Disney to Present “Hamilton” in Theaters in 2021 with Original Broadway Cast

This morning, Lin-Manuel Miranda announced that “Hamilton” would be coming to the big screen. The film is something Broadway fans have been waiting for since the cast recording was released in 2015. Many fans were not able to make it to New York City to see the original cast on Broadway but this new film will bring the original cast to theaters close to home!

The announcement came through Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Twitter, where he simply tweeted out the key details of the film. From this post, we know that this was filmed at The Richard Rogers Theatre on Broadway and will feature the original cast. We also know that it will debut in theaters on October 15, 2021. This is one that we definitely can’t wait to see!

Of course, Lin-Manuel Miranda is no stranger to Disney. Just two months ago, he was invited to narrate Disneyland’s annual Candlelight Processional, which marked his family’s first visit to the Anaheim park together. He also wrote the music for Disney’s Moana. Fans of “Hamilton” may recognize that Christopher Jackson, who played George Washington, also made an appearance in Moana!

Even if we do have to wait for it, we are so thrilled to be in the room where it happens. What do you think about Disney bringing this Broadway hit to theaters? Be sure to connect with us on Twitter and Facebook to let us know!
