Updated 6/28: Disney+ has released a new trailer ahead of the July 3 release of Hamilton: An American Musical. Nothing in this look at the film is too new, but there are some dramatic, shadowy shots of the cast set to a piano version of the musical's appropriately titled first song "Alexander Hamilton," which should succeed at getting the Hamilfans even more hyped than they already were. Just you wait!
There's less than a month until Hamilton: An American Musicalmakes its way to Disney+. The Broadway favorite was filmed with its original cast back in 2016 and was originally set to hit theaters in the fall of 2021, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the theatrical phenomenon will now debut on Disney+ on Friday, July 3.
The trailer gives just a sneak peek of what fans and people anxious to see the musical that was sold out around the country can expect from the filmed spectacular. Make sure you don't throw away your shot to see this one-of-a-kind show that took the pop culture zeitgeist by storm almost five years ago.
The original cast features Lin-Manuel Miranda in the leading role as founding father Alexander Hamilton, along with Tony winners Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs, and Renee Elise Goldsberry, as well as the stunning Phillipa Soo (who will make you absolutely weep as Eliza Hamilton) and Broadway darling Jonathan Groff as King George.
The taped performance will be the first time that many are actually able to see Hamilton due to the extraordinarily high demand for tickets. And it'll be a chance for those who were lucky to enough to see the show live before COVID-19 shut down Broadway and theatrical productions across the country to relive their theater memories. It's a chance for everyone to see who lives, who dies, and who writes our story.
Hamilton: An American Musical premieres on Friday, July 3 on Disney+.
