This tease of “In the Heights” also includes the first cameo from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself, who takes on the role of Piragua Man in the movie. And you’ll also get a brief sense of the film’s framing device, which shows Usnavi on a beach explaining to a group of kids the magic of his New York home.

In addition to Ramos and Miranda, the film version of “In the Heights” stars Corey Hawkins, Jimmy Smits, Olga Merediz, Melissa Barrera, Leslie Grace, Stephanie Beatriz, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Dascha Polanco and Gregory Diaz IV, all of whom pop up in these eight minutes.

“In the Heights” opens in both theaters and on HBO Max on June 10. Check out the video of the film’s first song here and above.
