Easter Egg: Sebastian In Moana

In Moana (2016), the first name listed under the Production Babies in the credits is the name, Sebastian. The name isn’t necessarily a direct reference to the Jamaican crab from The Little Mermaid (1989), but it is indirectly. The songwriter of the film was Lin-Manuel Miranda, later popularized for his musical writings and compositions for Hamilton (2020), Encanto (2021), and The Little Mermaid (2023). Lin-Manuel named his first-born son Sebastian in 2014 after everyone’s favorite crab.

Warwick had auditioned for the role of an Ewok back in 1982 after his grandmother had heard on the radio that there was a casting call for people under 4’tall for a film.
