The rap-inspired musical that premiered on Broadway in 2015 and won 11 Tony Awards including the best musical as well as a Pulitzer Prize for drama in 2016, is coming to Disney+ on July 3.
Disney paid $75 million for the rights to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton, which is about founding father Alexander Hamilton’s life, and they recently released the first trailer for the film. The film was supposed to be released in theaters on October 15, 2021, but Disney moved up the release date last month.
The trailer shows the cast performing to the opening number “Alexander Hamilton” and “Satisfied.” There’s also footage from scenes from the show with the original cast members including Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs, Phillipa Soo, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Christopher Jackson, Anthony Ramos, Jonathon Groff, Okieriete Onaodowan, and Jasmine Cephas Jones.
