Prior to the announcement, the film production of Hamilton was set to hit streaming services on October 15th, 2021.

Now, however, the movie will be available to viewers on July 3rd—the day before the American Independence Day.

The movie, which was produced from segments of the hit play that were filmed at the Richard Rodgers Theater in June 2016, was reportedly directed by the musical’s stage director Thomas Kail.

The musical’s writer and lead actor Lin-Manuel Miranda welcomed the newly-announced release date on Twitter, saying that he has “never been so happy/nervous” for anything in his life.

Since the Broadway star published a teaser clip of the movie’s release to social media, it has been viewed more than 4 million times on Twitter alone.
