'Hamilton' get its first trailer ahead of release on Disney+

  'Hamilton' get its first trailer ahead of release on Disney+ The first trailer for Lin-Manuel Miranda's record-breaking Broadway musical Hamilton has landed, ahead of its release on Disney+. As with the original production of the show, Miranda plays the lead role of American founding father Alexander Hamilton in the filmed version of the stage production, directed by Tommy Kail, who also directed the show for Broadway. Alongside Miranda on the bill are Leslie Odom Jr as Aaron Burr, Daveed Diggs as Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Jonathan Groff as King George III, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton and Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler.

Miranda was in Britain, filming Mary Poppins Returns. (He played the lamplighter.)

Lin-Manuel Miranda isn't sure if he'll ever take his shot at turning Hamilton into a Hollywood movie.

The Tony Award-winning historical musical will be coming to Disney+ in a special shot by director Thomas Kail, capturing the original cast shortly before they left the production in 2016.

Lin - Manuel Miranda has revealed that the new Hamilton musical movie will be censored when it debuts on Disney+ next month to avoid an automatic R rating.

Lin - Manuel Miranda : To be honest, I probably watch myself least when I’m watching this movie . When I watch it, I see me at the most tired I have ever It needs to be free from that , because you’ll fail. That ’s something I’m going to be tasked with when I’m being asked to make a movie of “Fiddler on

Yet, Miranda has admitted to Variety that he's not convinced Hamilton will follow the same path as In The Heights, explaining: "I don't love a lot of movie musicals based on shows because it's hard to stick the landing. I'm very proud of Jon Chu's version of In the Heights.

"It is a different animal than the stage production. As long as I think of those as different things, it's exciting. I don't know what a cinematic version of Hamilton looks like. If I had, I'd have written it as a movie. I know [director] Tommy [Kail] has the right of first refusal."

Kail added: "I don't know what the narrative feature of Hamilton looks like either. But my sense is that – and Lin might have struck on the key to it for me – when you are making an adaptation of a musical that is a movie, it shouldn't necessarily try to be the stage play.
