    I’m confused. Disney is going release a stage version of Hamilton? Don’t you mean a movie version? Hamilton was on the Broadway stage for years.

    It’s a filmed performance of the original Broadway cast. It will be released in movie theaters but it is not a “movie.” It’s a film of the live stage production. Like Great Performances on PBS or all of those live telecasts of stuff from the National (but not live.)
