Hamilton is finally being added to Disney Plus UK - but how can you watch it and at what time?

Since it hit theatres back in 2015, the musical Hamilton has taken the world by storm.

From starting out in New York and then expanding to Chicago the following year and then finally coming to London’s West End back in 2017, the Hamilton musical has developed a cult following for its entertaining retelling of a key part of history through culturally relevant means.

And with theatres across the country (and most of the world), currently closed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent lockdown, the team behind the musical theatre force has brought it to our TV screens.

Back in May, the Hamilton team revealed that they would be releasing a filmed version of the original Broadway production on the new Disney Plus streaming platform.

For anyone hoping to join the revolution from the UK, Hamilton is available on Disney Plus now.

It hit the streaming platform earlier today on Friday 3rd July at 8am, having been brought forward 15 months from its original air date of 15th October 2021.

The film premiered alongside a half an hour documentary featuring a roundtable discussion with nine of the show’s biggest stars opening up on their experience of the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical.

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
