Didn’t get to see Hamilton onstage? No worries, Disney has your back. The acclaimed and beloved musical, written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is getting the movie treatment. A filmed version of the stage production will become available worldwide beginning July 3 on Disney+, 15 months earlier than it was initially scheduled.
The production stars Miranda in the titular role of US treasury secretary and Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, along with the original Broadway cast. The musical was inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by historian Ron Chernow. It chronicles Hamilton’s ascent out of poverty and to power against the backdrop of the American War of Independence. The narrative is presented in the form of original, catchy hip-hop and R’n’B songs.
Yes. Hamilton received numerous accolades since it premiered back off-Broadway in 2015, including 11 Tony Awards and the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The musical itself has made its way across America and was set to go to Hamburg and Sydney. So for now, this stage recording will be the only way many will be able to see it, making for an exciting watch.
Hamilton will drop on streaming service Disney+ on July 3, 2020. Disney+ previously offered its users a free trial but have since removed the offer. You’ll have to sign up to Disney+ for at least a month to be able to watch the new release of Hamilton .
You can check out all the shows and movies on Disney+. The lists feature titles from Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars, including recent blockbuster Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and new film Artemis Fowl.
