Hamilton creator/star Lin-Manual Miranda and the once and future
Hermione Granger Emma Watson recently got together on International Women’s Day to create the perfect video for the Internet. It has everything: Emma Watson, beatboxer extraordinaire; Miranda freestyling about feminism; even a quick reference to Watson’s time at Hogwarts (or at least movie sets).
The two made the video in support of Watson’s He for She campaign, so Miranda’s raps — backed by Watson’s self-conscious but charming beatboxing — are all about equality. “Women are like half of the people on Earth, they should have been equal since birth,” Miranda spits.
Wise words from the guy who also wrote “I’m ‘a compel him to include women in the sequel!” when discussing the Declaration of Independence. Work!
