Hamilton Is Now Trending At #1 On Disney Plus


With so many streaming platforms to choose from and all of them having such exceptional collections of content, deciding which ones to subscribe to can be difficult at times. Sure, Netflix is the most popular, but it’s also now losing a lot of fan-favorite Disney and Marvel movies to Disney’s own fairly new service, Disney Plus.

For big fans of the Mouse House’s content, the platform has rapidly become a no-brainer and July’s offerings have been wonderful so far, with such classics as The Mighty Ducks and The Big Green, the often overlooked Race to Witch Mountain, and a recorded version of the revered musical Hamilton.

Speaking of which, after debuting on Friday, Hamilton has made its way comfortably to the very top of Disney Plus’ trending chart with no signs of giving up its spot anytime too soon. This fantastic performance with the principal cast was shot in the Richard Rodgers Theatre in 2016 and purchased by Walt Disney Studios for $75 million in February of this year. That’s an awful lot of money, so it’s obvious Disney was well aware of the impact the recording would have on its subscribers.

If you’re unaware, Hamilton follows the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton using hip-hop, R&B and other similar genres to tell its story in a uniquely compelling manner. The show is critically-acclaimed and often cited as being about “America then, as told by American now” due to its bold and interesting choice to cast non-white actors as Founding Fathers. It’s an extremely enjoyable watch with tunes that are sure to get stuck in your head, so if you’re willing to sit still for nearly 3 hours, you’re unlikely to regret your choice.
