This July, you’re getting the best seat in the house for Hamilton and you aren’t paying hundreds of dollars for it!
On July 3, Disney+ will begin streaming the Lin-Manuel Miranda smash Broadway musical, which follows the life of Alexander Hamilton and the Founding Fathers.
The version of the original production was filmed at the Richard Rodgers Theatre on Broadway in June of 2016.
While you’ll be able to enjoy it from your living room, Miranda has gone out of his way to give you full Broadway experience. He tweeted the screen-adaptation will feature “whole show, every note & scene, & a 1-minute countdown clock during intermission.”
Here’s everything you need to know about streaming Hamilton on Disney+
How to Watch?
Hamilton will be available to Disney+ subscribers. You can stream it on online or on your streaming devices.
How Much Does Disney+ Cost?
You can snag a subscription with on-demand access annually for $69.99 per year or monthly for $6.99. The annual membership saves you about $14 yearly. This gives you access to all of Disney and Marvel content!
You can also get the bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu for an additional $12.99 a month. Bundling the three gives you a 25% savings or roughly $5 bundled rather than subscribing to each service separately.
What’s Hamilton Rated?
Miranda recently revealed the screen adaptation will be exactly the same as the stage performance sans two swear words. In order to qualify for the “PG-13” rating, the film must not have more than one swear word. The rating warns of “language and some suggestive material.”
Is It Worth My Money?
Disney has an extensive catalog and much like other streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime, it adds new content monthly from classic films, shows and cartoons, animated films, and brand new originals.
For those who like Hamilton, Disney+ also offers the stage-to-screen film adaptation of Newsies. And if you’re looking for more of Miranda’s work, Disney+ is streaming the reboot of Mary Poppins and Moana.
25 Shows You Need to Watch If You Love the City of Chicago
With a population of over 2.7 million, Chicago is a dynamic and diverse city, which makes it the perfect backdrop for many TV shows, especially cop and medical dramas!
Some shows use the city as just a setting, while others dig right into the core of the city, hoping to capture its essence.
No one series has a “correct” depiction — they are all stories seen through various characters, experiencing different situations in the many, versatile neighborhoods.
But, one thing that they all have in common? An undying love for the city; their Chicago. If you’ve been to Chicago you’ve probably heard the phrase, “Chicago is the new Hollywood.”
Truthfully, Chicago will never churn out as many TV shows as Hollywood, and it doesn’t want to; the rise in shows signifies everyone can find something to relate to in the city of Chicago.
So, if you have even a sliver of love for Chi-town, you have to check out these shows. Let us know if you have any other recommendations!

Seeing Double: 21 Memorable TV Show Twins
Hollywood has a bit of twin obsession but sometimes, seeing double isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Twins on TV shows is a pretty popular trope ranging from evil twins, twins who get into shenanigans together, and long lost twins who bump into each other and start a new life together.
Other times, twins are used solely as a plot device.
But really, there’s no shortage of switcheroo tomfoolery when twins are involved.
Sometimes, the actors are famous twin duos in real life, and other times, a sole actor is brilliantly pulling double duty.
Let’s take a look back at some of our favorite TV twins both fraternal and identical.
You may even come across a few doppelgangers.
1. Cheryl and Jason Blossom – Riverdale
2. Zack and Cody – Suite Life of Zack & Cody
3. Tia and Tamera – Sister, Sister
4. Olive and Cal – Manifest
5. Brenda and Brandon – 90210
6. Petra and Anezka – Jane the Virgin

I Put a Spell on You – All the ‘Hocus Pocus’ Merch You Need This Halloween
You don’t need to put a spell on me for all these Hocus Pocus-inspired items to be miiiine!
Hocus Pocus may have premiered 27 years ago, but the witchy Sanderson sisters still reign supreme.
The cultish hit remains one of the most iconic films in existence and is a must watch every Halloween season.
Best of all, it inspires new merchandise every year.
We’ve gathered all of the items you’re going to need to celebrate Halloween 2020 the right way just like the “sistah’s” Winnie, Sarah, and Mary!
Hocus Pocus Board Game
Ravensburger’s board game, “Hocus Pocus: The Game” allows you to put yourself in the shoes of a virgin who lights the black flame candle and summons the Sanderson sister. The packaging looks like a spell book and requires you to stop the witches from completing a potion before sunrise. It’s a game that actually makes sense in the context of the film — how refreshing! Get it at Target for 19.99!
There are some people who think COVID is all a bunch of hocus pocus, but the reality of the situation is that you have to do your part by wearing a mask and helping curb the spread. And why not do it in style this fall season with face masks inspired by the movie? The internet has plenty to choose from, but our favorite is the one that allows you to channel your inner-Sanderson sister! The masks, made by Bucktee, retail for $13.95, and allow you to wear Winnie’s mug, Sarah’s smile, or Mary’s signature lip bite. You’ll have people screaming “Amok! Amok! Amok!”
As I mentioned previously, the movie is turning 27 so ShopDisney released a new spirit jersey that’s ombre green — the color of any promising potion — and features the logo in the front and a cartoon version of the sisters in the back! The jersey is “coming soon,” so get ready for a fall arrival!

Nestle Cookie Dough
I smell…. children. No, wait, that’s actually Nestle Toll House Hocus Pocus-themed cookie dough! Yes, it’s a thing. The oatmeal peanut butter flavored cookie dough will be released early this fall.
If you’re not a fan of cookie dough, buy it for someone who is a fan because the packaging, which features the trio of sisters eyeing the delicious snack, is to die for.
Turn your home into the Sanderson house! Everyone knows that the best part about Halloween is dressing up your space with spooktastic decorations. Spirit Halloween is selling a light-up Hocus Pocus mantel scarf that will give your space a witchy vibe.
It features the Sanderson sisters flying over Salem amongst the trees of LED lights.
You can cast a spell in no time with the tie-dye fluorescent mug that features one of the film’s most iconic lines: it’s all a bunch of hocus pocus. The cup is shaped like a cauldron with a “wooden” stirring spoon. What are you waiting for? Grab your potions book and grab a spot in line because *for now* this mug is sold out at ShopDisney.
Fill ’em up with a potion that keeps you happy and young! Spirit Halloween has several fun and Hocus Pocus-themed wine glasses, but our favorite is definitely the one featuring the quote: “Goodbye cruel world.” That about sums up 2020. You can get the wine glasses for $9!
