Get ready for Hamilton the movie
The Hamilton trailer's arrived, and we get to watch the original Broadway cast perform the hit show on Disney+ from the best seats in the house (literally)
On Friday 3 July, Disney+ will be worth its £59.99 annual subscription fee on that one night alone thanks to the arrival of one very special, very spectacular, show: Hamilton.
Not only will we get to watch Lin-Manuel Miranda's blockbuster show from the best seats in the house – our living-room sofa, naturally – the production airing on Disney+ will feature the original Broadway cast.
So that's Lin-Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, Leslie Odom Jr as Aaron Burr, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Schuyler, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton, Jonathan Groff as King George III and Okieriete Onaodowan as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison. Everyone you've been listening to on the soundtrack for the past two years. This is huge!
Hamilton musical tickets were selling for as much as £250 at one stage, so this is a bargain – we won't be throwing away our shot.
Surely, for parents who are so over home-schooling they've moved onto unschooling, this is an occasion to celebrate: an American history lesson couched in some of the best songs ever written.
Enjoy the trailer below…
