One week after premiering Hamilton, the filmed version of the original Broadway production, the Disney+ streaming platform has added a new cast reunion special conversation, Hamilton: History Has Its Eyes on You, to its line-up.
Hosted by ABC News’ Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts, Hamilton: History Has Its Eyes On You is an intimate discussion about the film that has become a global phenomenon and features Hamilton’s creator, its director and cast members of the original Broadway production. A Harvard Historian also shares insight on the historical relevance and accuracy of the production.
“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.”

Okieriete Onaodowan (Hercules Mulligan and James Madison) appears in the tape piece at the top of the show.
This special encompasses topics that range from questions about the show’s creation and creative process to its remarkable relevance and today’s current social and political realities.
