Disney+ is not throwing away its shot quite yet. The streaming service has announced that it will further capitalize on Hamilton mania with another special, Hamilton: History Has Its Eyes on You. Hosted by ABC anchor Robin Roberts, the intimate discussion will give Lin-Manuel Miranda, Leslie Odom Jr., Philippa Soo, and their fellow stars an opportunity to reflect on the Broadway musical and its enduring legacy. The special Hamilton conversation will stream tomorrow, Friday, July 10, exclusively on Disney+.
Like Disney+’s previous roundtable with ESPN’s The Undefeated, Hamilton: History Has Its Eyes on You will reunite the original cast and give them a space to discuss the musical’s immense popularity. A slew of original Hamilton stars are slated to appear, including creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda, director Thomas Kail, Christopher Jackson (George Washington), Leslie Odom Jr.(Aaron Burr), Phillipa Soo (Eliza Hamilton), Renée Elise Goldsberry, (Angelica Schuyler), and Daveed Diggs (Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson).
In addition, Disney has recruited Harvard historian and professor Annette Gordon-Reed to share her insight on the historical relevance and accuracy of Hamilton, a topic that has dominated social media since the musical first hit Disney+ on July 3.
Roberts first announced the new Hamilton special this morning on Good Morning America. The ABC morning show introduced a teaser of the special, which sees the cast and crew share personal stories about the production and explain how the show forever altered their careers.
“It was an immense pleasure speaking with this talented group,” said Roberts. “After you listen to their insights and perspectives it will heighten your viewing of Hamilton. Such an engaging, enlightening conversation.”
Hamilton: History Has Its Eyes On You is produced by Rock ‘n Robin Productions and ABC News for Disney+. In addition to hosting, Roberts serves as an executive producer alongside John R. Green.
Disney+’s new Hamilton special premieres tomorrow, July 10. Check out the GMA teaser above.
