Combining the best elements of live theater, film, and streaming, the result is a cinematic stage performance that is a wholly new way to experience "Hamilton".

In the quarter-millennium since "ten-dollar founding father" Alexander Hamilton took a bullet for his beliefs - if a senseless death by duel can reasonably be described in such idealistic terms - America has fought pandemics and wars, prejudice and inequality, inching slowly toward a more flawless union. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, Hamilton has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre - a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics, and education.

The film is described as a "leap forward in the art of "live capture" which transports its audience into the world of the Broadway show in a uniquely intimate way.

It is produced by Thomas Kail, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeffrey Seller, with Sander Jacobs and Jill Furman serving as executive producers.

A TV Guide report said the movie will feature the original Broadway cast of "Hamilton", which also Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, Leslie Odom, Aaron Burr, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Jonathan Groff as King George, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Jasmine Cephas Jones as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds, Okieriete Onaodowan as Hercules Mulligan/James Madison, and Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Philip Hamilton.
