In case you haven’t heard, the hit Broadway musical Hamilton is now on Disney+ for your viewing pleasure!
A filmed version of the Broadway musical Hamilton was added to Disney+ on July 3rd, and we can’t stop watching it!
In celebration of the big event, Variety compiled some behind-the-scenes details that creator Lin-Manuel Miranda shared while rewatching the musical.
First, Miranda revealed that the beat and music over the classic Disney opening that matches the fireworks perfectly. This was Thomas Kail’s idea, the director who put together the filmed version.
The fireworks over the Disney logo? Kail's idea. #Hamilfilm

Another fun tidbit? One of Hamilton‘s star’s improved a line that was kept in. In a scene where Madison asks where he has been, actor Daveed Diggs improvised the response of “France?”. They liked it so much, it stayed in the show.
Lin-Manuel Miranda’s wife, Vanessa Nadal, even had some secrets to share too. One was that after Renée Elise Goldsberry auditioned for the role of Angelica Schuyler, Miranda told Nadal that he had finally found a woman to tell the story in the rap instead of getting eaten by the rap.
OMG! I did not know that! 🥰 https://t.co/dpVQIAhcaR
