‘Hamilton’ To Hit Theaters In 2021

'HAMILTON' IS COMING TO MOVIE THEATERS NEXT YEAR

(CNN) – Hamilton is hitting the big screen next year.

Lin Manuel-Miranda, who stars as Alexander Hamilton, announced the news on Twitter.

Disney is bringing the hit musical; along with the original Broadway cast to movie theaters in October 2021.

It includes previously-recorded stage performances in New York, at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where the show first opened.

The original cast includes Miranda, Daveed Diggs, Jonathan Groff, Renee Elise Goldsberry and Phillipa Soo.

Hamilton blends rap, hip-hop and R&B with classic Broadway tunes to tell the story of the Caribbean-born, French- and Scottish-heritaged Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers.

Hamilton received the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama and has won 11 Tony awards.
