Disney moves up Hamilton film from October and swaps theatrical release for streaming platform. Originally set to release the recording in theaters next year, on October 15, 2021. It was a deal that cost Disney $75 million in global distribution rights. But after the ratings success of the early released Michael Jordan docuseries The Last Dance, shifting big ticket items upward is starting to look like a viable option.
Disney chiefs had planned to debut the movie, directed by Thomas Kail and featuring a theatrical performance by the original cast, including Miranda, in cinemas in October 2021.
Instead, they will make the musical, which tells the story of U.S. founding father Alexander Hamilton, available on Disney+ on July 3, meaning it will be viewable on America’s 4 July Independence Day holiday.
Miranda announced the change on Tuesday (May 12), saying in a press release: “I’m so proud of how beautifully Tommy Kail has brought ‘Hamilton’ to the screen. He’s given everyone who watches this film the best seat in the house.
