As the 93rd Academy Awards took over Los Angeles' Union Station and the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on Sunday night (April 25), Lin-Manuel Miranda joined the festivities to introduce a brand new trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of his Broadway musical, In the Heights.

The minute-and-a-half trailer shows Anthony Ramos as Usnavi, Stephanie Beatriz as Carla, Miranda himself as Mr. Piragüero and more as they portray the story of a Washington Heights bodega owner who debates closing his store and retiring to the Dominican Republic after inheriting his grandmother's fortune.

The clip also offers sneak peeks of the film's powerful musical numbers, including "When the Sun Goes Down" and "Carnaval de Barrio."

The musical, which was delayed due to the global pandemic, is now hitting theaters and HBO Max on June 11, 2021.
