"Hamilton," Lin-Manuel Miranda's Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, is coming onto the small screen, premiering on July 3 at the Disney streaming service.

Miranda and Disney previously announced in February that in October 2021 a movie version of the hugely popular Tony-winning musical featuring the original Broadway cast would hit theatres.

Miranda joined The Walt Disney Company's executive chairman Bob Iger in an announcement on Tuesday's "Good Morning America," lauding the ability of the film to preserve past performances.

"We filmed this in June 2016 over three days," he said. "It was the week before the principals left, I think it was the week before Pippa (Phillipa Soo), Leslie (Odom Jr.) and I left, and Ariana DeBose from the ensemble ... And it just captures that moment so beautifully in time.

"Watching it brings me to that incredible, once-in-a-lifetime company right back there," he added. "And I just can't wait to see you."

"It basically gives everyone the best seat in the house at home," Miranda said, "and it's a thrilling experience. He's really threading the needle between those cinematic close-ups and widening and watching the show from the centre aisle of the Richard Rodgers Theatre."

The production's official Instagram account also announced the news Tuesday.

"Shout it onto the rooftops!" read the caption. "Hamilton 's original Broadway production, filmed LIVE on stage at the Richard Rodgers Theater, is now exclusively coming to @DisneyPlus this # Hamilfilm on July 3rd."

Social media site users shared their pleasure at the comments.

"Oh , my God!!! This is my son's best birthday present ever!" one exclaimed.

"This is going on in my PEN planner and it'll NOT get corona-ed!!!!!" another user wrote, referring to the numerous delays caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Unlike movie musicals like "Les Miserables," "Chicago" and most recently "Cats," which were Hollywood versions of the Broadway shows, "Hamilton" is a filmed version of the stage production – recorded in June 2016 – that's "a live theatrical experience that feels just as immediate in your local movie theatre," Miranda said in a statement at the time.

Miranda as Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis de Lafayette / Thomas Jefferson, Renee Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler, Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Christopher Jackson as George Washington, and Jonathan Groff as King George, "Frozen" star, are original cast members.

The musical won 11 Tonys and was awarded the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for drama as well as a Grammy Award for best album in musical theatre.

Miranda's fruitful relationship with Disney is continued by the film "Hamilton." He won an Oscar nomination for "How Far I'll Go," one of the songs he wrote for the 2016 animated movie "Moana," and for his performance in the studio's "Mary Poppins Returns" was nominated for a Golden Globe. Miranda is also contributing to the upcoming remake of his animated classic "The Little Mermaid" in the studio.

Miranda and more than a dozen cast members from the show gathered on John Krasinski's "Some Good News" video chat last month to brighten the birthday of Aubrey, a 9-year-old resident of Florida, who was crushed when a musical performance in Jacksonville was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Krasinski and his wife, actress Emily Blunt promised the girl they would fly her family to New York and get them tickets when the COVID-19 pandemic subsides to see "Hamilton."

The face of the young girl instantly lit up but there was no end to the surprises. Miranda "Zoom bombarded" his own interview with some good news.

"I think we can now top that," he tinkered. "If you can't go to 'Hamilton' then we'll bring you 'Hamilton.'"

Aubrey then watched in shock as Miranda and more than a dozen cast members sang "Alexander Hamilton" from the hit show, each at his or her own home.
