Moana songwriter reveals that kakamora villains were inspired by Mad Max

Lin-Manuel Miranda, one of the composers of the "Moana" soundtrack, revealed today on Twitter that the kakamora villains – the small coconuts that attack the protagonist and the demigod Maui – were inspired by "Mad Max: Estrada da Fúria".

One fan praised the idea: "In a strangely cool way, evil coconuts are perhaps the coolest idea for a villain."

Lin replied, "When (screenwriter) Jared Bush suggested it, I didn't quite understand. Then he said, 'It's going to be like Mad Max Fury Road.'"

When @thejaredbush pitched it, I didn't get it. Then he said, "We're going full Mad Max Fury Road." #TheWonderfulWorldOfDisney https://t.co/PztXNG9NuC

The kakamora scene is reminiscent of Mad Max's persecutions, which even include characters playing war drums:

Curiosity pleased the fans, and some said they had already noticed the reference: "That's what my husband said when we first saw Moana!", Said a follower of the composer.

On Twitter, Lin-Manuel Miranda also told about the routine of writing and recording the soundtrack while presenting the musical Hamilton on Broadway: "I don't know how I survived 2016".

For him, the most difficult song to write was "How Far I'll Go" ("Saber Quem Sou", in Portuguese). "You need to understand that 'Free I am' had just happened. It was still in my head!"

How Far I'll Go.
You have to understand, Let It Go had JUST happened. It was still in my head! #TheWonderfulWorldOfDisney https://t.co/H7ApF3zT36
