“Hamilton” is making its way from stage to screen

Intending to make Independence Day the best it can be during these uncertain times, Disney is releasing Lin-Manuel Miranda’s famous musical “Hamilton” on Disney+ on July 3. This comes one year and a half ahead of the company’s intended theatrical release for 2021.

“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,” Miranda said in a statement. “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.”

The movie is a filmed version of the stage show featuring the original cast and Miranda who stars as titular Founding Father. The performance that is set to be released on the streaming service comes from a June 2016 performance at New York City’s Richard Rodgers Theatre, which is the original Broadway home of “Hamilton.”

“Hamilton” is expected to give Disney+ a significant boost in terms of content and help the streaming service compete against other platforms like Netflix and Hulu despite its smaller library.

“Hamilton” is also expected to help kick start America’s annual Independence Day celebrations. The national holiday, which usually brings together crowds of people in outdoor spaces, will likely be different this year. With the likelihood of many people continuing to stay home, watching “Hamilton” on Disney+ will offer families an appealing new July 4th celebration that is both entertaining and informative.
