Get ready to experience Hamilton like never before! That’s right, the fan-favorite Broadway show is about to hit Disney+, and we can’t wait to watch it.
For those who don’t know, Hamilton “is the story of America then, told by America now,” according to the trailer, which hit YouTube on Sunday, June 21. The entire two act musical was written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who starred as Alexander Hamilton in the Broadway production until 2016, and will reprise his role for the Disney+ version. After watching the trailer, it’s safe to say that this is definitely something you’re not going to want to miss!
Aside from Lin-Manuel, the Disney+ version of the famed stage show will also star Phillipa Soo, Jonathan Groff, Daveed Diggs, Leslie Odom Jr., Christopher Jackson, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Okieriete Onaodowan and Anthony Ramos. Get this, guys — you won’t have to wait too long to watch because Hamilton hits the streaming service on Friday, July 3!
Since the trailer first dropped, many diehard fans have wondered if there’s going to be any changes from stage to screen. But don’t worry, people, because Lin-Manuel took to Twitter and set the record straight once and for all.
“On July 3, you’re getting the whole show, every note [and] scene, [and] a one-minute countdown clock during intermission (bathroom!). But MPAA has a hard rule about language: More than [one] utterance of ‘F**k’ is an automatic R rating. We have three ‘F**ks’ in our show,” he posted on Twitter. “I literally gave two f**ks so the kids could see it: 1. In Yorktown, there’s a mute over ‘I get the f**k back up again.’ 2. ‘Southern *record scratch*kin’ Democratic Republicans.’ You can sing whatEVER you like at home (even sync up the album)! Love you. Enjoy.”
So, yes, everything from “the bows music” and “laughs and claps and gasps” from the audience will be included, according to the man in charge himself. Now, all that’s left is to wait a few more weeks before Hamilton is played on repeat.
