Hamilton was scheduled to release in theaters in 2021, however Disney has moved Lin-Manuel Miranda’s movie, to July 3rd on Disney Plus. A new trailer was just released.

Originally given a R-rating, f bombs had to be been censored or edited out, but the gun violence and sexually suggestive material have stayed. According to Miranda who sees the f word as no problem stated “You can sing whatEVER you like at home (even sync up the album)!”

Hamilton, began it’s life Off Broadway life at at the The Public Theater in February 2015 and opened on Broadway August 6, 2015 winning a record of 16 Tony nominations. The show won 11.

It also took Best Musical, score, director, choreography, book, orchestrations, costumes and lighting.

On the opposite end of the spectrum In the Heights was due out June 2020 but due to the coronvairus outbreak, the film will now be released the following summer, 2021. Could this be because Miranda also produces, as well as portrays Piraguero, the Washington Heights local who sells flavored ice from a cart?
