Disney+ is bringing the Broadway stage to your living room with its exclusive recording of one of the most popular plays in modern history: Hamilton. Featuring the original production and cast, including creator Lin Manuel-Miranda, Hamilton is an American musical which blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and Broadway genres for musical numbers that truly are in a world of their own.
This Broadway recording of Hamilton was filmed at The Richard Rodgers Theatre back in June 2016, and now audiences can get a better look at all the choreography and action on stage that can get missed on stage when you're watching from the nosebleeds. Disney+ is premiering the film on July 3 just in time for the 4th of July holiday.
What shows and movies does Disney+ offer?
Along with Hamilton, Disney+ has a modest selection of documentaries and shows to take you behind-the-scenes of films like Star Wars and Pixar animated movies. Members can also watch pretty much every animated Disney film there is, including Frozen and The Lion King, along with Marvel superhero films, Disney Channel Original Movies and TV series, National Geographic documentaries, and more.
How do you get a free Disney+ trial?
Unfortunately, Disney+ doesn't offer a free trial at this time. While the service previously offered new subscribers a free 7-day trial, that's no longer the case. Luckily, Disney+ is one of the most affordable streaming services out there and pretty much essential for households with children.
How much does Disney+ cost?
Disney+ is one of the most affordable streaming services to date, which is wild considering all that it has to offer already after just seven months of being available in select countries. WIth currency conversions, there is some variation in pricing based on which country you live in ($6.99/£5.99/AU$8.99), though you can save and drop the monthly cost even lower by paying for a full year of membership instead.
