A filmed version of "Hamilton," the wildly popular Broadway musical written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, will be making its way to Disney Plus on July 3. The movie adaptation, which seeks to emulate the in-person theatrical experience of "Hamilton," is arriving on Disney Plus more than a year before its intended October 2021 release date. You can purchase a Disney Plus subscription for $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year, or in a bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu for $12.99 per month.

The movie version of the musical, which explores the life of Alexander Hamilton during and beyond the American Revolution, is arriving on Disney's streaming service far earlier than its anticipated October 2021 release date. The official trailer shows the Broadway production's original cast from 2015 returning to the stage for the movie performance.

The film adaptation intends to provide viewers with a cinematic glimpse into the live theater experience. Disney Plus is already home to similar musical adaptations, including the filmed stage version of "Newsies." Also coming to Disney Plus on July 3 is "Hamilton In-Depth with Kelley Carter," a companion program that features interviews with director Thomas Kail, composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, and members of the cast. The program will stream on TheUndefeated.com as well. The cinematic rendition of "Hamilton" follows the titular historical figure (played by composer Lin-Manuel Miranda) as he grapples with the impact of the American Revolution, the legacy we leave behind, and those who shaped his life leading up to the infamous duel with Aaron Burr (Leslie Odom Jr.). Filmed at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2016, the "Hamilton" film features the original cast of the musical. Updated on 07/2/2020 by Kevin Webb: Added details about Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support for "Hamilton" on Disney Plus. Also added premiere details for "Hamilton In-Depth with Kelley Carter," along with a link to our full review of Disney Plus. How do I watch 'Hamilton' on Disney Plus?
On July 3, 2020, "Hamilton" will be available for all Disney Plus subscribers. This is the premiere release of the movie; it has yet to be released in theaters or on Blu-ray, DVD, or as a digital download. The Disney Plus stream of "Hamilton" will include support for Dolby Vision HDR video and Dolby Atmos audio through compatible devices. Dolby Vision enables enhanced colors and contrast, while Dolby Atmos creates an immersive soundstage with audio effects from all directions — even from above your head. Disney Plus is available to stream on Apple, PC, iOS, and Android devices, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and streaming devices from Amazon, Roku, and Chromecast. Disney Plus is also supported on smart TVs, including those from Samsung, LG, Sony, and Vizio. An internet connection is necessary to stream, but Disney Plus also provides an option to download movies and shows to mobile devices for offline viewing. What is Disney Plus and how much does it cost? Disney Plus is a subscription streaming platform with on-demand access to a variety of movies and TV shows. An annual subscription costs $69.99 per year while a monthly subscription costs $6.99 per month. If you do the math, this means that you can save about $14 a year if you pay for an annual membership rather than a month-to-month subscription. Those looking for additional streaming content can sign up for a bundle with Disney Plus, ESPN+ and Hulu. The bundle costs $12.99 per month, which is about $5 less per month than it would cost to subscribe to each service separately. All Disney Plus subscriptions include ad-free streaming and unlimited downloads for a growing library of films and TV series. Here is a full breakdown of all the Disney Plus pricing options and features. What else can I watch on Disney Plus? Disney Plus is home to many musical-movies like "Hamilton." The stage-to-screen adaptation of "Newsies" follows a similar "live capture" format to "Hamilton," bringing the popular musical to any Disney Plus-enabled device. The streaming service also features many other movie-musicals, although not on-stage adaptations. This includes the 1999 edition of "Annie," as well as animated classics like "Aladdin," "The Little Mermaid," and "Beauty and the Beast." "Moana," which also features music penned by Lin-Manuel Miranda, is available to stream as well. Beyond musicals, Disney Plus is chock-full of additional titles stemming from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and 20th Century Fox.

The service is also home to exclusive UFC pay-per view events, including UFC 251 on July 11. You can access ESPN+ via the existing ESPN app on a variety of streaming players, mobile devices, and smart TVs. It costs $4.99 per month or $49.99 annually, saving you $10 on the monthly price. You can also bundle ESPN+ with Hulu and Disney+ for $12.99 a month. See also: Disney Plus: Everything you need to know about Disney's ad-free streaming service Streaming has largely overtaken cable and satellite as the preferred method to watch movies and TV shows at your leisure. Low price points and the ability to watch on the go are primary reasons for the migration, but one sector has largely resisted any such paradigm shift — professional sports. If you're a sports fan, you might be shelling out for traditional cable just to watch your favorite team. Hefty deals between sports leagues and TV networks have prevented services like Netflix from streaming games, but ESPN now has a low-cost service that should satiate many sports fans' appetites. Updated on 07/10/2020 by Steven Cohen: We've revised this article to include details about upcoming UFC events on ESPN+, including UFC 251 on July 11. What is ESPN+? ESPN+ is a streaming subscription service that's considered a complement to existing ESPN content, not technically a separate platform. Think of it as an add-on to the standard ESPN app with live games, exclusive on-demand videos, and access to what was formerly known as ESPN Insider. Previously, ESPN Insider offered subscribers exclusive written articles for a monthly $4.99 fee. ESPN decided to add video to the mix and created ESPN+ for the same price, giving subscribers access to stories, live streaming, and on-demand videos. What's included with ESPN+? ESPN+ includes a bevy of exclusive video content from live games to on-demand shows and exclusive stories. Unfortunately, the live games come with commercials — just like regular TV. Subscribers can watch live games from the MLB, NHL, and MLS when their seasons are active; there are no live NBA or NFL games. There's also PGA golf, UFC, college football, international soccer, and tennis. In addition to games, ESPN+ also features original shows, including in-depth game recaps and analyses hosted by Peyton Manning and Daniel Cormier, and a shorter version of "NFL Primetime." Documentary programs, like "30 for 30," as well as full replays of historic NFL games are also available to stream on-demand. Does ESPN+ offer UFC PPV and UFC Fight Night events? If you're a fan of UFC or boxing, ESPN+ will often offer exclusive pay-per-view (PPV) matches so you'll get even more content from the service. The PPV events cost $64.99 for existing subscribers. The next UFC PPV event will be UFC 251 on July 11. In addition to PPV matches, ESPN+ also features access to UFC Fight Night events, including a trio of events set to take place on UFC's Fight Island in Abu Dhabi. Fight Night events are typically included as part of a regular ESPN+ subscription for $4.99 per month. What's not included with ESPN+? ESPN+ is technically separate from ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNews, so a subscription will not grant you access to live games being broadcast on those networks, including any live games during Monday Night Football and Sunday Night Baseball. That said, MLB games are still available to be streamed. New docuseries currently airing on ESPN, like "The Last Dance," are also not included with a subscription. With that said, programs like this could be added to the ESPN+ library at a later date. Your ESPN+ account is not the same as a cable login with access to the ESPN networks, so there's no way of getting around it either. How much does ESPN+ cost? An ESPN+ subscription will only run you $4.99 per month, or $49.99 annually — $10 less than what you'd pay if you go month to month. There's also a combo package that bundles ESPN+ with Hulu and the new Disney Plus streaming service for just $12.99 per month — a $5 savings each month compared to getting all three services separately. Where can I watch ESPN+? One of the cool things about ESPN+ is that you can access it through the current ESPN app. Instead of launching a separate app, all the ESPN+ content is unlocked in the ESPN app once you subscribe. The app is available on virtually every platform you can imagine — phones, tablets, laptops, Roku players, Fire TV products, Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, PS4, Xbox One, and Samsung smart TVs. You can also stream on up to three devices simultaneously with one account. How do I sign up for ESPN+? Head over to the ESPN+ website and create an account, or open your existing ESPN account and you'll be prompted to sign up.
