  1. 1Alexander Hamilton, who?


    While you already know that Hamilton is a Pulitzer Prize-winning broadway musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda, do you actually know the true-to-life events that inspired this brilliant work of art? Well, it's actually about Alexander Hamilton, one of the founding fathers of the United States of America. To say that he is great is an understatement, but just to highlight one of his biggest contributions, he established America's monetary system. But the thing is, it is told from the perspective of Aaron Burr, Hamilton's contestant. So if you are looking for a film to watch this 4th of July, you may opt to watch Hamilton.

  1. 2Who is Lin-Manuel Miranda?


    Lin-Manuel Miranda isn't only the director of the show. He was the original actor who played Alexander Hamilton! And yes, some of the original cast of the play already left but he stayed. He is also the brilliant mind behind the show's music and lyrics. He's truly a gem.

  2. 3Is it a live show or a movie?


    Just to be clear, this is the filmed version of the stage show that was held in Richard Rodgers Theatre back in 2016. Interestingly, it took them roughly 3 days to film the entire show. They devoted 2 days to shoot with a live audience and another day for close-ups and tight shots. Talk about being detail-oriented, right? So think of this as a post-treat from Disney+ for letting you re-watch one of the most revolutionary plays-slash-films of all time. With Thomas Kail behind the camera directing the show, you can be sure that his artistic prowess will manifest.

  1. 4Why do you need to watch this movie?


    Just because why not? This isn't about being an American citizen. This is about us, this is about you. For ardent fans of musicals, the riveting plot and the interesting storytelling must be enough to encourage you to watch Hamilton. But on another level, it is the movie's audacious take on the Founding Fathers and Mothers--the cast are mostly Black, Asian, and Latin. Hence, it is clear that Hamilton can stir a great political discourse in the near future. Now, you are starting to realize why this has won the Pulitzer Prize award!

  2. 5How and where can you watch it?


    Hamilton is now showing on Disney+. And as of the writing, there's no other option where you can stream it. The thing is, initially, it was set to hit theatres on October 15, 2021. But thank goodness for Disney+! Imagine having to celebrate Independence Day by watching Hamilton. We can see no better option for you. If commitment issues scare the living daylights out of you, we can totally assure you that you can cancel anytime you want when you subscribe to Disney. Another certain thing is that you won't--just because you'll get to enjoy other titles Disney+ carries.
