Right off the bat, I’d like to get this out of the way. No, this is not news regarding a film adaptation of the beloved Broadway hit, Hamilton. Instead, it’s about the filming of the Broadway production featuring the original cast. That film will be released by Disney on October 15, 2021, and will be many folks’ first opportunity to see the production outside of the album.

While I see this as a pretty straightforward filmed stage production, Disney is coining this as “a lea forward int eh art of live capture. This movie transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way. Combining the best elements of live theater and film, the result is a cinematic stage performance that is a wholly new way to experience Hamilton.” Will this actually mean something more than a traditional filming of a production? I’m excited to see…but we do have well over a year and a half to wait still.

The original Broadway cast appearing in the film include Tony Award® winners Lin-Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton; Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson; Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler; Leslie Odom, Jr. as Aaron Burr; Tony Award® nominees Christopher Jackson as George Washington; Jonathan Groff as King George; Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton; and Jasmine Cephas Jones as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds; Okieriete Onaodowan as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison; and Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.

“I fell in love with musical storytelling growing up with the legendary Howard Ashman-Alan Menken Disney collaborations – The Little Mermaid, Beauty and The Beast, Aladdin,” said Lin-Manuel Miranda. “I’m so proud of what Tommy Kail has been able to capture in this filmed version of Hamilton – a live theatrical experience that feels just as immediate in your local movie theater. We’re excited to partner with Disney to bring the original Broadway company of Hamilton to the largest audience possible.”

“We are thrilled for fans of the show, and new audiences across the world, to experience what it was like on stage – and in the audience – when we shot this at The Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway in June of 2016. We wanted to give everyone the same seat, which is what this film can provide,” said Thomas Kail.

Honestly, I’m surprised they’re not taking advantage of this 2020 election to get people pumped, as October of this year would have been a prime time to release it. 

Anyway, what do you think of the “movie” hitting theaters next year? Sound off in the comments down below!
