Original live Broadway production of Hamilton to be streamed on Disney+ starting July 3
The Walt Disney Company announced Tuesday it’s fast-tracking the premiere of Hamilton the Musical on Disney+. It’ll now stream on July 3.
The film of the much celebrated musical is being billed as a “live capture” that “transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way.”
“No other artistic work in the last decade has had the cultural impact of ‘Hamilton’—an inspiring and captivating tale told and performed in a powerfully creative way. In light of the extraordinary challenges facing our world, this story about leadership, tenacity, hope, love and the power of people to unite against the forces of adversity is both relevant and impactful,” Robert A. Iger, executive chairman of The Walt Disney Company said in a statement.
“We are thrilled to bring this phenomenon to Disney+ on the eve of Independence Day, and we have the brilliant Lin-Manuel Miranda and the team behind ‘Hamilton’ to thank for allowing us to do so more than a year before planned.”
Hamilton has won 11 Tony Awards, a Grammy, an Oliver Award and a Pulitzer.
