How to Watch Hamilton On Disney+ This Weekend

Style

If you were once a member of the masses willing to sacrifice your firstborn for a ticket to see Broadway’s Hamilton, yearn no longer. Beginning July 3 on Disney+, there’s a seat for you in the room where the award-winning musical happens. Hamilton will hit the streaming service more than a year ahead of its original October 2021 release date—and not a moment too soon.

The hip-hop musical about the founding fathers arrives just in time for the Fourth of July weekend, after being announced back in February. Thomas Kail, who helmed the original Broadway show, will direct this filmed version. And stage show purists, rest easy: You’ll see the Tony, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize-winning show with its full original cast. Miranda, the creator and titular star of Hamilton, stars in the filmed production and will be joined by Tony winners Leslie Odom, Jr. as Aaron Burr, Daveed Diggs as the Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, and Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler. Tony nominees Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Jonathan Groff as King George, and Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton also return.

Here’s how to see the groundbreaking musical that reinvented history.

How do I watch Hamilton on Disney+?

The filmed version of Hamilton will be available exclusively on Disney+ at midnight PST or 3 a.m. EST, Miranda clarified on Twitter. There’s no need to scramble to watch the whole thing right away (although we’re all tempted). Miranda assured anxious viewers that his career-defining work won’t be leaving the internet any time soon. “You will just have it,” he wrote. “For as many times as you like, right next to A Goofy Movie and Talespin and An Extremely Goofy Movie…”

If you have a Disney+ account already, the show is free to you at the aforementioned date and time. For those who need access, you’ll need to formally sign up for the streaming service. (The previous free trial period is over for the moment.) You can sign up for Disney+ here. Plans include $6.99/month or $69.99/year. There is also a bundle featuring Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for $12.99/month. No matter which plan you choose, it’s guaranteed to be less than the price of a Broadway ticket.

Will there be any watch parties or special features?

Funny you should ask: Both an official Twitter watch party and virtual roundtable featuring the cast have been confirmed. During a recent Good Morning America interview, Miranda opened up about filming Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in June 2016. He revealed that the actors shot the stage show with cameras in the audience over the course of a Sunday matinee, Monday day off, and Tuesday evening performance. “So it was basically a three-day film shoot with the best-rehearsed cast in the history of the movies because we’d all been doing the show for a year at this point,” Miranda said.

More behind-the-scenes insights are sure to be uncovered in the official cast watch party on Twitter. That will take place on Friday, July 3 at 7 p.m. EST/ 4 p.m. PST with the hashtag #Hamilfilm for following along. Fans can also watch a complimentary virtual roundtable, Hamilton In-Depth, with team Hamilton and host Kelley Carter, on Disney+ and TheUndefeated.com.

Other orders of business Miranda noted on Twitter: he cut two “fucks” from the show to ensure a PG-13 rating; the cast bows will be included; subtitles in other languages will be coming soon; and there will be a countdown clock for intermission between acts one and two—so snack and bathroom breaks are encouraged.
