Hamilton (July 3)

This was supposed to be released to movie theaters in 2021. However, the COVID-19 outbreak caused Disney to launch this long-awaited filmed version of the original stage musical as an exclusive for Disney Plus. Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote and stars in this musical, which uses hip-hop and modern pop music to tell the story of one of the American founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton. This is the filmed version of the original stage production, which won 11 Tony Awards, a Grammy Award, and even the Pulitzer Prize for Best Drama.


Rogue Trip (July 24)
