In a somewhat surprising turn of events (as least these days) a movie has actually moved up on the schedule and is going right to streaming!
Disney paid a pretty penny for the rights to the filmed version of Hamilton the Musical with the original cast and was planning to release it in theaters next year. They announced instead it will be streaming this July 3rd!
It will go directly to Disney + apparently. I’ve actually been pretty excited about this one. Living in California Broadway is out of my reach (and pocket) and I do admit the traveling shows for something like Hamilton especially just don’t have the appeal without the original cast (though I’m sure they are great) so I’m happy to see this one way early!
Speaking of Disney + there’s been some Mandalorian casting news recently that I kind of wish I was unspoiled for so I’ll just link to the one I’m most excited about here and there’s the other big one that I hope is a fake out and not the character we’re all expecting!
According to the Disney CEO Baby Yoda is on track and won’t be getting delayed!
Maybe that’s why they moved Hamilton up? To take a bit of the sting out when they announce Wandavision is getting pushed which I’d bet is coming.
Meanwhile as theaters reopen there’s a lot pinned on Tenet for July 17th. It will be interesting to see if that one sticks the date and what the marketing campaign is going to look like. Well at least until this new Russell Crowe movie decided to go on July 1st…
Which I’m sorry I generally like Crowe but it’s definitely still going to be Tenet for me. Though I honestly think Mulan will be the real litmus test for the general audiences.
But until we get closer we’ll just have to keep speculating much like whether or
not we’ll ever actually get to see The New Mutants!
And like one day after posting this New Mutants gets another new release date August 28th this makes 5 release dates and if it gets pushed again I’m just going to go ahead and give up on it!

I’m sooooo excited about Hamilton!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Your blog looks different! How long has it looked like this? I LIKE IT!
I am SO EXCITING that Hamilton is coming to Disney+. Broadway is far out of my reach too, though I did get to see the touring cast when it came nearby. I’m so exciting we won’t have to wait as long as we thought for this, though it would definitely fun to have a movie theater experience.
Thank you! I thought it was time for a change 🙂
Maybe once theaters are back up and going they’ll do a special release? I’m just happy to get to see it!
Same. I’m really hoping Alamo Draft House does some kind of event. Do you all have those out west?
Probably in LA or something but I live on the backend of no place interesting 🙂 Though now they are talking about drive-throughs coming back!
We have a drive thru! It’s a super hipster downtown drive thru, but it’s almost more fun that way. I loved our old-time drive thru when we lived in the backwoods, though. 🙂
I haven’t had the chance to see Hamilton either and I didn’t know Disney was going to do it so that is super cool!!! I didn’t read the Mandalorian casting haha I was going to look but if say you would rather have been unspoiled maybe I don’t want to know after all! So thanks for the heads up 😀
I know! Stay unspoiled 🙂 I swear I don’t even mean to look for that stuff!
Unhinged looks like a tamer but different take on Saw for some reason. Getting someone to apologise… for? Yeah, I will have to find out why she needs to apologise. 😂
Also, I just checked one of the comments above re changes to your blog. It looks like a tv and film website now!
Thanks! That’s what I was aiming for 🙂
I can’t get passed the tag line I saw on the movie poster Russell Crowe is Unhinged… made me crack up and not in a way the movie probably wants.
