'Hamilton' Movie Coming to Theaters with Original Broadway Cast!

Hamilton is hitting the big screen!

Disney has announced they will be releasing the 11-time Tony Award winning Broadway musical in theaters – and the original 2015 cast will starring in it.

The upcoming Hamilton movie will not be an adaption of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s musical, but rather a “live capture” of a stage performance. It was shot at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in Manhattan before founding members began leaving the production.

“Lin-Manuel Miranda created an unforgettable theater experience and a true cultural phenomenon, and it was for good reason that Hamilton was hailed as an astonishing work of art. All who saw it with the original cast will never forget that singular experience,” said Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company said in a statement. “And we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to share this same Broadway experience with millions of people around the world.”

The original Broadway cast includes Lin-Manuel as Alexander Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Jonathan Groff as King George, Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, and Phillipa Soo as Eliza 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,” Lin-Manuel shared. “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.”

Hamilton will be out in theaters on October 15, 2021.
