The buzz has been building and we're happy to report that the hype is real, "In The Heights" delivers! At the helm is Jon M. Chu, a filmmaker who's been dreaming of directing a movie musical since he was a kid. As you'll see from the film, Jon has the chops.

On this episode of "Happy Sad Confused", Jon returns to the podcast to talk about how he brought Lin Manuel Miranda's work to life, kept it personal, and honored a culture. Plus, Jon and Josh talk the upcoming "Wicked" musical, the "Crazy Rich Asians" sequel, and their mutual love of "Willow".
