The Hamilton film is just around the corner and it’s certainly been an exciting road to get the filmed musical to the screen. In February, Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted that Hamilton was coming to the big screen saying, “Disney presents Hamilton. With The Original Broadway Cast. Filmed onstage at The Richard Rodgers Theatre. In A Theater Near You. October 15, 2021. #Hamilfilm“ Then the pandemic happened and Disney made the surprising but very welcome announcement, Hamilton will come 15 months early on July 3rd and it will come to your home on Disney Plus.
The new streaming service just dropped a trailer for the film and it is, in a word, electrifying. Fans everywhere are already excited and this trailer just pushes the adrenalin past 11. We’re almost there Hamilfans!
