Transcript for Lin-Manuel Miranda talks about 'Hamilton!' coming soon on Disney+
We are so happy to have our next guest who is joining us. He is a Tony, Emmy and grammy award Also, yes, he is the mastermind behind the Broadway musical that became a cultural phenomenon, "Hamilton," and he is bringing Broadway to your homes when it starts streaming on Disney plus on July 3rd so happy to welcome lin-manuel thank you for being with us, Lin. Happy father's day belated. I know you have two young sons, Sebastian and Francisco. Tell us how your day was. My day was great. It began with breakfast in bed and crepes. I got a very sweet drawing from my 5-year-old and a puzzle made out of cardboard from my 2-year-old. So I had a fantastic day. Sounds like a great day in my opinion. Like all of us you have been at home with the family for the last few months. Being that you are this musical genius do your kids have a favorite song they like to sing around the house? The favorites in the home right now, my 2-year-old's is "You're welcome frt "Moana." My 5-year-old's "The captain underpants" theme song by weird Al yank yenko yenkovic. Do they sing "Hamilton" songs around the house. No, we're really an "In the heights" family. When it comes to working out. We can't wait for that to come out as well. But I got to do a quick detour into politics. I guess it was inevitable someday "The room where it happened" would be the title of a white house memoir. You didn't seem too thrilled it's the title of John Bolton's memoir. Yeah, my tweet on that made my feelings pretty clear. You know, one of the themes of this show is you don't control what survives you and that swings both ways. Fair enough. Very well said. And tell us a little about, we all got so excited when we first heard it would come out, lament Hamilton, again, being streamed one more time. This whole idea that right in the middle of the summer when everybody has been waiting for more excitement is just a perfect, perfect way to see this show. Yeah, well, listen, George, you were in that room the first time when I first performed the 16 bars I had on hand? That was just unbelievable. I have got to say. That was in 2009 and I have to tell you, you know, no one can predict the way a work is received and the way "Hamilton" has been received has surpassed everyone's wildest dreams, but our biggest issue has always been accessibility so I'm really glad we had the luxury to basically shoot an independent film in our first year and now the world can see what it felt like to be in that room in June 2016 next Friday. Wow. Right around the corner. Sure is. Actually this, is not a movie version, we should mention, of your show. It is an actual Broadway show. We're going to take a listen to it right now first. The word said this kid is insane take up a collection to send him to the mainland get your education don't forget from whence you came and the world will know your name what's your name Alexander Hamilton my name is Alexander Hamilton there's a million things I haven't done just you wait just you wait I've been singing it all morning long. I'm sure not to the enjoyment of my colleagues. A little more about -- you're laughing too much, Michael. Sorry. Tell us how it was filmed. It's a pretty cool thing what you guys did. Absolutely. So this was basically a three-day film shoot. We filmed a live performance with cameras in the audience on a Sunday matinee then the audience left. We continued to film close-ups and dolly shots all night Sunday, all day Monday we filmed close-ups and steady cam and all the coverage you would want to get in a movie on our day off on Monday. Continuing to film Tuesday morning all the way to another live show Tuesday night with all the cameras in the audience in different positions so it was basically a three-day film shoot with the best rehearsed cast in the history of the movies because we had all been doing the show for a year at this point. George, Amy and myself are comparing notes. When we went to the show we were excited to watch front row on our couches. Your "In the heights" show was made into a movie but the release affected by this pandemic. So can you give us an update on what's going on with that? Absolutely. We basically kicked the ball down the field and that movie will come out June 18th of 2021. It really is meant to be -- that's a movie theater movie. It's a huge movie adaptation. Everyone in it is a star and we really wanted that to get the proper rollout it deserved but couldn't leave you one summer without one musical so I was very grateful we were able to move up "Hamilton" so that everyone can see it next weekend. What else are you working on? I'm working on -- the other thing I'm working on is I'm writing a new animated musical with Disney animation. It's -- I'm collaborating with the "Zootopia" guys and the guy who wrote "Moana" with me set in Colombia and that's all I can say before Bob iger shows up at my house. That's enough. Oh, lin-manuel, hey, we're grateful for these musicals you're giving us, man. You've been giving us a lot of entertainment and appreciate you coming on the show. Another belated happy father's enjoy the kid. Thanks, guys. The Aaron burr to that, Leslie Odom Jr. Will join us tomorrow and "Hamilton" will be on Disney plus started July the 3rd. Coming up, the best
