Disney+ to celebrate Independence Day with Hamilton

Broadway’s most popular edutainment production is making an early appearance on Disney+.

The streaming service today announced that they’ve moved up the release for their filmed, original cast stage performance of Hamilton. Previously set for an October 2021 theatrical release, now Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop history lesson will now arrive Friday, July 3, wheeling in the TV cart to give the nation’s teach-at-home parents a much-needed movie day.

Pair it with the likewise early-to-streaming Cats for the perfect double-feature of “wait, that’s what the drama kids were freaking out over?”
