Disney's first official trailer for Hamilton will instantly transport you to the front row of the iconic theatre production. The multi-award-winning musical, written and composed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, debuts with its original Broadway cast on July 3, exclusively on Disney+.
Hamilton was originally planned for release in theaters on Oct. 15, 2021, but due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Disney decided to give fans an early summer treat — by premiering the anticipated stage musical on July 3, on Disney+. Hamilton explores the story of one of America's founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, which was inspired by a 2004 biography by historian Ron Chernow. The play is revolutionary in every sense of the word, as it reimagines American history through a modern lens, with non-white actors being cast as historical figures, and the rap and hip hop genre shaping the musical scores of the production.
