Disney and Lin-Manuel Miranda announced a wonderful 4th of July surprise for fans of Miranda's hit musical Hamilton!
After having to push the theatrical release date to October due to the pandemic, Disney now plans to stream Hamilton on its platform Disney+ on July 3 -- and we can't wait!
Hamilton was filmed live on Broadway from the Richard Rodgers Theatre with the original Broadway cast.
In a statement, Lin-Manuel Miranda thanked Disney for pushing forward Hamilton's release "in light of the world turning upside down", as the world grapples with the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
