Hamilton is a professionally filmed recording of Hamilton released on Disney+, shot in June 2016 over 3 days at the Richard Rodgers Theater and featuring a majority of the original Broadway cast, minus Betsy Struxness and Emmy Raver-Lampman. It was released on Disney+ on July 3, 2020, though it was originally scheduled for a theatrical release on October 15, 2021. The release date was set forward by 15 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1]

Trivia Edit

  • In order to have the film receive a PG-13 rating rather than an R-rating, the word "fuck" is censored in both "Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)" and "Washington On Your Side".[2]
  • The film was largely promoted in the months leading to release as starring the "Original Broadway Cast" due to including all of the original principals, including Jonathan Groff (who had left the April before the show was filmed). However, Betsy Struxness and Emmy Raver-Lampman had both exited the production in March and April respectively, with their ensemble tracks covered by Hope Easterbrook and Elizabeth Judd. Struxness in particular was vocal about the mislabeling of the production, and received support from Javier Muñoz on Twitter.
