Alexander Hamilton, meet Disney+.
"Hamilton," the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical from Lin-Manuel Miranda, is coming to the small screen, premiering on the Disney streaming service July 3.
Miranda and Disney previously announced in February that a film version of the popular Tony-winning musical featuring the original Broadway cast would hit theaters in October 2021.
But Miranda joined executive chairman of the Walt Disney Co. Bob Iger to make a May 12 announcement on "Good Morning America" about the new plan, lauding the film's ability to preserve the performance of the past.
"We filmed this over three days in June of 2016," he said. "It was the week before the principals started to leave, I think it was the week before Pippa (Phillipa Soo), Leslie (Odom Jr.) and I left, and Ariana DeBose from the ensemble. ... And it just captures that moment in time so beautifully.
"Watching it brings me right back there with that incredible, once-in-a-lifetime company. And I just can't wait for you to see it."
Miranda praised director Tommy Kail during the "Good Morning America" announcement.
"He's basically given everyone at home the best seat in the house, and it's a thrilling experience," Miranda said.
"He really threads the needle between these cinematic closeups and widening out and seeing the show from the center aisle of the Richard Rodgers Theatre."
Unlike such movie musicals as "Les Miserables," "Chicago" and most recently "Cats" that were Hollywood versions of the Broadway shows, "Hamilton" is a filmed version of the stage production that's "a live theatrical experience that feels just as immediate in your local movie theater," Miranda also said in a statement.
Original cast members appearing include Miranda as Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson, Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Christopher Jackson as George Washington and "Frozen" star Jonathan Groff as King George.
The musical won 11 Tonys and was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Price for drama, as well as a Grammy Award for best musical theater album.
The "Hamilton" film continues Miranda's fruitful relationship with Disney.
He earned an Oscar nomination for "How Far I'll Go," one of the songs he wrote for the 2016 animated film "Moana," and was nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in the studio's "Mary Poppins Returns."
Miranda also is contributing to the studio's upcoming remake of its animated classic "The Little Mermaid."
