  • The Hamilton movie, a recording of a live performance of the hit musical, will arrive on the Disney+ streaming platform on July 3.

  • The film was originally slated for theaters in October 2021.

Soon, we can all say that we saw Hamilton with the original cast. A full performance recording of the Lin-Manuel Miranda–composed musical will be available to stream on Disney+ starting tomorrow, July 3, more than a year in advance of its original fall 2021 release date.

The project was filmed at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in New York City in June 2016 with its original stars, including Miranda himself as Alexander Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Jonathan Groff as King George, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens and Philip Hamilton, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, and Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler.

Miranda announced the news in May, quoting one of the show's lyrics. "It's only a matter of time...," he wrote. "Our Hamilton film. THIS July 3rd. On Disney+."

The news of a Hamilton film first arrived in February, with the premiere date set for October 15, 2021, in theaters. But now, with stay-at-home measures ongoing and Broadway remaining dark until 2021, this Fourth of July weekend is an even better time for the project to release.

Where to Stream It

The movie will be exclusive to Disney's streaming service, Disney+, but requires a subscription to watch. If you don't have one yet, you can register below for $7 per month, $70 per year, or $13 per month in a bundle package with Hulu and ESPN memberships. Remember, the platform is no longer offering free trials for new subscribers.
