, which is not a thing I do very often. And then I came across this exchange on Twitter. Y’all, I can’t tell you how much I love these guys, and how awesome this is going to be.
