The Walt Disney Company on Monday confirmed the Oct. 15, 2021, release of “Hamilton” the movie. The film features the original Broadway cast led by Lin-Manuel Miranda performing the musical in a theater/film hybrid, “a leap forward in the art of live capture,” Monday’s announcement said.

“We are thrilled for fans of the show, and new audiences across the world, to experience what it was like on stage — and in the audience — when we shot this at The Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway in June of 2016. We wanted to give everyone the same seat, which is what this film can provide,” said director Thomas Kail.

In addition to Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, the original Broadway cast featured in the film includes: Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson; Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler; Leslie Odom, Jr. as Aaron Burr; Christopher Jackson as George Washington; Jonathan Groff as King George; Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton; Jasmine Cephas Jones as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds; Okieriete Onaodowan as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison; and Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.

The Chicago stage production of “Hamilton” closed in January after a record-setting three-year run. It was the first production of the Tony Award-winning musical to be staged outside of Broadway, when it opened in 2016.
