The first official trailer for the “Hamilton” film has been dropped, ahead of its early release on Disney+ next month. “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted the teaser with the caption, “May you always be satisfied…”
The movie version of “Hamilton,” the smash-hit Broadway musical that won 11 Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, was set to hit theaters Oct. 15, 2021. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now coming to the streaming service Disney+ on July 3.
The 60-second trailer opens with the words, “Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the show.” The movie version of “Hamilton” draws from live performances featuring the original Broadway cast shot by the show’s director, Thomas Kail, at New York City’s Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2016.
