Did you miss the much-acclaimed “Hamilton” back when it was playing at Miami’s Arsht Center for the Performing Arts earlier this year? The show was in full swing until the center had to close in March and all remaining shows were canceled.
Now’s your chance to see the long-awaited movie that was filmed with the original Broadway cast!
Disney Plus is streaming it starting July 3. The date of the streaming release is no accident, as the musical depicts Independence Day (July 4th), through the story of the life and death of the nation’s first secretary of the treasury, Alexander Hamilton.

In order to watch, you’ll need a subscription to Disney Plus, an on-demand, ad-free, streaming service that features a huge collection of movies and TV shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, the Star Wars franchise, National Geographic, and 20th Century Fox. The streaming service costs $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year (which is a savings of 16 percent over paying monthly).
And if you’re a Verizon Wireless customer with the unlimited plan, or if you switch to Fios or 5G home Internet, you can get a year of Disney Plus for free. After the first year, you’ll pay $6.99 a month to continue the service. It will auto-renew on your Verizon bill unless you cancel.
If you already bought a subscription to Disney Plus, you can still take advantage of this free year. Just sign up for it — your existing subscription will be paused and will resume after the free year.
