It’s been nearly two years since Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical premiered on Broadway, and over a year since the show swept the 2016 Tony Awards. So why, you may ask, are your social-media feeds all of the sudden being flooded with celebrities doing their best Schuyler, Burr, and Lafayette impressions? It’s all part of Miranda’s fund-raising campaign for the Immigrants, We Get the Job Done Coalition, which works “locally and nationally to empower millions of Latino children, youth, and families through three essential service pillars: increasing the capacity of Hispanic grassroots organizations, advocating for social justice, and providing direct programs that transform communities.”

The video, taped on the set of The Beguiled, has fun cameos from Kidman, Dunst, Fanning, Farrell, and Coppola herself—but the real stars come from the film’s younger generation. Oona Laurence, so engaging in Pete’s Dragon, pops off the screen as Aaron Burr, while Angourie Rice, Addison Riecke, and Emma Howard make for (apologies) a beguiling trio of Schuyler sisters, complete with original stage choreography.
