The award takes place on March 7, with Taye Diggs returning as host for the third time.
Directed by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the film broke countless records with its narrative centered on the founding father of the United States, Alexander Hamilton, and went on to become the most-viewed production on Disney + and all streaming platforms, count given its constant success and its massive openness.
The special brings together footage from three live performances of the show, performed on stage at the Richard Rogers Theater and is not a traditional film adaptation, like the Oscar winner “ Les Miserables ” or even from the infamous recent ‘Cats’.
“ Hamilton ” debuted in off-Broadway theaters in 2015, migrating to New York City shortly after tickets went on sale.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., Daveed Diggs, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Christopher Jackson, Jonathan Groff, Phillipa Soo, Jasmine Cephas, Okieriete Onadowan and Anthony Ramos are the stars.
Based on the 2004 biography signed by Ron Chernow, the musical revolves around the first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton.
“Hamilton” won 11 Tony Awards statuettes, as well as the Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.
Other credits in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s cinema include “Moana”, the animation in which he was responsible for the soundtrack, and “The Return of Mary Poppins”, in which he played the Lighter Jack.
