By 2015 the name of Lin Manuel Miranda began to sound in all the headlines. He was especially recognized by lovers of Broadway musicals, but not only that, but even in his field, Miranda’s work became a phenomenon of sold-out tickets, long lines and exorbitant prices. Fortunately, Disney Plus made use of the material and filmed the musical Hamilton to be distributed in a format similar to a movie, as evidenced by its new trailer.
By this time of the year you probably already know who Lin Manuel Miranda is and what the name Hamilton means. Based on the memories of the real historical character, this musical aims to narrate the process of struggle for the independence of the United States, from the point of view of Alexander Hamilton, who created the financial system that we know of the neighboring country and considered as one of the founding fathers of that country.
Miranda writes, musicalizes, produces and also stars at the helm of the central role. Its atypical music from the Broadway musical picks up rhythms from R&B, Soul and Rap, to give the viewer a rhythmic review through history amid battles of rhymes and engaging sounds that constitute the play as one of the best-rated and beloved plays of the world. the history.
The Mickey Mouse studio at first invested in having the work filmed on stage and then being able to present it on the big screen with an agenda set for 2021. However, the arrival of Disney Plus and the momentum of the pandemic ended up placing it on the streaming platform where it was available to everyone.
The Puerto Rican Miranda is the mastermind behind the work, but for his arrival on the screen, Thomas Kell was needed to direct the camera and who was also the ideal person for the work, since he was also in charge of directing the musical in the Richard Rodgers Theater on Broadway.
Hamilton’s trailer on Disney Plus promises that viewers around the world can see the play for the first time from the comfort of their own homes, but for those who have already seen it on stage, it holds the promise of a more immersive and detailed experience of the staging.
In addition to Lin Manuel Miranda, the cast is completed by Leslie Odom Jr., Phillipa Soo. Renée Elise Goldsberry, Christopher Jackson, Daveed Diggs, Okieriete Onaodowan, Anthony Ramos, Cephas Jones and Jonathan Groff, who had on their shoulders the task of representing iconic characters in American history such as Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Aaron Burr, or the King George of England.
Hamilton premiered in other territories that already had Disney Plus, on July 3, just one day before the Independence of the United States. Mexico will receive it once the streaming platform is active in our territory, that is, from November 17 of the current year.
