Hamilton Comes To Disney In July

By  |  0 Comments

A bright spot in the pandemic! Disney has just changed its plans to release a filmed version of the Lin-Manuel Miranda Broadway musical Hamilton. It now will be released July 3 on Disney+, accelerating an original October 15, 2021, theatrical release, followed by a Disney+ berth.

Disney Executive Chairman Robert Iger andcreator and original star Lin-Manuel Miranda just announced on Good Morning America that Hamilton will brighten up the July 4 weekend with the seminal hip-hop American history tale.

This comes after Disney moved up the release of the 10-part Michael Jordan docu The Last Dance from a planned release on ESPN during the NBA playoffs. Showing two one-hour segments each week since April 19, the superb series has been a ratings godsend for ESPN and sports-starved fans who otherwise have had nothing to watch due to the coronavirus pandemic.
