It was an exciting morning for Hamilton fans! Lin-Manuel Miranda announced on Twitter bright and early that Hamilton will hit Disney+ on July 3, 2020.
The theatrical release was being anticipated by many for 2021, so this acceleration and home release was a surprise!
“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,” said Lin-Manuel Miranda in this morning’s press release. “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.”
Somehow the move to be able to see this sooner has made the anticipation even stronger. In the meantime, try some other awesome things to stream from our roundup of virtual field trips:
