Hamilton is coming to Disney+ on July 3rd and we couldn’t possibly be more excited.
Hamilton’s original cast performances were filmed over three nights in 2016 before any of the cast members departed. The film is an edited version of the three nights full of its best takes. It is coming to us a year early, and will be for many across the country their first time seeing Hamilton. The reason why most people haven’t seen Hamilton, is it had record-breaking ticket prices, and sold out performances for months (along with the geographic limits of only being performed in a few cities around the world, like New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Fransisco). This is a big move for Disney+ as many of it’s upcoming shows like Loki were suspended mid production due to the Corona virus outbreak.
In a tweet, Disney chairman Bob Iger said he was “thrilled” about the decision to bump up the release. “In this very difficult time, this story of leadership, tenacity, hope, love & the power of people to unite against adversity is both relevant and inspiring,” he said.
