Hamilton is coming to Disney+ on July 3, 2020 after it was originally supposed to get a theatrical release in October, 2021!
“I’m so proud of how beautifully Tommy Kail has brought ‘Hamilton’ to the screen. He’s given everyone who watches this film the best seat in the house,” the show’s creator Lin-Manuel Miranda said in a statement. “I’m so grateful to Disney and Disney+ for reimagining and moving up our release to July 4th weekend of this year, in light of the world turning upside down. I’m so grateful to all the fans who asked for this, and I’m so glad that we’re able to make it happen. I’m so proud of this show. I can’t wait for you to see it.”
Hamilton won 11 Tony Awards, theater’s most prestigious award. Be sure to check it out on Disney+ in July!
